    Yep, 100 % agree. That we choose to be happy. That choice is easier in some circumstances and very hard in others, but alway a choice.

    I would add that it is a choice that requires repetition, which over time becomes a learned behavior / pattern. While there always is a genetic component, choice ultimately determines the patterns of your days and by extension, your life.

    For clarity, I was thinking of the choice to be happy in the moment rather than just an accumulative effect of good choices leading to happiness.

    Understood, and I completely agree with you in that, especially initially, happiness in the moment's "choice" can be very difficult depending on circumstances. What I was referring to was the accumulation of all of those daily little choices creating an emotional "muscle memory" type behavior. We humans if nothing else, are creatures of habit lol.
