six-word story play

Hello dear Joyfueller,
Want to play for joy? I had a lovely conversation with customer service person at my cell phone company today. Somehow we found ourselves talking about writing. He told me he used to write. I told him I went through a very long period where I didn’t write at all, a drought that was a difficult time for me.
 
My new friend helped my original problem, then at the end of our call I said to him, “Hey, not sure if you want to write again, but if you do perhaps this might be a fun thing for you to try…” then I went on to tell him about Ernest Hemingway’s love of six-word stories. Hemingway is renowned for many things including inventing these pithy little word packets.
 
(Although I love Ernie, I’m thinking early humans probably invented them, round the fire one night… if we were truly earnest about it  😉 )
Anyway I shared one I wrote with my new friend–a deeply personal six-word story that took me 7 years to live. Six-word stories invite a great opportunity to write and capture an essence of something meaningful to you, and maybe to others too.
 
Why not have a go this weekend? What 6-word story do you have to tell? Perhaps write about something to do with life, your history/herstory? or your week, or today? or your imaginary rhinoceros? Want to play? If so, share your story in comments, maybe share where you are in our world too?!  You can post on social media with a new hashtag just for our community #mediaforjoyfuel. I’d love to feature your story(ies) in a future post!
 
(Oh…. about my new phone company friend? He was curious and he said he was going to try it. He missed writing.)

Have a Joyfuelled weekend dear love. I look forward to reading your stories. xoxo

limping for joy

Dear Heart,

That’s me…. a limping, wounded, bubble blowing, want-to-be-servant for joy–YOUR joy. If any of my posts or musings plop into your awareness, I hope it comes as a gift for your sacred beautiful deserving heart.

The reason? I think of you… ALL THE TIME. I often lie awake daydreaming about new ways I might nudge and remind you of your birthright for joy. With all of my heart I hope my writing will uplift, inspire, hold and nurture you upon a quest for a more joy in our broken and miraculous world. It hurts so much right now, to see all the brokenness.

I need to be brave… braver actually. I revere words and stories so much that sometimes I withhold them.

The time has come for me to trust my heart and share some personal stories. The sufferings I’ve endured are not exclusive or particularly unusual, but my pain demands my service to yours through words, art, beauty and the occasional radio Kindcast. So here I am, showing up, doing the work I feel so called to do. I know it’s been a little while since our last Joyfuel Kindcast, and I’m working on that.

I–like you–have burned in the fires of loss, illness and sadness. Now tarnished with an ashen patina, sometimes my words can sparkle. If you ever see the shine, really–truly deeply–that light is yours as much as it might be mine, and light bounces are good aren’t they? especially for our Joy.

Thank you for being here, for saying “like” and “subscribe”, for providing me with a possible entry point to your heart. I promise tremendous care and love.

joyfuel introduction

Hello. I’m Becky, a behind the scenes JOYFUeL fairy, dreaming up ways to share more kindness, creativity and JOY with you. I offer this site for YOU (and me) because WE deserve more moments of JOY. Most of us don’t make or take time for enough of ’em, so here I am–dreaming and playing–hoping to love and lift you more fully into your joy potential.

As of right now, I am working on two projects for our joy…

Project #1: Weekly posts on Facebook  for J🌺O💖Y and moments of ahhhhh. Like and follow to see them in your feed, to interrupt your facebook feed to remind you to breathe and honor your  JOY! These are called Joyfuel Mindful Moments. You can see some of them here. https://www.facebook.com/pg/joyfuelway/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1807806975973095

Project #2: The forthcoming Joyfuel Kindcast–an audio magazine sharing conversations and shining the light on youth and adults all around the world working for kindness, creativity and… can you guess? Yup!!! JOY! Your nominations for guests welcome here. https://joyfuel.org/nominate/

I’m so glad you are here… on earth right now, and on this little site dedicated to your JOY.
Becky

a joyfuel wish

Dear KindHearts,

I’m making a wish… a wish for our collective JOY. Human Joy is something we need to cultivate, nurture and protect; our personal joy and the joy of others.

My wish is truly for your joy.

Acting towards my wish I’m working super hard behind the scenes on the JOYFUeL Kindcast–a podcast series coming out later this year–all for JOY! How does this description sound? Does it sound like something you’d enJOY? Appreciate your input 🙂

The Joyfuel Kindcast is an independent podcast series sharing personal stories of people intentionally generating kindness or creativity anywhere on earth. We uplift ideas, thoughts and actions that increase human and global kindness, creativity, presence and joy.

much love for our joy,
becky suzik

sing your song

Dear Heart,

♪ ♫ Right now I have a few songs in my heart: one is any song “Moana” sings. 🙂 Another is any song reminding us of the gifts we have to give the world. I intend my song to be JOYFUeL — heART and words to inspire greater joy and deeper meaning in our lives. Happy Monday dear Friends. Bring forth your gifts! And if you don’t quite know what they are… whistle around the things you find curious. ♪ ♫

♪ ♫ We each have a song we must sing, be it with our voices or our lives. What is YOUR song, Beautiful? If you want to share, please post below in the open space.  ♪ ♫

my <3 and song for your JOY…
