(Feeling) Joy

Feeling joy is an inside
job, never coming from others
no matter what we believe.
Joy cannot be purchased,
borrowed, created, or pursued.
Joy lives in your heart,
lit up in technicolor glory,
vibrant, radiant,
like Tigger,
already, always present
if you only allow yourself to
feel it.

Feeling joy comes from
exercising compassion,
practicing generosity,
acknowledging connection,
and leading with love
so you create a reality
where anything is
possible even when
everything seems

Feeling joy is your birthright.

Claim it.
