Yours is the deep joy that comes from contemplation and consciousness. Life comes with struggles, but you have learned to laugh at the failures and embrace the wins, all while striving for peace in your heart and in the world. Which is nice. Gunga galunga, friend, you are the portrait of serene happiness.

You’re a maniac, maniac, on the floor—and the people love it. Though there’s never been anything electric about your slide, your unashamed joy on the hardwood encourages everyone to join in. After all, they can’t look any worse than you—though they likely won’t be smiling quite as wide, either.

Yours is the warm joy that’s found in the comforting embrace of your favorite blanket. While there may be people to see or parties to go to, you have a dream date with the couch and a Law and Order marathon. What could be so important that you’d want to change out of your pajamas for? Besides, you did something yesterday.

Yours is the glowing joy of the spotlight. If there’s a celebration, you can be found smack dab in the middle of it. So the holidays were made for you. Whether you’re decorating the tree, flipping latkes, or regaling friends with a story, you MAKE the party. Turn up the music, people. The good times have arrived.

With your unabashed optimism, you radiate the joy of infinite possibility. So what if 2017 was a tough year? You’re not gonna let anything get you down and you’ll lift a few people up while you’re at it. You laugh at obstacles, soaring and smiling through the rarefied air of happiness. Shine on, you crazy diamond.

You practically bounce off the walls with joy. Whether you’re tirelessly tossing a Frisbee or bounding around on a good hike, you’re everyone’s best friend. Sometimes your energetic personality can get you in trouble, but with your exuberance and unconditional love for life, we all know you’re a good boy or girl.

Share your joy and GMMB will add a dollar on your behalf to our holiday donation. Help us make a big difference for these seven amazing organizations.
