Life seems meaningless where there is no happiness, indeed everyone wants to be happy, but the question is how do you go about achieving that.

Happiness can be found in little things and most uncommon places, so all you need to do is to follow your heart and you will find happiness. Also one of the most common places people find happiness is in the arms of their loved ones, there is a feeling of happiness when you love someone and they love you back. Happiness puts people in a positive mood, and people tend to relate more to happy people. Happiness is a choice, so you can choose to remain happy against all odds.
