5 Ways To Double The Joy In Your Life

October 19, 2020


Someone once said, "Shared joy is double joy, and shared sorrow is half sorrow."  And I'm sure you've found it to be true if you've ever shared either of those emotions. But why is it true? One reason might be that we were made to function best as part of a community. Going it alone is like going without food; we can do it for a while, but not forever. It's not a weakness, it's a source of strength. The simple helps this week will make us stronger and better together, because shared joy is double joy.
