People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be. There is no secret ingredient to happiness. No special luck or chosen few who get to indulge in the sweet art of living happily; happiness is not random or arbitrary. Rather, happiness is an art.
There is simply one decision to be made to determine what kind of brush you paint life with and that is just how happy do you actually want to be?
You are only ever going to be as happy as you allow yourself to be; the only thing ever holding you back from happiness is yourself, not your circumstances. You are the artist of your mind’s thoughts, so paint life exactly how you want to live it and never settle for anything less.
