Media and Research: Topic: Joy

Most of the time on this blog, we’ve been posting about rather depressing topics. Here’s one that is quite the opposite… joy. Check out the videos and research links for thought. It’s so little talked about in our modern society, that we felt that we needed to define it for our readers. Here are some definitions from Webster’s Dictionary.

JOY, noun

The passion or emotion excited by the acquisition or expectation of good; that excitement of pleasurable feelings which is caused by success, good fortune, the gratification of desire or some good possessed, or by a rational prospect of possessing what we love or desire; gladness; exultation; exhilaration of spirits.

Joy
1. A delight of the mind, from the consideration of the present or assured approaching possession of a good.
2. Gayety; mirth; festivity.
3. Happiness; felicity.
4. A glorious and triumphant state.
5. The cause of joy or happiness.
6. A term of fondness; the cause of you.
JOY, verb intransitive To rejoice; to be glad; to exult.
JOY, verb transitive To give joy to; to congratulate; to entertain kindly.
1. To gladden; to exhilarate.
2. To enjoy; to have or possess with pleasure, or to have pleasure in the possession of. [Little used. See Enjoy.]
