I’m calling it a tiny act of radical protest. Tiny yet mighty. Seemingly superficial yet layered with mindfulness and meaning.

This week I’m committed to my practice of wearing my joy every single day. A new outfit, lovingly picked out each evening before I go to bed. A little gift waiting for me when I wake. An invitation to protest.

In a world fraught with so much darkness, it feels like a tiny guerrilla act of radical love to say “Today, one way I can protest the darkness and stand for light is by claiming my own light, and making it visible.”

So much more than clothes. It’s about choosing to be seen, claiming our radiance, and allowing it – even in the smallest of ways – light the pockets of our hearts as well as the darkness in the world. We need more love. More joy. More color. More being seen. More delight. More permissions to know and explore who we are so that we can show up more confidently, more expressed, more US. Living a life of creative joy is a beautiful gift we can give to the world.

Wherever you may be in your Wear Your Joy journey, may you discover that it’s never a superficial quest to discover – to remember, really – the essence of you who are and to allow it to be seen. The world needs us to show up for ourselves.


PS: Tights and dress are old (not sure of the brand). Shoes are old Danskos. Shirt is from my favorite eco-friendly brand, Gudrun Sjoden.
