Good morning!

Fourth episode of the Underbelly Project podcast. Let’s just all be okay with Thursday morning each week. It’s official now. Joy this week — wow.
Joy.

  • First, it’s vital. Not frivolous, not an extra, not childish.
  • Second, it requires present moment awareness. Joy lives in the present. Only.
  • Third, joy without vulnerability becomes terrifying. We can use aversion therapy to up our tolerance for joy. (I’ll tell you how.)

I share stories about Homeboy Industries this week as my example of what can happen from a strong Joy-ful stance.

  1. Homeboy Industries — Father Greg Boyle
  2. Jump Start Your Joy — Paula Jenkins Podcast

Look for a blog post with more resources later today. I’m upping my social media game :) so look for a bit more joy on Instagram and then…Next: Solitude! We’ll dive into why and how-to do solitude well.

And please, if you know anyone who might like to share this journey, share this project. Excited to stay in the arena with you.
