Aristotle had it nailed 2,500 years ago in his Nicomachean Ethics. Happiness is not just potential happiness, but rather, it will be over a lifetime. Do not worry if you are not -- yet -- happy. Do not worry if you were happy, but now are not. Do not worry if you've never been happy. Happiness can be yours. Make it active through your work; through your relationships. There are no exclusions to who can be (or become) happy.
