24/7 Vive

Print Friendly

‘The Joy of Living’—period. Those who embrace this 24/7 philosophy of life have a magnetism and charisma that attracts others, that makes others want to around them, and that is contagious—in essence, the 24/7 Vive makes others better! I believe this is a mindset that a person can learn, that a person can practice, and that a person can become!

The illustrious Wikipedia says…
“Joie de vivre (French pronunciation: [ʒwa də vivʁ], joy of living) is a French phrase often used in English to express a cheerful enjoyment of life; an exultation of spirit. Joie de vivre
“can be a joy of conversation, joy of eating, joy of anything one might do… And joie de vivre may be seen as a joy of everything, a comprehensive joy, a philosophy of life, a Weltanschauung. Robert’s Dictionnaire says joie is sentiment exaltant ressenti par toute la conscience, that is, involves one’s whole being.”
