A Joyful New Year

I’m breaking with tradition: I’m wishing you a Joyful New Year, rather than a Happy New Year. Why?

I read somewhere that happiness is dependent upon circumstances, but joy is not. Joy can be found in less-than-good situations, and joy is deeper and richer than happiness.

I want to make this a year in which I emphasize joy, instead of happiness.

(Yes, I’m aware I’m a day late posting this–actually two days late, for those living on the other side of the Date Line. A cold ambushed me several days ago, and yesterday I was feeling its effects, what with an energy level that went up, and then down. Still, I’m feeling much better than I could be, and for that, I’m grateful.)

Have a Joyful New Year!
