from the introduction to
Juicy Joy - 7 Simple Steps
to Your Glorious, Gutsy Self
"What do you want?" Sarah asks me. A garlic-infused breeze kicks up the
palm fronds beside our table at our favorite neighborhood bistro. Her
kids and my kids - all smart, sweet and beautiful - chase one another
around the plaza fountain. Sarah gets up to bring them wishing coins.
What do I want?
I want more. I want to crash out of this invisible armor I'm
trapped in - to tear away the shackles and freefall, delirious and
wild. I want to plummet naked into a velvet ocean at midnight and roll
in the ecstasy of the waves. I want to peel back my layers and hold my
raw wounds up to the sun for healing.
I want to slice through these suffocating wrappings and grab onto CORE
ME - whoever that is - and never let her go; make her into the real me,
the only me, for some to love and some not to love .. . and I want to
not so painfully care who does and who doesn't.
I want to feel, taste, devour it all - no filters, no censors, no
gatekeeper telling me what is rightfully mine to take and what isn't. I
want rapture at the top of a mountain under a full moon. I want to
absorb me, embrace me, the light and the dark, the glorious and the
hideous, and cherish it all and laugh at it all forever.
Sarah's back. "So what do you want?" she asks.
What do I want? "Caprese salad and a cup of pasta fagioul."
We close our menus and clink our chiantis as my daughter crawls, sweaty
and precious, into my lap.
I eventually did tell my friend what I truly wanted . . . five years
later on another balmy evening at that same table. It took me that long
to develop any sort of sense that I deserved to have such desires, and
to dream of fulfilling them. It took five years of bittersweet climbing
- sometimes clawing - deeper and deeper into truths I had never allowed
myself to glimpse. Truths that tugged at me like a feverish itch, just
under the skin, so close and ever-present, yet so ephemeral, so elusive
when I chased them.
This is the story of my journey, but more than that. It's a guide to
accessing your own Juicy Joy. A direct, streamlined path you can
follow, in case you're wanting free of your armor, too. Come with me.
We'll start right here and end up on that mountaintop. You in?

Lisa McCourt's passion for
aligning people with their best selves began in 1997 with the
publication of I Love You, Stinky Face - the first of her many books
designed to assist parents in expressing unbridled, unconditional love
for their kids. With over five million books sold since then, Lisa is
overwhelmingly grateful for the opportunities she's had to create joy
and expansion in people's lives. In 2010 - 2011, two new additions to
the Stinky Face line will join Lisa's roster of 34 titles, including
two non-fiction parenting books endorsed by Jack Canfield who said,
"Reading this may be the greatest gift you give your child." Her books
have been translated into eleven languages, been featured on PBS's Between
the Lions, won seven publishing awards, received starred reviews
in PW and SLJ, and garnered praise from over 200 reviewers. A lifelong
student and teacher of personal development tools, Lisa has appeared on
CNN's Showbiz Today and is currently giving her Juicy Joy
workshops all over the country while working on her first feature film
and co-hosting the reality TV talk show, It's Your Life.

What they're saying:
I recently attended Lisa McCourt's workshop, and I must say, it was
honestly the best workshop that I ever attended. First, she presented
fascinating information. Seriously. But, even more importantly, she
drew on our personal experiences with exercises and an interactive
format, making this so rewarding and memorable. And, Lisa just has a
way of connecting with the audience ... her energy, her smile, her
passion about the subject ... I was blown away. It was completely
inspiring and really made me enthusiastic about what's next in life.
Cannot thank her enough! So excited! -- Jennifer Thornton
Lisa McCourt has a gracious, lively, fun and captivating energy. You
could enjoy anything that she has to offer because of the way she
presents herself and whatever she has to share. She has done her
homework in the spiritual field studying with many well-known teachers.
Her spirit, her genuine heart and her form of expression is well
enjoyed! She is someone who you would like to meet again and again. --
Lisa McCourt's Juicy Joy Workshop changed my life. I see everything
through a different filter now. I understand how I create my reality
and I've learned to accept everything that comes my way, along with
whatever feelings come up as a result of it. Being more in touch with
my feelings from the observer perspective has allowed me to let the
feelings flow through me instead of getting stuck in my body where they
would just create more unwanted experiences. I feel "lighter" as a
result of Lisa's workshop, and feel that I have become a beacon for
amazing experiences. I am living a more juicy, joyful life! -- Aimee
Lisa McCourt is amazing. Everything she does and says comes
directly from her heart and soul. -- Deborah Paiva
