With time, we may come to experience an open, spacious quality in our awareness that easily holds whatever is arising in the domain of mind or body … and learn to rest in that awareness itself.

“What we frequently think about and dwell upon becomes the shape of our mind. The shape of our mind shapes our world of experience.” — The Buddha

It is the ability to see wonder, surprise and possibility in each experience and each encounter that is a core aspect of joy.

A healthly perspective really is the foundation of joy and happiness, because the way we see the world is the way we experience the world.
