What is happiness?
Can you always be happy?
Happiness seems to come easily for some and is in short supply for others. It is a constantly changing and yet frustratingly temporary emotion. Would it surprise you that a recent poll reported that only one-third of Americans call themselves happy? Unfortunately, there’s no magic pill you can take daily to make yourself happy. People who are happy must work at being happy. Happiness is a required mindset change; a happy person’s life is not full of singing cartoon birds or perfect hair. Happiness comes from how a person chooses to respond to the world around them, the good and the bad. Happy people focus more on the positive, and that’s quite a powerful mindset when the world is perpetually a glass half full.
