Happiness is fine, but you can’t depend on it. It’s cool, but it comes and goes. The great challenge of life is to constantly, at every turn, choose joy, especially when we’re not happy.
Happiness always fades away. It changes as circumstances change. Sometimes the wind blows favorably, and other times it blows contrary. Happiness is as dependent on circumstances as a sailboat is to the wind.
Joy, however, is the real deal. Whether there is wind, no wind—or even a fierce storm. And here’s the awesome thing—we can experience joy every day. So just how do we tap into the power of joy in real-time?
Joy is triggered when we make the choice to rejoice.
