Hi, I’m Katy…
Allow me to introduce myselves: I’m a multi-faceted personality; Speaker, mom, book nerd, geek, blogger, Development Coach, Productivity & Time Management Specialist, and absolutely enjoying every minute of it. I love spoiling my inner child, solving puzzles, being outside, and I’m the writer here at discoveryofjoy.com, a site full of ways to bring joy into everyday life.
In order to help those around me, I’ve become an expert at creating systems and strategies for achieving your goals and maximizing your productivity.
I am an everyday human, filled with hope, longing, trepidation, and excitement. I wish I could say my life is easy, that I have it all together. I would love to tell you that it’s normal, organized, and simple. But the truth is, it’s not. It’s hard. It’s dirty. It’s messy. I make mistakes and I’m not perfect. But I want my life to be authentic and real. I’d like to believe I’ve been an optimist since birth, I know I’m a romantic at heart, and each day I choose to be filled with joy. I’m not where I’d really like to be, but I am better than where I was.
It wasn’t too long ago that I was frustrated, lost, worrying all the time. Afraid of failure, always finding the worst in the situation, always giving up. Betrayal, lies, pain, loneliness, heartache, loss, they’ve all graced my life over the years. When each hurt arrived, I was given a choice to embrace that hurt, or choose to find the joy within the pain. Sometimes it was an easy choice, sometimes not so much. I’ve been blessed with a network of people to support me, pick me up off my backside, and bring me back to myself so I can succeed.
Just like you, each day I’m faced with the challenge of a thousand choices in my life. Choices mold and create the life we want, or keep us trapped in a life we simply trudge through. Choices make us who we are. Choices define our way of thinking, and ultimately, our success or failure. And joy is one of those choices. Even in the hard times, we can choose joy.
That’s how Discovery of Joy started. Deciding to choose joy regardless of the circumstances is always a successful choice. When we find success in what we attempt, we create a mindset to embrace joy.
Day by day, I’m choosing to find joy in the life I’ve been blessed with.
