Happiness is created through your thoughts, and feelings. A skilful master knows the tricks to cleverly manoeuvre them. He directs them in such a way that he feels happy, and positive all the time. He is the master of his disposition. He rules his life, life does not rule him.
Often people undergo great stress. They are unable to manage their circumstances. They blame them. But the fact is that each of us has to deal with difficult circumstances every now and then. We are all being tested. Those who pass this test have ensured the victory of disposition over circumstances. Their soul sings the joy of happiness.
Happiness depends on disposition, not circumstances.
