Happiness where you are

Is being happy just a once-in-a-while occurrence — something we have little control over? Do circumstances really dictate happiness?

Are you happy? If you can answer "yes," congratulations! The plethora of articles in magazines and the many books on this subject indicate that this is a major concern. People everywhere seem to be searching for happiness. And apparently it is eluding most of them.

Why aren't people happy? What are we looking for? We hear, "I'll be happy when we have children ... when the children are out of the house ... when we have a house ... when I get into school ... when I'm out of school ... when I find work ... when I don't have to work." The list is endless and varied. For some, happiness was in the past. For others, it's in the future. But there is one common factor. It never seems to be now!
