‘I just want to be happy; is that too much to ask?’ Sound familiar? We’ve all at least thought it, and often heard those around us say it. Happiness is illusive. The more we chase it, the more difficult it seems to attain it. It seems to find those who focus less on trying to find it and focus more on helping others. Someone wrote that happiness is a choice. Another wrote that it is an inside job. Happiness, therefore, may not depend on our circumstances or situations, but more on how we choose to respond to our circumstances.
