True happiness is something we can obtain, how we go about that just depends on each person. My idea for true happiness is just have a nice place to live and a loving husband. Others might be more complex, or even more simple. Each person just has to recognize what they want and drive towards getting it.
All thoughts of the mind are the easiest to overcome. Happiness is a choice, or a decision that one makes each day. Happiness may be influenced by environment, but overall is only up to the individual. For this a person could have everything they want and be miserable and one could lack what they need and be happy.
