You are in the driver’s seat here at JOYELY. We want you to tell us what joy is. How do you find it, be it, and share it with your family, friends, and neighbors?
When I was 8 years old, I stood up from my crouched down position and my life changed instantly. It had been a joyful afternoon of playing in the sandbox, building mountains and moats with my shovel, using leaves, rocks, and sticks as decorations for the castle walls. “SHERYL!, my brother yelled and I turned my head to see what the heck was going on. The next moment and 30 years after that was all a blur. When the baseball broke my nose that lazy summer July day, I became disfigured, not just physically but emotionally, and mentally as well. I allowed that very hardball to break the steady stream of joy I had going from my heart to the world and back.
Do you have a moment in time like this? Well, damn, if I didn’t allow that day to rule my life for many years. I became very mobile, constantly moving, again and again, starting over, quitting, acquiring a bunch of bad habits…and then I would move again when I got bored or tired or fat or God forbid, someone did not like me.
Fast forward to early this year, in January of 2020, I decided to launch a brand about JOY. You know, I made all the mistakes, and learned all the lessons right? I thought I had it all figured out. And then COVID and protests and riots and our government’s constant upending came crashing in. What happened to me after this turn of events, likely happened to all of us.
We all found ourselves looking for new ways to experience joy. I don’t know about you, but I am more awake than ever, and things that used to be true are no longer. Things that I did in my free time now have no meaning. So for me, instead of changing the world with a yakety-yak yak about joy, the world changed me, the masters and influencers of joy that I met changed me and it has been heartbreaking, and painful and delightful to be in it all. I have taken my own message of finding, being, and sharing joy to a whole new level.
September 2020, My husband and I decided to open a little antique shop. Holy smokes, what fun! One of my first purchases was a $2 painting that I valued based on research on the antique sites to be at $95. I mean that is just glorious joy learning about others’ treasures. The JOYE chair sits in the center of our vintage studio, waiting to interview our special guests. Do stop by.
This brings me to you and today. You and me, I want to learn your joy, find it in your heart, be it with you, and share it with others as best we can. Hell, why not, what else are we doing!?
There are a few people being gathered to share their stories. These people have mastered joy and we cannot wait to put them in the spotlight.
The more she studied and lived this life of joy, the more people entered her life who also have their own powerful force fields. Experiencing connection after connection, and extending invitations to some “joy matches”, Sheryl soon had the tangible cornerstones of which had been whirling around in her heart. These are the Sages, founding finances, a core inner team, and her developing story around JOYELY.
Some people have a light that refuses to grow dimmer. Instead, the light becomes such a bright force over the course of a lifetime that they, themselves, have become their own energy source.
Sheryl Lynn, founder of JOYELY is one such light. Emerging at a time where it is more important than ever to cultivate that light- the light of health and healing that qualifies as nothing less than miraculous, the light of doing what had previously only been imaginary, the light of prospering financially— what Sheryl has discovered, with the help of her followers is that Joy, when mastered is the key to a life worth living.
The pieces came together over the course of the pursuit that took Sheryl’s flame into the full-blown energetic force of the sun itself: the journey from a college education, to a career, to children, to a Las Vegas-living, burlesque-dancing, motivational-speaking events-producing powerhouse! While on that journey, she realized that all of her choices had something in common: they were made in joy with the open objective of obtaining even more joy.
Sheryl is always grateful to her family and the company they built together over the last 20 years, Burst Management, LLC.
