Story When you're a kid, happiness seems to bubble out of you at all times; a running sprinkler was a reason to smile or a soft blanket brought so much comfort with its warmth. Happiness really did live in our hearts. I believe that it always stays there, it may just be more difficult to bring out as we grow older. Recently, I’ve chosen to make that joy more instinctive. By training myself to push my feelings towards positivity, I found less frustration in daily tasks that used to drag me down. When I spent three hours assembling two simple chairs, I really did get dragged down by sitting on the seat and falling straight through it. I hit the ground hard but I could only laugh at how silly it felt.
