Welcome to the Joy Community. Grow, Evolve, Thrive!

Scott and Gigi Martell

Our goal is help build a foundation that brings joy, no matter the situation: entering or in retirement, or going through any life change where we are challenged. From challenge comes opportunity for joy, growing and evolving and thriving in your new opportunity.

Joy is much more than simple happiness—it’s building a foundation so that when trials and tribulations do come, there is a support system—internally and externally, physically and spiritually—that helps us survive, even thrive. 

Our blog is devoted to explorers seeking joy in all its elements, through:

  • Brain health, caring for what makes us uniquely human
  • Good thinking,  since thoughts drive our feelings, decisions, our life
  • Invigorating health, including nutrition and diet
  • Traveling and adventure, so we are inspired and excited
  • Embracing community so we know we’re not alone
  • Building relationships that are deep and real
  • Creating financial security, so it’s not an obsession
  • Helping others, for from that comes real blessings, joy
  • Developing spiritual awareness, so we gain a deeper peace and understanding
  • and other topics you feel are important to experiencing joy

Words of Wisdom to Inspire Joy

[Words of Wisdom is a regular part of our blog, and we add to it often–You can find more ‘wisdom’ in the blog, or click the link below.]

That’s wisdom!

Words of Wisdom are quotes we find that we believe people might like to read and ponder. Many of them make for a good meditation about where you are in life, and where you want to go.

Learning never stops. Many people die at 25 but are not put in the coffin until 75. The learning stopped for them early.

Reinvent Yourself by James Altuch

A sterling reputation is better than striking it rich; a gracious spirit is better than money in the bank. 

Proverbs 22:1 (MSG)

Life consists of what a person is thinking about all day.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our destiny determines our legacy. you are today where your thoughts have brought you. You will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.

James Allen
