There are times when life doesn’t seem to be cooperating or helping you be happy. You may run into people or experience events that make things challenging in ways you might not have even imagined. The key to being happy in life is to make things easier by managing your thoughts and behaviors. Any situation can be less difficult if you consciously decide to focus on what you can do rather than the things that are out of your control. Think and behave in positive ways and your life will seem less difficult.
