Interesting thing about Happiness, no one can say for certain what it is. Philosophers, scholars, doctors, theologians, scientist–all of these have tried to give a definition.

The one thing we do know, is whether we are happy or whether we are not. Abraham Lincoln, our 16th President said, “Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

What a true statement. Don’t believe me? Stand in front of your mirror. Put a big smile on your face and tell me how you look and how you feel. Now, put a frown on your face. How do you look and how do you feel?

I guess you have the answer that confirms what Abraham Lincoln said.
