I used to ask myself, "Why are some people always happy?" "Why can't I become a "happiness junkie?" I wondered, "Are happy people just too silly to realize that they should be miserable?" Isn't it strange? Everyone in this beautiful world wants happiness, but where do we learn or study about it?huh.. what do you think about happiness?

A lot of it is based on early childhood experiences and what type of biochemical genetic makeup you inherit. Much of our personality is formed during our early childhood experiences. Not that we can't train or reprogram ourselves for ourselves for happiness if we really want to. The bookstores are loaded with self-help and inspirational book that can chip away at our negativity and negative programming. One of my favorites is: The Handbook to Higher Conciousness by Ken Keyes Jr. and Your Roadmap to Lifelong Happiness by Ken Keyes Jr. Probably only two of five books in my life that I ever went back and reread cover to cover.
