How can I find happiness?

If only

Happiness isn't about what happens to us -
it's about how we perceive what happens to us.
It's the knack of finding a positive for every negative,
and viewing a setback as a challenge.
If we can just stop wishing for what we don't have,
and start enjoying what we do have, our lives
can be richer; more fulfilled - and happier.
The time to be happy is now
