What is Joy?
Answer: an internal feeling you cultivate yourself, some people are more often joyful, and some or not, lucky their brain chemistry is helpful to them to cultivate joy out of nothing or something, we often see these kinds of people and feel envious of them, however, we do experience joy but not show it more often than those joyful people, so don’t worry, if you are reading this with a laughing smile, you are joyful.
