Each of us is the creator of our thoughts and state of mind. When we look at people around us with relatively smooth and trouble-free lives, we find that some are happy, others unhappy. When we look at those who have had rough and challenging lives, again, some are happy, others are not. This means happiness has less to do with circumstances than with our attitude and approach to life.
Happiness is generated from within, and it comes with time and practice. Happiness, at its core, is about discovering meaning, and counting your blessings, not your woes. Relational activities — practices in which people actively reach out and engage with and serve others — offer a route to lasting happiness.
