You may have read on Explore Your Spirit where I share that the theme of Explore Your Spirit TV is to brings you “Joie de vivre” (french for a cheerful enjoyment of life and an exultation of spirit). Each month I explore a new episode on EYS TV as I interview luminaries who share the joy in living and follow them along their path to see what the best and brightest minds are doing in the mind body spirit community.
Last month, Peaceful Warrior Dan Millman was my guest on Explore Your Spirit TV. His new book, The Four Purposes of Life has something to share with everyone, regardless of where they are in their life. It’s a wonderful gift for high school and college graduates up to retirees looking to start out on their next chapter in life. Check out the interview on Explore Your Spirit TV to see what Dan has to say about his journey and the purpose of life.
I’ve always connected with Joie De Vivre and the concept of living a life of finding joy in every moment. I delight in the simplest of acts and I find that when my energy is connected with joy, everything flows around me and the most delightful, amusing and synchronistic events occur. For me, that’s often about relishing and delighting in the small things that come along the way, where the Universe shows its sense of humor and says, Hey there, I acknowledge you and what you are doing and you are on the right path.
Today for me, it was a small thing, but I found it so charming that I had to share with you. I had been looking for a cup to take with me while I travel, that would meet a long list of needs that I wanted. This included the cup being durable and able to handle being on the road and getting bounced around and probably dropped a few times as well. This meant it would be probably be plastic, but I wanted to make sure it was a BPA Free plastic, so safe to use. I also wanted it to be double walled, so that it would keep drinks cold and not sweat on me, my books, paperwork and other material while teaching and lecturing at events. Last, and this I thought was the challenge, I wanted it to have a top that would fit securely so it wouldn’t spill while allowing a straw for easy drinking.
With all that in mind, I began my search online to find such a cup and found one that I thought might work. The price was right and so I ordered it after only seeing a tiny square picture of it, which looked like it had a floral design. It has arrived and the design is beautiful, full of abundant florals and fruits and everything I wanted, double walled, BPA Free, a twist off top that fits securely and has a straw that doesn’t fall out and somehow doesn’t allow spills, even when I tip the cup sideways, wow! Then I see it, and I can’t contain my laughter and delight! There written on the cup is JOIE DE VIVRE! My very own cup expressing my energy and thoughts, how fortuitous and synchronistic! Now with each sip of water or other cold beverage I take, I have the beautiful reminder of the joy in my life every day!
It’s all about the little things in life, that can bring such joy to our day. Take the time to look for these simple signs from the Universe saying, “I love you, I get you, and I resonate with what you are saying.” You’ll begin to see these signs all around, tiny blessings just for you!
Here’s to Joie De Vivre in your Life every day in every way!
