The Difference Between Happiness and Joy

28-03-13



I can remember watching my kids grow up, and naively praying for their happiness. Sure, I still pray for their happiness, but I know happiness is the wrong goal. Happiness and joy are not one in the same-happiness comes and goes-it's fleeting at best, it's most often deceptive, and at worst the pursuit of happiness above all else can lead to ruin. Joy however is something that can be found in any circumstance or setting. It's the joyful people who stand out to me. They are the lemonade makers- the ones who see the best in people, not the worst. Regardless of the hand they're dealt, they don't complain or become bitter. They remain joyful and continue pushing forward in pursuit of their dream.
