Happiness at Hand

Happiness depends more on the inward disposition of mind than on outward circumstances. 
Benjamin Franklin

In the movie classic, The Four Seasons, one of the characters going through his midlife talks about his personal happiness.  In the middle of his life, he claims to have found the fleeting intangible.  During the middle of his discourse, his friend (played by Alan Alda) challenges his notion of happiness.  Happiness he says is like a wave and sometimes you are in a deep trough.

Most people will agree that happiness is a state of mind defined more by how we think and react to external circumstances.  If you truly want to be happy then decide to be happy.  Think about how you want to be.  Choose how you wish to react to the world around you.

Yes you might have genetics and chemistry working against you, but you can make choices that can lead you to happiness.  Think about what makes you happy, chase your dreams, live your life, and become a proactive participant.  Don't just sit there, do something.
