Those who commit to joviality tend to enjoy happier lives. They aren’t necessarily jokesters or pranksters, nor are they unable to take things seriously when they need to.
What separates the jovial from the rest is an intuitive ability to turn dull moments into joyous ones.
The stakes are rarely so high that we can’t enjoy a laugh. The jovial amongst us are commuted to finding that laugh, and sharing it.
If only we could all commit to joy; we might find less bitterness between us all.
