Joy is a state of extreme happiness and elation that you experience when something pleasant happens. It might be some sort of an achievement or the joy after meeting someone after a long time. There are several reasons when you can experience joy. Jolly people are those who find joy and happiness in almost everything in their vicinity. They are the ultimate in optimists.
Moments of joy should be savoured and cherished because life is a strange and humdrum affair where even a few moments of happiness and joy should be gratefully acknowledged. In the words of Kahlil Gibran, “Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.”
