Something to think about: Joy to the World

By From page A4 | February 21, 2014

Joy has been described as an ephemeral feeling — fleeting — not to be depended on. Not as solid as anger or as heavy as depression, it occurs occasionally, sometimes unexpectedly, unlike more chronic feelings of anxiety or boredom. In contrast to depression or anger, which often come unbidden and stay up in your business until you dismiss them or they destroy you, joy is already here, waiting to be noticed. Often, we miss it because we’re not used to looking for joy or because we expect a giant, in-your-face emotion. Joy can be quiet and small, but it is always waiting for discovery.
