Final Thoughts

Happiness refers to the good life. So what makes your life good is your real and true happiness. It can be your family, friends, pets, jobs, cars, house, anything. As long as it makes you smile every time you wake up in the morning and falls asleep at night is more than enough reason for you to fight every battle to survive and live in this world.

So if it’s hard for you to find your happiness, then try to internalize everything you have. Appreciate what you have and accept what you don’t have, because real happiness can be found with contentment in your heart.
