Perfect love?

Perfect love doesn’t mean there aren’t flaws.


Perfect love is the act of doing your very best even after your mistakes. Learning the lessons from the mistakes.

Never giving up. Showing up. Being present. Knowing the importance of being there.

This is why I love the phrase perfectly imperfect....

Loving someone because of their imperfections...that is unconditional love. This is not to be confused with loving someone who purposefully goes out to hurt others and only thinks of self.


Jesus sees the imperfections, knows the heart and loves.

So when I say that my guy is perfect I mean that he’s perfectly imperfect for me. I SEE his love for self, for family and for me. He is a flawed man for sure but everyday he is present for his family. He is their cheerleader, their support. Who will be there when there is a crisis? Who can they count on for all the little moments?

This also made me think of my own dad. He has shown up for me since I was 10 years old. Is he flawed, of course. Does he love his family? Absolutely! He shows up for everything large and small. He is the one I call ️ when I need my cheerleader . He is a constant in all our lives.

So searching for true perfection in ourselves or in others will never happen. There is no such thing.


When we hold each other in grace and love each other for our imperfections, that is perfect love.

Why is it important to journal your thoughts, feelings and dreams?


It is so very important to journal to record all the highs and lows in your life. It’s a healthy way for you to express yourself and a great way to look back and note what needs to change.


I began journaling years ago. First it was a way to vent about the things that were heartbreaking. I kept looking back at moments when I was my happiest. The past is behind us but it can teach us how to live in the moment and what our heart wants in the NOW!


The very act of journaling helped me SEE that I was doing things over and over again and getting the same outcome. Something inside wanted change and I was ready to step out of my comfort zone. My soul was crying out and assured me that if I just take one step, then another and another that my higher self would be there to guide me.


I began going to regression workshops with Jessica Brown Ramirez. In this act of going out of my comfort zone, I started to find my authentic self. I felt a light inside that had dimmed over the years due to pain and heartbreak and I began to FEEL the light in me. I felt love, joy and happiness begin to fill my chest.


I began to see through my journaling that I needed to SERVE OTHERS from my heart and that this would manifest all that I wanted and needed in my life.


And this my friends is how my heart based mission created Joyful Self!


Please join me on this heart based mission to heal and empower yourself to ultimately go out and serve others!


We are here to love and connect but first we have to clear out the lessons from our journal to heal and transform! Cristy Joy

When was the last time you felt JOYFUL?


What does JOY feel like to you?


4 things you can do today to

find your JOY:


1. Be GRATEFUL...

journal all the things you are thankful for right now. Once you start, you will see how it keeps building.


2. Call a friend...

take time today to actually talk rather than text. Connection is very important for our relationships and for our wellbeing.


3. Get out in nature...

Nature helps us connect with ourselves. It helps us balance our breath. It puts the world around us in perspective.


4. Turn up the music...

Any kind of music that makes your body want to dance, move. Sing out loud ...it will fill you with joy!


Do one or do all of these today and you will find a piece of joy within you!
