We all have seasons in our life that include the ebb and flow of joy and sorrow. Most can recall a time when grief was overwhelming for someone else. But when it hits us directly in the face, this emotion will reach far beyond our bounds. It cannot be contained, but explodes through tears, and gut-wrenching physical assault. It can’t be tamed, or laid aside; but must be faced without transition, or resolution.
On the other hand, joy can also be as explosive, but easier to express; and without reservation. Smiles, twinkling eyes, and witty words are ways to show the joy we feel deep inside. It’s easily transferable to others who see our reaction to the pleasures in life, and can become one’s own noticeable personality trait. Friendliness and joyousness are all part of this emotion, and will capture the heart of others by simply allowing the good things in life to spring forth.
Life includes joy and sorrow, and neither can be excluded, or ignored.
It’s all a part of who we are.
