It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 2, Page 12, Book 13
Happiness starts with one word, one joke, one hug, one text, one song and stops in one mistake.
in high spirits; satisfied
favored by luck or fortune
We really don't need to wait around for happiness to find us. We can be happy every day if we want to be. It appears that the bulk of what determines happiness is due to personality, thoughts and behaviors that can be changed.
An article I read said that people who are happy seem to intuitively know that their happiness is the sum of their life choices, and their lives are built on the following pillars:
Devoting time to family and friends
Appreciating what they have
Maintaining an optimistic outlook
Feeling a sense of purpose
Living in the moment
We cannot all be happy all the time, but remember it is you and not other people or circumstances that control your happiness.
A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes.
