Remember, everything, all that we see, touch, create, it's all part of the picture, and as you know reality itself is more of a projection by the mind that it is a separate thing.
Take responsibility for literally putting joy and happiness in place, around you, and anything that gives you the least joy and happiness, for which you are grateful, make that your focus and starting point, and re-build on that new fresh start.
You can obviously appreciate it when you see it - therefore it's available to you. What gives you joy..? What makes you happy? And how many moments are in a single day.....? In no time flat, in other words, you could create a whole new world around you - and don't forget to enroll others in the new happy, joyful self and life you are creating, and then go ahead and create it, and have yourself occur to others in that new way.
