If we assessed our happiness level over many years and kept a journal of various events and feelings each day, it would be fascinating to plot our happiness on a graph. We would see spikes in happiness on some days and valleys on others.

We should not ask ourselves, “Am I happy?” That assumes that happiness is a finite destination and that we are either happy or not. A better question to ask is: “How can I become happier?”

How much ability do we have to increase our own happiness? Should we assume that our happiness is only controlled by our genetics and our environment?
