Happiness or Joy?
"The fact is always obvious much too late, but the most singular difference between happiness and joy is that happiness is a solid and joy a liquid."
~ J.D. Salinger, the author of Catcher in the Rye
Joy lasts, it sustains.
It is a peace that does not leave us even when things get hard.
Happiness is a momentary feeling and depends on external factors.
Joy is not even extreme happiness.
In its truest expression, joy transforms difficult times.
Joy brings meaning to life.
Joy brings life to life.
I wish you joy today!
