JOY TO THE WISE

As we might probably know, joy is nothing more than the state of one being content and happy. A lot of people in the past, present and some even in the future will have tried to define and explain what they think joy really is. So far, the most reasonable one is the one that sees happiness as something that can only come from within a person and should not be sought for outside in the world.

Joy is defined by different people in different ways. Some find happiness in having a luxurious life while some find it in having loving people around them rather than money. True happiness lies within us. It is something that can be felt and cannot be explained in words. Even though this simple word has a lot of meaning hidden in it, many fail to understand the real one or feel the real happiness. Finding joy outer in this world is the main reason for some people’s fraustration. Nothing can buy you joy, either it is a favorite thing that you desire for or the person you love most or the career you build, unless you feel it within yourself.


A lot of us try to find joy at places or things where it is not. We associate and equate money with happiness. If at all there is joy in money then all of the rich people we have around us would never feel sad. What we have come to see is that even the rich amongst us are the ones that suffer depression, relationship problems, stress, fear and even anxiousness.

Many celebrities and successful people have committed suicide, this goes a long way to show that money or fame does not guarantee happiness. This does not mean that it is a bad thing to be rich and go after money. When you have money, you can afford many things that can make you and those around you very happy.

There is a saying that explains that one can only get true joy when one comes to the realization that only one can make himself/herself happy. This saying and its meaning is always hammered on in at different places but we still refuse to fully understand it and put it into good use. It is very important that we understand that happiness is nothing more than the state of a person’s mind. Joy cannot come from all the physical things we see around us. Only our positive emotions that we get through our good thoughts and actions have the ability to bring true joy in our life. Therefore, it is very important that we work on having only positive thoughts and this can be achieved when we see life in a positive light.

Joy is an internal feeling that helps us to stay fit both mentally and physically. Factors that influence joyfulness are those that contribute to emotional and physical wellbeing. It helps us in lowering our stress and keeping us away from various health issues. It is an important emotion that influences how we live and feel on a daily basis. People have the liberty to choose happiness because we are not bound by any circumstances for life. The reasons of joy may be different for different person. You just need to find out what actually makes you happy. If you want real happiness in life then, you need to understand that only you can make yourself happy.

Every individual finds joy in their own because they know what makes them happy and what doesn’t. It most certainly is found – and not just momentary pleasure, but genuine, long-lasting happiness, which is not something that comes to a person randomly. In fact, most people have to work very hard for a very long time to finally find joy in their life and to create the best possible version of them. Moreover, it is something that any person can build on its own.
