Happiness is not meant to be a destination, but our purpose. It is not something that is attained, it is either achieved by grace or by choice. It is a state of being that can be cultivated through practice. This practice is our duty to ourselves. It is being called "Blissipline".
By repeatedly training yourself to be grateful for your circumstances, you strengthen your joy skills. Recalling how far you've come, remaining cognizant of how blessed you are, and maintaining an eager zeal for where you are going, will tap you into a magnitude of power known only to the blissiplined.
Engage in joy regularly. Enhance your experience by inventorying your beliefs, shedding those that limit you, and building on those that empower you. Intensify the effects by establishing routines that connect your spirit with the Spirit of the Universe.
