A Milestone Moment for Planet Joy

I’m not really into birthdays or most holidays. Often, they feel perfunctory. People gathering because of some external stimulus that we have culturally agreed is important. I much prefer milestone moments, or milestone celebrations. These feel more conscious, deliberate and imbued with meaning.

Milestone Moments are often spontaneous and unexpected, a realization that something really amazing has happened in our lives. It could be a subtle but meaningful inner shift in perspective about ourselves. Or it can be something bigger and more obvious.

Milestone Moments can be easily overlooked or taken for granted. That’s why it’s so important to take the time to spotlight these as special events.

Back in 2016, I officially Kickstarted Joy-Based Living with a group of good friends. WAY BACK THEN I never imagined just how much we would have to traverse in order to LAND where I originally intended and envisioned.

YESTERDAY NIGHT, WE ARRIVED. I posted the final piece of writing for this very important page which I’ve been working on for 2 years (Here’s the link).

The faces and words of our members will be artfully displayed in the JBL PopUp Art Exhibit on May 21 (see poster below). Locals, I hope to see you there!

The words of our JBL members FEEEL so much more beautiful and more empowering than any certificate or graduate degree I have ever received.


I am SO GRATEFUL to every single one of our JBL members. We really are creating PLANET JOY, one amazing relationship at a time. I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!!

To those of you who’ve been supporting this amazing work but you’re not one of our practicing members – don’t worry – I have plans to spotlight you, too! You are “FRIENDS OF JOY-BASED LIVING” and You Shall Be Celebrated, too! STAY TUNED!!!! THANK YOU FOR BELIEVING AND SHARING YOUR LOVE ALL THESE YEARS!!!

  1. During a coffee break earlier today, I got an extra (unexpected) “jolt” of Good Mojo from this TRULY inspiring post, Debbie!!! If the old saying is true (and I firmly believe it is), “What we put our attention on grows stronger,” then I sense a LOT more joy, goodness, healing, growth and fulfillment is destined to come forward AND ripple into the world’s collective consciousness, as a result of the JBL community “keepin’on keepin’ on”!!! AMEN, REV’!!! πŸ™‚

    1. Cool! My friend Linda keeps saying that the ripples of what we’re doing are going places we can’t even imagine! You just proved that πŸ’₯πŸ™πŸ’₯
