Happiness As Acting From Our Best Self

Notice how there is a curious relationship between your moments of happiness and moments of being your best self. Thinking about happiness as being our best self empowers us into a happiness as something we do rather than as something that happens to us. 

We each define our best self. This definition can be informed by exprience and feedback but ultimately it's ours to decide. It can be presence, focus, organization, creativity. Whatever it is, it makes happiness more possible.
