How can I find happiness?
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.

and start enjoying what we do have, our lives
can be richer; more fulfilled - and happier.
