Studies show that the secret of happiness is 48% genetics, 40% life events, and 12% choices. Of the 12% (from choices), the things that make the most impact are family, faith, community, and work. What does this mean for you in terms of finding Mr. (or Mrs. ) Right? If you’re “naturally” an unhappy person, your choices (which may lead to your major life events) can make all the difference in terms of your happiness. Food for thought.
