The key to having a happy life, is to first choose to be happy.
I believe that anything we want is actually because we think that having it will bring us happiness.
So, why make it so complicated? Why not choose to be happy first?
Just imagine how lovely your day can be if you decide that you are going to be happy from the time that you wake up.
It all comes down to you, and how you choose to see the world. Choose to see it through the eyes of someone living a happy life.
