The singular message in Unleash Joy is "Grow up and take care of yourself." This book resonated with me from the very first chapter. I am utterly convinced that by reading and implementing these positive and sensible recommendations, my life can and will reach new heights I have only dreamed of.

As a new mom and emerging entrepreneur, Unleash Joy was a welcome breath of fresh air during what is a very hectic, challenging, and emotional time for me. I loved the balance of a warm, supportive tone throughout the book combined with actionable and impactful ways to experience mindfulness, in a non-overwhelming format. In fact, I looked forward to the daily "build the habit" exercises as a way to be mindful while often getting some precious me time. I would highly recommend this book to any woman who is seeking ways to find joy and peace in a beautiful and approachable way.

Empowerment is Uplifting! As women, we’re quick to put ourselves down too much. We criticize our behinds, groan at the flab, and despise the wrinkles under our eyes – but to me, those are not defects – those are marks of wisdom in the many years we’ve walked this Earth. That’s what I loved about Janeen Brown’s Book Unleash Joy. Its purpose is to unleash joy from within you and inspire you to do great things. I truly enjoyed this book and I love the workbook that accompanies it, it’s a way for you to reach your inner self, get in touch with your goals and ambitions while knowing that you are special and beautiful, and when you unleash joy: all your dreams come true. As a pre-reader for this book, I was truly happy to serve and voice my opinion about this wonderful book. I think it’s one that every woman should look at or have on their night table. More so, I was happy to have met Janeen and see where her remarkable inspiration comes from. Truly, I believe this is a book that as women will help us discover our hidden potential.

It is said that happy people want to help everyone around them be happy, while unhappy people really don’t want to be around people who are experiencing joy. Recently a friend posted on Facebook that she was tired of all the gratitude and happy posts on her Facebook feed because she feels that by encouraging others to be happy, we’re robbing them of a true “human experience.” Sadly, many people feel that they deserve their misery and that it’s a worthwhile endeavor. These people feel that in suffering, they are feeling a range of emotion that makes them human. In addition to demanding that others embrace their misery, they revel in the sympathy that accompanies it. Misery is far easier to express than joy, and many people feel that since so many people are happy, their sadness is what makes them special.
While the human emotional range is indeed vast, it’s also true that “to err is human”. Surely we can agree that striving for joy is a worthy pursuit. In seeking happiness, we live our dreams, watch as

our world becomes a wonderful place to live in, and we teach our
children that adversity does not mean an end to joy. By wallowing
in our sadness, we risk depression and even suicide. Our brain can
become addicted to emotional suffering, just as it can to the strength
of overcoming it. Which will you choose?
I remember when I first heard that you can “choose” to be happy.
I didn’t believe it. I said that depression was a mental condition that
required medication. I realized later that I may just be a happiness
Luddite, so I tried telling myself that I was happy. I tried saying that
my life was amazing and filled with wonder, and I smiled at myself
in the mirror even when I didn’t feel like it.
You know what? I suddenly felt happier. It was working. I was
choosing to be happy, and joy was flowing into my being.
In this book, you will find incremental changes, that when
committed to, can improve a person’s life in compounding, but
subtle ways. The ten habits discussed in the first section will help
you to change your environment and the way you feel about how
things are manifesting in your life. The ten mindset changes in the
second section are ways of viewing the world which can increase
peace and clarity while better defining what you want. You can
create the world around you, simply by deciding what you want
in it, and then working to fill your world with that vision. The
third portion of this book is a series of ten mindfulness practices
that produce an abundant and joy-filled life. By integrating these
mindfulness strategies, I have created a life full of small joys that
have transformed my state of being from one of stress and anxiety
to one of joy and peace.

While you may certainly read this book from front to back, feel
free to open it up to any section and read only that portion, set it
down and come back to it later. Enjoy reading the sections that
appeal to you, or the ones calling for more clarity or attention in
your life. Whether read from back to front, front to back, or in small
increments, the chapters are simple and easy to read, and will help
to unlock hidden joys and pleasures in your day.
Do not be afraid to live your life with clarity. The happiest
people are those who make authentic decisions based on their
higher wisdom and the light and love that flows from that source.
In my personal experience, I have been happiest when living from
this perspective. In each aspect of my life, whether parenting, my
marriage, my writing, or my friendships I strive to be authentic
as much as possible. This can mean breaking out of my comfort
zone, discussion of things that make me vulnerable and asking for
feedback from those around me so that I may improve.
In striving to be authentic, I’ve found that making small changes
over time to determine my personal truth has been integral in my
journey toward joy. I now regularly analyze my behavior and how
it is in agreement or discord with my world view, and my beliefs.
This practice has lead me on a path of clarity and a purpose-filled
life. This book is full of questions you can ask yourself, habits you
can create, and changes to your mindset, that will open your mind
and allow your divine self-wisdom to come through.
Allow me to take you on my journey from depression and anxiety,
panic attacks and medication, to peace and happiness. Allow me
to show you how I learned to Unleash Joy.

Ten easy to implement daily habits, designed to set the foundation for joy.

Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”

Is a man who needs to quit them.”

I set the $10 bill on the table and headed to the kitchen. It was only for a few moments because I had intended to retrieve my purse from the bedroom after stirring the pot on the stove. The phone rang, however, and I forgot the money. Just as I finished cooking supper, my son Zachery came into the kitchen and asked me how many Star Wars figures he could buy for $10. I smiled knowingly, and told him he could probably afford a very nice one if he had $10, and I asked him how he had earned the money. He admitted finding the money on the table but didn’t understand that it wasn’t his. He made a great argument for finder’s keepers, but in the end, I explained that his dream of a Star Wars figure would have to wait, and thanked him for admitting where he’d gotten the money. I then gave him a list of jobs he could do to earn the $10. He never did them.

You cannot change the circumstances,
the seasons, or the wind, but you can
change yourself.”

From birth, we are educated to believe that someone else is
responsible for our personal growth, our education, our financial
situation and even for our happiness. We’re encouraged to play
sports without keeping score (we’re all just having fun, and everyone
deserves to win), and since the 1980’s our parents have been
encouraged to work continually on improving our “self-esteem”
so we can be happy. The result of this parenting philosophy is that
we have generations of adults and young adults who feel entitled to
a great life without being willing to work for it. While our parents
had the lofty goals of giving their children better lives than they had,
the result was that many of us feel we deserve that life without any
effort on our part. While it’s one of the hardest changes to make
in our lives, you have to accept that your current predicament is a
result of your actions and mental attitude, and no one else’s.
I have wonderful memories of my childhood. We spent our
summers camping and rock-hounding, and our winters tromping in
Colorado snow and eating soup while watching The Cosby Show.
We were poor, but relatively happy. As a small child, I strove to
please my parents, but that became less relevant as I aged. There
was a transition period when I needed to learn that if I wanted
to accomplish something, it had to be for myself instead of for
my parents or anyone else. The phase of my life where I was in
that transition, was a difficult time for me. I remember my grades
dropping, friendships waning, and being lost and confused, not
knowing what I wanted or how to go about it even if I did.
Christmas was an especially difficult time of year for my father
when money would be tight. His kids (my brother and I) would have

Personal motivations & special thanks

Being a mother of daughters has motivated me to become a better woman. Every day, I look for ways I can inspire these little girls - ways to help them see how powerful they are, how clever, and how capable they can be. By helping other women to fulfill their dreams, I can ensure that my daughters will have an endless list of mentors, supporters, and fine examples of feminine strength and accomplishment. I am incredibly thankful to the four young women who have given me the impetus to share my gifts and to inspire and uplift every other woman that I meet. Thank you, my darlings.
