Dont worry be happy! Put on a happy face! How many times have you heard these words from someone irritatingly happy just as you feel down in the dumps. Easy to say - but how to do it? If you are in a less than happy mood, those words sound irritating to say the least.
Happiness in my opinion is finding good things in your life - right here, right now. Realizing you have wonderful things all around you. So many people live their life stuck on the idea they will only be happy once they have achieved this, that and the other thing.
And when they do - they realize they aren´t happy after all. Because then they have new things to want.
There´s no way they can put on a happy face - for real. They haven´t learned to like the wanting-part - the journey itself. Their mind is set on the idea they cannot be happy unless they have achieved something (or everything). The haven´t learned to find happiness in their journey towards the wanted thing.
