People are always saying if only this or that would happen I could be happy. But the truth is the only way to be truly Happy is to learn to be Happy with what you do have. You could be rich and buy everything you want or get that promotion and you can still be Unhappy. Happiness is a "state of mind" and it doesn't matter what you have or don't have nor does it matter what country or state you live in. The only thing that matters is whether you choose to be Happy with who you are and what you do have.
