Here's a simple but profound truth: What you put your attention on tends to create your reality.
Would you prefer to put your attention on happiness rather than unhappiness, on joy rather than joylessness? You can do so by choosing to keep your attention on what feels good.
Life truly is like a buffet with many options. Think of it like watching cable TV with 1,000 channels. Even if you hate 990 of them, just click off those and stay on the ones you like.
When you are in alignment with who you truly are and what is authentic to you, whether you call this your psyche, your soul, or God, you're going to feel good. When you aren't, you feel bad.
It's really that simple.
If I feel good — if I'm centered and happy and joyful — I know that I am connected to my soul and its desire, and that I am as close to being authentic as I know how to be.
If I feel bad, I know that I am not attuned to what my soul/psyche prefers.
To say this in another way (because it is so important to understand): If, from a centered awareness, what I am doing or paying attention to feels good, then I am being true to myself.
As Abraham Lincoln used to say: "People are about as happy as they choose to be." I think Honest Abe hit the happiness nail on the head.
