What brings you joy? If life has knocked you sideways and joy feels JUST out of reach, these Five Signposts to Joy and Purpose may help you find the direction you need to travel.

The biggest opportunity to feel joy is to live in congruence with your purpose and your values, and becoming clear on the things you need to include more of in your life going forward, (and what you actively need to do to put boundaries of ‘no’ in place) will help you to make the space and time to do what brings you joy.

I hope this will help you find joy when life knocks you sideways.
