Happiness is just an emotion not a way of being. Happiness is something you have to work for most of the time. so people who are happy often have pursued happiness but that was most likely not their goal. Living a healthy fulfilling life is sort of the pursuit of happiness since it usually leads to a lot of happiness. Therefore only those who pursue it regardless if that was there original intention (for example just taking care of themselves) will be happy.
@Ziah_99 people who are trying to make others happy are the most happiest people. It automatically brings a smile on our face but we often expect something in an exchange which takes away the spirit. Our happiness follows from others, provided we don't mess it up😆

@sarah_the_magpie This is a great way of looking at it. I think whether or not my kid-self would be impressed by my present-day-self would be offset by my telling him about the Internet, hundreds of TV channels compared to the four we had in the 80's, PS4, 3D films, all the £ I've earned (he wouldn't care whether I had a sell-out job or not). He didn't have a sophisticated enough mind to worry about the things I do, like the state of the economy, the state of the NHS, etc. The little jerk.
