Joie de Vivre- French for “Joy of Life”, One thing I love about traveling is learning new and interesting stuff. Ever since my 1st trip to Europe I was captivated by their way of living. Very relaxed, so stress free, no rushing, happy, drinking coffee, having a cigar and deep, fun conversations. I just had to know what the secret was and decided to start conversations with locals to find out. Joie de Vivre it’s a way of life, it’s a mental state. It means to acknowledge life’s ups and downs and to take life in stride. It means to appreciate all the small things which might normally go unnoticed. It means to be grateful for everything you DO have instead of wanting the next best thing. It means don’t stress over things you can’t control/change. It means make good choices which bring you joy and allow your soul to expand. It means choose to NOT struggle.
It means allow yourself permission to explore, discover and experience new things and people. It means embrace all of life and know that the universe truly coincides with your innermost desires. So, desire and thrive on goodness, good intentions for all, creating a better world for all people. Yep, it’s all about the passion behind your human existence. And when you begin to acquire that joie de vivre feeling, you start to truly feel good about your life and life in general. And that breeds better wellbeing. A total WIN!
We should all spread some Joie de Vivre, it could really change your life or someone’s way of life for the best.
