Happiness is a decision

Leave a comment

How do we define happiness? Is happiness a result of the events that occur in our lives? Is happiness something that we manage or control?

Growing up and for a long time thereafter, I assumed that I experienced happiness when good events occurred in my life. This, of course, implies that my happiness was dependent upon things beyond my control. As I have matured, my understanding of happiness has changed … for the better. I now believe that happiness is a decision. In other words, I can choose to be happy or not. I believe that this decision is closely tied to one’s attitude and outlook on life.

“Happiness is a decision.”

Michael J. Fox

Have a pleasant week.
