The Secret of Joy

Reb Shlomo Carlebach, zt"l taught us a secret -

the secret of joy

If you want to be b'Simcha (joyous) give everyone blessings with all your heart. And even if at first this seems awkward, keep on doing it until you truly find yourself in that holy space of blessing - and before you even know it you will be b'simcha, you are joyous!

Don't forget we are also 'kohanim' as it says, "And you shall be into Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation." [Shemos 19]
