Want to feel joy? I've curated my favourite articles, audio tracks,
downloads and beautiful things designed to get you there.

Disruptive joy. Why do we push away positive feelings?

Here’s the short answer: Because positive feelings are a form of power. And power is all kinds of uncontrollable, elevating, disruptive, expansive, and threatening — to your own fear, and to people who prefer low-risk living...

The difference between happiness & joy. And why it helps to know.

There's a difference between the definition of happiness and the definition of joy. It's valuable to be aware of this because when things get tough, logic might want you to default to despair, or utter sadness or worse, you might think you have to choose between hardship and joy, or support and separation, or light and dark...

My Upper Limit Problem and how we resist joy

When the stakes are high or when the success is more than you’ve experienced before, Upper Limit Problems can strike. You rain on your own parade. You make a windfall of cash and you get into a car accident. You fall in love and you pick a silly fight. You come down with something before a big moment…

Like say, your bestie loves all things owls but you’re holding on to that owl-embroidered smock that you never wear because your aunt made it. Give it.

reviving the favourite parts of yourself
