I am so excited! Today I released my FREE ebook on “Finding JOY”. Joy is a frequency that we want to tap into and yet some of us struggle with having JOY in our lives, so I created this free ebook to help anyone who wants to access more JOY.
This is a short but impactful little book that could change your life right away. I do hope you take advantage of this and get your free copy today!
And most of all I hope you enJOY the book as much as I enJOYed writing it.
One of my most favorite take aways from the book by Bronnie Ware called “The Top Five Regrets of the Dying” is this one:
#5” I wish that I had let myself be happier.
This is a surprisingly common one. Many did not realise until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called ‘comfort’ of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content. When deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again.
When you are on your deathbed, what others think of you is a long way from your mind. How wonderful to be able to let go and smile again, long before you are dying.
Life is a choice. It is YOUR life. Choose consciously, choose wisely, choose honestly. Choose happiness.” from Bronnie’s book.

As both a Life Coach and a Certified Infinite Possibilities Trainer & Coach I really, really, encourage my clients to actively pursue happiness! It is a worthwhile endeavor as you can see. If it is one of the top five regrets of those on their deathbed, it’s pretty important I’d say. 🙂
Journalling is a very powerful way to set a deliberate intention around your pursuit of happiness. Journalling is wide open and you can get creative with it. You may want to journal about your thoughts, desires and your dreams around happiness or things, place, memories, and people that make you happy. What you can write about is endless really.
I am very excited to be able to offer this amazing Happiness Journal where you can record all of your thoughts and ideas for your Happiness Plan. This journal has lots of space for you to put the power of words into action!!! It is also loaded with happiness quotes to inspire you on your journey.
I hope you take advantage of this and start on making your happiness a priority! 🙂
There is no way to happiness –happiness is the way.
Thich Nhat Hanh

Does this happen to you too? I just love when this happens because it reaffirms to me that there are positive forces and guiding angels working with me at all times and that is pretty cool.
For example, yesterday I had just made a Facebook post quoting Deepak Chopra. “You must find the place inside yourself where nothing is impossible.” — Deepak Chopra “
I put my phone down and opened a book to a random page and on that page there was reference to Deepak Chopra and something that he had told this person, the author of the book I had just picked up….. I definitely took that as a sign and I lapped up the information. :-)
If you are curious as to what it was about, it was about remaining childlike so that you can be open to miracles, healing and more. As we age, many of us become blinded to wonder and to infinite possibilities and that is sad. By remaining childlike, we remain open to anything and that all is possible! Everything is amazing to a young child and they see the world as a brand new adventure and opportunity every day.
Think of when you were a little kid. Could your imagination run wild with infinite possibilities and playing let’s pretend? This my friends is a secret to creating the life you want.
By remaining childlike and using our imagination and visualization, we can have profound life shifts and create the life of our dreams! . 🙂
And let’s go back to my original quote from Deepak “You must find the place inside yourself where nothing is impossible.” How perfect is this to tie it all in? Perfect, I’d say. 🙂
Well last night, the same day I wrote this post, I randomly picked a book out of my library called “Finding Joy”, and when I decided to turn to one of its pages, I opened to this title on one of the pages: “Learn to Take Energy Readings: A Thermometer for Self-Preservation“. WOW! The chapter was all about using a meter to register JOY! Coincidence? I think not. 🙂
Here is an excerpt from the chapter that you might enJOY:
“To take an energy reading, imagine a thermometer inside you going from light to dense on a scale of 1 to 10. When you consider spending time with a friend, reading a book, selecting food, making love, buying clothes, interviewing for a job, looking at a new apartment, simply take a reading on a scale of 1 to 10 of how light or dense you feel. It’s amazing how most people come up with a number right away”. 🙂 From the book “Finding Joy” by Charlotte Davis Kasl, Ph. D
I hope you too remain childlike and check in with yourself by using your own Joy Meter and doing more of those things that bring you JOY!
Maggie Holbik.com is very much a child. She had decided a long time ago that she was never going to grow up or at least lose her childlike view of life and all of its wonder and beauty. 🙂 And so be it and so it is! 🙂
“If you carry JOY in your heart, you can heal any moment.”
If you know me, you know I use the word ‘JOY’ a lot! 🙂 I really believe that the most direct connection to have more divine moments in our lives, is through JOY. To me, these are the moments that matter the most! I know there will be challenges and hardships in life, so on the flip side, I FOCUS on creating JOY and bringing it into my life as much as I can.
In fact, just yesterday I came up with a new term for things like a ‘coffee break’ or a ‘break’. Now I call them “JOY Breaks“. 🙂
Finding ways to experience more JOY is well worth the effort, in my opinion. For many years now I have shared with people my “JOY Meter” theory that I developed. Whatever you do or think about doing in your life, ask yourself “Does this bring me JOY?” or “Will this experience bring me JOY?” And then see where it sits on your JOY meter.
For example, let’s say a friend asks you to take a trip to a city four hours away. How does your heart respond when you hear the question? Do you feel instant elation and excitement ie. your JOY Meter is dinging and pulsing to the top, or do you feel dread and your heart is heavy? Maybe you love this city or maybe you don’t or maybe the thought of a 4 hour drive pleases you or displeases you? Either way, simply check in with your JOY Meter and find out.
It is really simple actually. Start to do and pursue things that bring you JOY and that set your JOY Meter off, and most importantly honour yourself by listening to that meter! 🙂
“Just follow your joy. Always. I think that if you do that, life will take you on the course that it’s meant to take you.”
I swear I couldn’t love ❤ you more than I do right now, and yet I know I will tomorrow.
I love when things flow. This morning I keep seeing messages about Love and I Love that! 🙂 pun intended! ❤ ❤ ❤
Here is one that I saw in a Daily Teachings from The Secret by Rhonda Byrne
“Our highest power is love, and it is one thing each of us has an unlimited amount of. How much love do you give to others in one day? Each day we have an opportunity to set out with this great, unlimited power in our possession, and pour it over every person and circumstance.
Love is appreciating, complimenting, feeling gratitude, and speaking good words to others.
We have so much love to give, and the more that we give, the more that we receive.”
The last line is of course my favorite “the more that we give, the more that we receive”. It is such a simple formula and I use it often. Whatever I want more of, I give more of….. Love, JOY, Kindness, Compassion, Inspiration…. etc. etc. etc. I wish you all nothing but JOY and LOVE today and always and in all ways.

