I embody my name: Joy.
Which simply means I am a positive-energy, love-life kind of person.
I spent five years living as a single mom living on a sailboat with my two children. That tells you: I love adventure, I don't require much in the way of material possessions, and I love the ocean and all things ocean-related. I would prefer not to have learned electrical and plumbing, but I was willing to learn.
I teach presence and I live the practices I teach. I believe this moment is a gift, and I choose to celebrate the fullness in it.
I don't like drama. I won't bring it to the table, and I hope you won't either.
I love: laughter, candle-light, live music, chocolate, art galleries, delicious food, hiking in the hills, sailing and water-sports, dancing, moonlight, sunset, skygazing, travel, being in a large group of like-energy people or quietly being at home, long walks at ocean's edge, tennis and bowling (although I'm not great at either, I love the games).
I love the practice of yoga and meditation.
I am daring myself to learn aerial silks.
As a writer and teacher, I have lots of "off-time" to explore and play. As an entrepreneur, my goal is to continue to offer online courses, as well as offline conferences so that I may incorporate lots of travel. I love the freedom of owning my own company; I work very hard, I appreciate every moment of "living my dream", and ultimately, I would love to share this dream with someone.
I have a quiet, gentle, light up the room kind of presence. I am a good listener, because I really care about other's stories--they inspire me. However, I also thrive in extreme "push your body" kind of adventures. So, I don't fit in a box, but if I did, it would be overflowing with love of life.
My children live with me. Being their mother is a blessing. Ultimately, to share that joy with another would just expand the blessing.
If you read this, and you wonder where do you fit? I've built, am still building, this life, and I think how incredibly awesome it would be to share it...in yours, too...to one day combine, and live the 'ultimate dream'...whatever that may be. For now, I love the idea of exploring and adventuring with a special someone. Of quiet nights at home and long walks and lots of activity out in world. I don't "need" you...but I would love to know you...and I would celebrate that knowing.
Whatever it is you think I would enjoy. I love to be delightfully surprised (definitely not the "unpleasant one"...have had enough of those!)...and I love the idea that a person could read the above and thoughtfully plan something.
My new favorite is the idea of brunch..a long, leisurely, delicious brunch.
And, anything that combines, laughter, food, fresh air, conversation, hand-holding, and perhaps a kiss if the chemistry is right...*awesome*.
While I am very outgoing, I am a bit old-fashioned, in that I won't approach you first, I will definitely wait for you to express interest in me. So, if you have read this, and you feel resonance, please reach out and connect. (After that initial contact, I am absolutely about showing my interest!)
