Joy is the outcome of pleasure, success, and good fortune. Good things can happen to you that make you happy and still you may not be joyful.
Joy goes beyond the emotion of happiness to a state of being: Living in joy. Is this starting to sound vaguely spiritual? It should.
Joy is like water flowing. It never stops. It's up to you to cup your hand and put it to your mouth and taste it.
