It starts with a goal.

We all know that yes?

Every article offering “Top Ten Tips” / “Daily Rituals to Be Your Best You” / “Weekly Habits of Successful People” / “Life Hacks” tell me that first, I need to set a goal.

So – why am I writing:

To discover what brings me joy.

It is simple. It is also a little selfish. It is a goal that I am not sure anyone else will be interested in.

A goal that may not even need to be written about.

So … why write it down? Why not just experiment and find out what fits?

Because I want to capture the journey. I want to remember learnings.

I also want to write.

And I want to share. Because, maybe, there are some people like me, who want more joy in their lives … and want ideas on how to invite it in.

And why ‘joy’?

Well, happiness has been done.

… laughing …

And, after reading the books and doing the exercises and dabbling in the neuroscience and chemistry, there is a possibility that the ‘happiness’ goal is not something that I will ever realise.  Or, even if I do – may take a while.

And I would like a little respite on the journey. The life equivalent of a sugar-fuelled high.

I would like more moments of ‘joy’; I would like us to become better friends.

This blog will serve as a map to how I worked it out.