I love lilacs! My sister in Toronto sent me an email yesterday saying she thought of me when she saw these. Apparently where she lives, the lilacs are in bloom. Not yet where I am though, so something to look forward to!
The sweet smell of these flowers are amazing to me and it takes me to an almost mystical place when I inhale their beauty. And the colors! Although they come in various colors, light purple, dark purple and white being the most common in my neck of the woods, I like the light purple the best! What are your favorites?
I hope you find extra beauty in the flowers this spring. I know I enJOY them more and more every year and it seems as I age, their beauty becomes even more profound to me.

I am writing this blog post more for me so I can remember something that moved me deeply yesterday, but hey if you are here and want to read along, feel free.
So here it is. Yesterday I was driving by a funeral home and saw the cars outside. It made me wonder because of the time of day if they were having a luncheon about that time. I started thinking about how I love little tea sandwiches. I always have. I can pass on the desserts but the little sandwiches I have a hard time saying No to :-).
My spouse also knows this and we have often talked about how there will be little sandwiches at my funeral. 🙂 I started to think about this and in one brief moment in time while pondering these little sandwiches, I had an epiphany!
Life will go on and it will happen quickly! I saw the people say goodbye to me, say some nice words, eat little sandwiches, sip on coffee and tea and enJOY some desserts and then hop in their cars and go back to work, to their homes, to their life. It will go on as it always does.
I may not be conveying what I feel here but that’s okay because I get it and I did mention this blog post was more for me to remember the moment from yesterday’s drive by the funeral home. 🙂
What do I take from this?
. life is short so make the moments matter and the moments count
. forgive quickly and often
. never begrudge a Monday, it is always one less that you will have
. look at everything and every experience as though it were both the first and last time you will feel that, experience that, or see that
. have gratitude for the simple things like a bed to sleep in, the smell of coffee, the sound of rain, the blue sky, the breath of your loved ones who are still walking beside you on earth because it reminds you that they are still here with you, the smile from a random stranger, the hot cup of tea, the good book, your warm socks, etc. etc. etc.
. chase and CHOOSE JOY like nobody’s business
. find pleasure and JOY everyday and as much as you can!
. eat the chocolate! (and the little sammies off course) 🙂
. appreciate each and everyday for the gift that it is, they are numbered and we all know it… it’s realizing it that matters most
. throw FEAR out the window and tell it you never want to see it again! Live fearlessly and in JOY!
. be as much YOU as you can! Authentic, Real, Raw in all your imperfection which is perfect!
. be FREE…………….

My daughter Sivanna is a pretty amazing girl. She continues to bring the Joy of Life into our home every day.
I was reminded by Facebook Memories of this list Sivanna made me for Mother’s Day several years ago. I couldn’t resist enJOYing it all over again and sharing it once again. It’s too cute!
. is awesome
. is pretty like me
. is sooo cool
. gives me sweet hugs
. loves me
. is a great Mom
. is an awesome Mom
It’s hard to pick which one I like best but if I had to I think I’d go with “gives me sweet hugs”.
Happy Mother’s Day everyone! EnJOY the day whether you are a mother by blood, by heart, by choice, by love, by caring, by being a good friend, or whatever way your motherly love comes through. We are all mothers in our own ways!
Nurturing is love expressing itself and is the thread that weaves it way through all hearts that beat to the gift of life.
