I am sad today, and it’s really hard to be happy. Although I am joyful, sadness seems to keep me down.

I might write more on this in a few days but for now, I’ll sit on my sadness and see what I can learn from it.

But to answer the question, yes we can through joy. Joy is not the absence of sadness nor the abundance of happiness. Joy is being ok, even if you are sad or happy knowing that this is part of the journey.

I am sad, but, I am joyful.

Be joyful!
