So you want to learn how to be happy, but have no idea where to start. The good thing is, you can learn how to be happy and be more fulfilled in everything you do. You must first keep in mind that happiness in life is like a smorgasbord. If 100 people went to a smorgasbord and each put food on their plate in the quantity and mix that each felt would be most pleasing to him, every plate would be different. Even a husband and wife would go up to the smorgasbord and come back with plates that looked completely different.
