Mine not.

Well, the good thing is you can work to change that.

Sure I can. Being successful in this endeavour is something different though.

I dunno. I think happiness can be found right where one is, provided one is not too picky. As an example I can spend my life yearning for... lots of money say... and being unsuccessful at getting it. I can live a long time like that. Or I can not care too much about money. I live the same life of not too much, but because I don't care about it, I'm happier. ETA: This is just me musing. I haven't the foggiest idea if it works or not Tongue

But that's what I mean. You can change your outlook and/or your circumstances.

Sometimes it's all about attitude. If you stay in the negative, you're right, nothing will ever change.

It doesn't work for me. I'm not entirely unhappy with my life but there is much that I would like to change, with some things being beyond my ability to control.

Yup. A prisoner can be happy.

I firmly believe life is what one makes of it. It takes effort and many expect it to be easy. Present company excluded of course.

Illness, death, these are but parts of a life. Early death is too. Nobody is immune, but we try to make the best of it.

The OP would never have considered his question had he or she not been alive to do so.

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

Sometimes it may be about attitude but I wager that I know enough about myself and my life to say that it isn't the case.

I don't buy such "positive" ideas - change your attitude and all gonna be allright. It won't be.
