It is easy for a child to be joyful, examining his happiness. It is, for many, a reflex. To be happy is to feel useful, to achieve a human goal. It is to be rewarded after an effort, especially flourishing. To be joyful is to enjoy happiness. For children, therefore, the joy is ended happily, unlike for adults. Indeed, happiness lasts the time necessary for its duration. The flame of a child’s joy will be found in adulthood. This is how a child’s happiness will be found in adults. The joy of the child fuses with happiness, because he does not distinguish the difference between joy and happiness.
After a joy, try to write a sketch or a funny story.
