Benefit of joy

Joy is a choice. Choose it often.

Joy is not a rejection of reality. Joy is at once an acceptance of reality and an improvement upon it.

Joy does not demand a cause. Joy of its own making and for its own sake is just as beneficial as any other joy.

Joy enables you to feel your purpose. That’s a useful and powerful thing to do.

Joy adds to life without asking anything in return. Accept the offer and pass it on.

Every day, every undertaking, every situation goes better when there’s real joy in it. Give life the benefit of all the joy with which you can choose to live.
