In this video, I am live from the beaches of Tel Aviv, Israel. It has been an amazing trip. It has been beyond. The word of the day is joy. I am here with a big group of family and friends and we are laughing and smiling and happy. We are here for a special event; tonight is the wedding.

Today’s quote is, “Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to realize how good things really are.”

If you are the type of person who always sees things negatively or always believes that the glass is half full, you might not be able to experience that joy. Happiness is part of who we are. Joy is the feeling and it feels so good.

So if you are not experiencing joy, go out there, do things differently and maybe you too will experience joy.

There is a difference, however, between joy and fun. Joy is to fun what the deep sea is to a puddle. There is a big difference. Joy is a feeling inside that can hardly be contained.

Yesterday we talked about curiosity. Imagine if you are curious and you switch things up in your life. It can lead to joy.

When you are joyful and reflect positivity to those around you, people will want to be with you.
