The word Joy is a noun.  According to Webster’s dictionary Joy is defined as the emotion evoked by well-being, success, or good fortune or by the prospect of possessing what one desires; the expression or exhibition of such emotion; a state of happiness or felicity; and a source or cause of delight.

Think about that for a moment.  Joy is a noun.  It is an emotion.  It is an expression of the emotion joy.  It is a state of happiness.  It is a source or cause of delight.  Joy is.  Joy can be an expression and a state of being.  Joy can inspire.  Pretty amazing and powerful word.  Just think of all that these three letters JOY can do!

Instead of listing out my goals or resolutions for the New Year I have this wish…. I wish you Joy.  I wish that you have, be and experience Joy in the full definition of the word.  May you have peace.  And may you have JOY!!!!

    When someone rarely asks me “are you happy?” I always explain that I’ve never expected to be happy every day, but that I find that I have a lot of Joy in my life and that seems more important. Maybe because I find it easier to create joy on my own? It’s never dependent on others. Here’s to a wonderful, bright 2018 my friend.
