I recently read an article about all things related to joy. The Merriam Webster Dictionary defines joy as an emotion evoked by well-being, success, or good fortune; delight. With spring just around the corner, the very thought of being outside in the warm sunshine brings me great joy! How about you? How do you define joy in your life? Apple CEO Tim Cook offers this advice: “Let your joy be in your journey - not in some distant goal.”
