In actuality, happiness is about being connected. It's about finding a reason to have a purpose driven life. Being happy isn't about putting on a pretend smile and faking a positive attitude, it's about finding reasons for your positive thoughts. Becoming more joyful is not a quick fix, but it is possible.
