Jump Start Your Joy

Jump Start Your Joy is a podcast by Paula Jenkins, a life coach, project manager, joy enthusiast and podcast consultant living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Inspired by the quote “Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day (Henri Nouwen),” this lively show looks at the inspiration, intention, and action that lead to joy in the every day. The show is a mix of solocasts and interviews with entrepreneurs, rock stars, authors, actors, life coaches and other game changers. Whether choosing joy seems to be an improbably choice, or the most difficult one they’ve ever made, guests share how it has made a difference in their lives, the world, and other peoples lives. As a multi-passionate, Paula’s leverages a deep appreciation of Star Wars, self help books, religious studies, boy bands and 90s movies to create a show that has spunk, humor, and a lot of aha moments along the way.

Emily Ann Peterson joins to share about how to follow your heart, tap into "Bare Naked Bravery," and nourish and nurture yourself while living with an illness.

What we talk about in this episode:

  • Her early joy of music as a child, and taking inspiration from pieces like “Night on Bald Mountain.”
  • How Rob Bell talks about grief – that as a society we have difficulty with it being wide, and deep, and we are uncomfortable with grief being a public emotion
  • That music often expresses emotions for us the way that words can not
  • The three main ways to express bravery: vulnerability, creativity / imagination, and improvisation
  • How having defiant expectations can impact the outcome of anything you face
  • The art of letting go as an act of faith
  • Her community and podcast at Bare Naked Bravery
  • Her new book of the same name
  • Resistance as a necessary part of life
  • Ways to jump start your joy: writing, finding community, and finding connection
