Joy is defined as a feeling a great pleasure and happiness. Joy can be found in the darkest of times if you look hard enough. Sometimes people find joy in simple things such as a movie, a song, a book or even commercials. Then there are times of what I like to call pure joy, times like the birth of a child, a wedding, a day of adoption, or a big promotion at work. A high like that is hard to imagine coming down from but eventually what goes up must come down. When you have experienced joy you then begin to rejoice. The definition of rejoice is: to feel or show that you are very happy about something. Rejoicing can be shown in a smile, dancing, laughter and even sometimes tears. I had the pleasure of experiencing joy and witnessing people rejoice! It was a simple act that put it in motion, the simple act of an innocent child at play…pretending to be grown up in the midst of all the grown ups pretending to be kids…
Joy was found by many walking down a random aisle at Walmart. Open your eyes to the world around you and you just may find yourself rejoicing over the joy that you found in a peculiar place! Allow yourself to stay on top of the joy mountain today!
