[MMM] #Elbowgate, Chewbacca, & Joy @ Work

May 16, 2016 | The “Viral” Edition


Good Tuesday Morning,


The internet almost broke this past week. Well, that may be a bit of an exaggeration, however when #elbowgate broke it made me ponder how, even at the highest levels of our land, that tempers can get out of control and that life is full of responsibilities, goals, and pressures.


When Candace Payne innocently posted a video about something that brought her deep joy, this happened. As I write this, there has been over 2.5 million shares & over 100 million views of her video.


With all of the stress and responsibilities in our lives, we are deeply in need and drawn to JOY.


In the day to day reality, there are deadlines, laundry, cooking, bills, health issues, relationship challenges, commuting & work pressures. Joy is easy. It is shareable. It is infectious. It inspires us. It lifts us, nourishes us, energizes us, and it’s the fuel that keeps us alive & makes life great.


Joy; a feeling of great pleasure and happiness.


Candace, you inspired all of us. You choose to enter into joy and your willingness to share this touched literally millions of lives this past week.

This week, you will have all kinds of choices. They can involve elbowing a colleague or looking for the best in people. Choose joy. Look for it, savour it, and share it.


Along the road with you!
