Yes! You are about as happy and content as you make up your mind to be, and if you want to see good things, you look for them and you will find them.
Sometimes it is hard to find, but it is usually there.
When you are a realist, you see it all. Then you process and analyze. I think conditioning decides what and how you see things. We do need need to look for the good, no matter what. It is there.
Sometimes you have be in the middle of bad to see good. Can be tricky.
There is beauty everywhere, you just have to notice it! :)
