Is happiness a choice? This tweet makes the answer seem like a no-brainer.

The reality is that happiness sometimes is a choice. For example, you might focus on the feel-good elements of news reports like the one below.

Whatever you choose to focus on, reality catches up. The kids in the tweeted photo and the news report will grow up to find that pure sources of happiness are rare. They need to learn to create moments of their own and to build resilience.

They might eventually learn that satisfaction is more reachable and realistic. If your best is to come in third in a race, you might not be happy but you can be satisfied with your effort. If the world tells you that your “twin sister” is not, you can be satisfied that she is your best friend.
