Yes You SHOULD be feeling joy and fufillment when you are walking out who God made you to be.
I grew up in a church that focused SO much on shame and not being prideful, that it wasn't ever okay to even like yourself or think anything about yourself was good.
I carried this into adulthood and am finally now breaking free of this toxic belief that God doesn't want you to live a joyful life.
Joy and happiness are two very different things. Happiness is a fleeting emotion, joy is a state of being.
When you are doing what God MADE you for, it should feel good. It should satisfy your soul. It is like you have the lock and God is the key that unleashes your purpose, your joy, your calling AND if you are doing it for His glory, you shouldn't be feeling bad about it
