Joyfulness is the characteristic of feeling and expressing deep happiness and enthusiasm. As an attitude of the spirit, it can permeate even the most sorrowful situation. When we open ourselves to joy, we let in light and laughter, strength and grace.
Joy celebrates beauty and goodness, inviting us to dance without demanding or expecting anything. Sometimes joy is quiet and hidden, and sometimes it burts out in song and movement or in the act of creation.
Joy is a cup overflowing that generously shares itself with all who are near. When we are joyful, we are exposed but unafraid, unselfconsciously offering the gifts of energy, hope, and inspiration.
