The Art of Spreading Joy

I was working with a client last week who is a new mom and we were talking about our Christmas plans.

She said, "I want to go and visit my family." She gave birth in October, so everything is still very new. Her plan is to visit her parents, her husbands parents, and a sibling within a week.

I said, “Well that's ambitious!” But her reply to me was so heartfelt and sweet.

She said, “The baby is joy and I want to share the joy of him with as many people as possible.” I sat there for a moment and thought go and spread joy wee one.

I turned to the baby and said, “You have an amazing mama.”

As I was driving home, I passed by the hospital. It got me thinking about all the beginnings and endings, and the joy and sorrow that it brings. Many people will be giving birth this holiday season and experiencing the joy a new life brings. At the same time, many will be struggling with the pain of letting go, of death, or grieving the loss of a loved one.

This is what life seems to be about: joy or grief, day or night, light or dark, happiness or sadness, plenty or lack, thin or fat, and rich or poor. We live in a world of duality where we experience all that life has to offer, the highs and the lows. We are a soul having a physical experience, and experiences can be ecstatic or horrible—there are lessons in both. I've had my fair share of tough ones, and I know that those experiences have shaped who I am.

I started thinking about all the ways we can spread Joy, especially at this time of year when so many of us are facing challenges. Here are five simple simple ways to spread joy to others.

5 Ways To Spread Joy

  1. Smile—A smile goes a long way and costs nothing. Did you know that it takes less muscles to smile than it does to frown? You have no idea how a smile can affect someone — they could be having a rough day and your smile could shift their energy. So smile.

  2. Words—They are powerful. It can lift someone up or tear them apart. I remember Thumper's mom saying, "If you can't say anything nice, then don't say anything at all." That's a powerful statement! Use your words wisely to Bless, Heal, and Prosper.

  3. Be Kind—This is a busy time of year and people can wrapped up in it. Stop and take a breath! It doesn't cost anything to be kind so hold the door open for someone, compliment someone if you feel inspired too, and don't panic in the parking lot.

  4. Write a note—Everyone loves to get a handwritten note or card. Notes are lovely ways to show you care. The person receiving the note will feel special because it is so unusual in today's world. You can tuck it in a purse, in your child's lunch bag, or on the seat in a car. Believe me, this will put a smile onto someone's face.

  5. Listen—Really listen and be fully engaged in the conversation with the person. How often have you been with someone when you realize that you haven't heard a word they said? All anyone wants is to be heard, so be fully present and listen.

These are a few ideas to get you into the joyful mood and to see that it is very easy and doesn’t cost anything. Be joyful.
