Finding Joy and Satisfaction in Daily Living

Finding joy and satisfaction in daily living helps me feel fulfilled, peace and zest each day. You are promised a full and satisfied life.

In my book, Empower Your Girl, I share tips and tools on how to find satisfaction and joy in your daily life.

Do you find yourself thinking, “I am not satisfied, I missed an opportunity, I lost my dream or my dreams have passed me by?”

If you are not happy, and have feelings overwhelming you; distracted, unfulfilled then consider the options you have. It is your choice and you can make the change; it is your choice on how you create more time, more space, more fulfillment, more focus, more energy, and more peace. Taking back control of your calendar or agenda, creating space and margins to rest and be still will all lead you to feeling more energy and engaged with things which make you feel alive and at peace” (Crown, 2012).

Empower Your Girl shares one tool I use to find my joy and satisfaction, daily, by evaluating and reviewing my life priorities, using a “Wheel of Life.”


This is a template used by many as is a model, which helps me stay in the moment by knowing what my priorities are; ultimately helping me live with intention in everything I do. I found it gave me a quick and easy way to graphically identify the areas in my life to of which I want to devote more energy to, and help me understand where I might want to cut back. My wheel of life empowers me to stay focused and not get “off balance,” continue to develop awareness of important areas, reduce stress and frustration. The wheel of life gave me a “helicopter view” of my life helping me when the road got BUMPY and I know it can help you too” (Crown, 2012).  **Download Empower Your Girl here

You ultimately have to have a reason to get out of bed every morning. You need to have dreams, visions and hopes. By taking the time to evaluate your life as it is, reviewing how you spend your time daily will illuminate if your priorities are congruent with your goals and dreams.

Staying productive is good, but what you do, is more important and a key element to finding joy. Keeping active is great, but ensuring your on track to achieving your goals is crucial and vital to you finding joy and satisfaction.

Melinda’s “Top Secret” No. 1

Each morning, before I start worrying about my day and my “to do list” or looking at my phone and computer I grab my cup of coffee and grab my devotionals.

I use Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling and Joel Osteen’s Your Best Life each morning.

Starting my day with being still, filling my mind with positive ideas, refreshing wise words, and faith of possibilities, help me at a foundational level.

Sometimes the devotion gives me the focus I need or a reminder that God is with me. Sometimes I connect with scripture or a call to action of thankfulness and gratefulness. Whatever the message for the day is…I am stepping out in the world with a positive frame of mind, a positive spirit and a hope for my future.

Excerpt from the Empower Your Girl Prologue:

Every parent, at one time or another, feels inadequate in some way and unable to effectively communicate with their pre-teen or teenager.  As a parent of 3 daughters and the author of this guidebook, entitled “Empower Your Girl”, I am thrilled to be able to offer you what has worked for me and effectively helped me become a proactive parent, set appropriate boundaries, and given my girls the ability to manage their anxieties and to communicate their needs to me.

At times on my journey as a parent, I lacked value and felt worthlessness, shame and guilt. Through hard work and focus along with hope, faith and trust I have become successful at managing myself as well as effectively communicating with others, especially my daughters. On my journey I discovered as I learned how to feel empathy and compassion for my special needs daughter, I was able to connect with her, learn from her; ultimately leading to my ability to empower her.

This guidebook will help you know what it means to focus on other people rather than yourself, enabling you to listen and effectively communicate to your daughter. You will also develop ways of coping and managing your time better; enabling you to teach your daughter the keys she needs for her success. I found once I was able to better time-manage, find value in myself, and manage my anxiety I was better able to “hear” my daughter which created an opportunity for bond that led to a deep love and understanding of each other. The best thing you can do to help your daughter, is to help her believe in herself, draw appropriate boundaries, and manage her anxious thoughts……
