“Happiness is a choice, not a result! Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy. No person will make you happy unless you decide to be happy. Your happiness will not come to you; it can only come from you!” – Ralph Marston.
What Marston said in his quote is true; happiness should come within one’s self. It shouldn’t be based on what is written on a piece of paper, what others say, or whether or not one is successful in life. It must be a way of life, something that everybody chooses to live by every single day, no matter the circumstances. As Patty always says, “Happiness shouldn’t be on your to-do list; it should be something you live every day.”
According to The World Happiness Report, Australia is among the “Top 12 happiest countries in the world.” Although this is excellent news, it also makes people wonder, “Why are other individuals unhappy?” It might be because they are lonely or frustrated, among other things. There are hundreds of reasons why people are unhappy but come to think of it; there are also many reasons people should be happy and grateful. “Don’t you want to be happy? Who wouldn’t, right?

Patty was born and raised in Colombia. When she was nine years old, she and her family moved to Japan for five years. At first, the event made the young Patty feel lost and overwhelmed, but eventually, the experience helped her become the resilient warrior she presently is. Patty recalled, “Our time in Japan truly shaped who I am today as it opened my eyes to the world and a different way of life. I remember when I was really struggling with my mental health as I was being bullied at school, so I voiced my negative feelings and thoughts, and I changed school with my parents’ support. Before starting at my new school, I made a decision saying to myself, ‘I choose to be happy!’ I didn’t know it at the time, but that small action changed my life, which is why I do what I do now. I truly believe that no matter your circumstances, you can create an opportunity to find happiness from within. We are all born choosers. I chose to be happy and not allow others to take that away from me ever again.”
After her time in Japan, Patty and her family moved back to Colombia, where she graduated from high school and started University. A year before finishing her degree, she moved to Canada however ended up staying for nine months before moving to Australia, where she finished her undergraduate degree. She fell in love with the Australian way and lifestyle and now, 21 years later, she lives in Brisbane with her husband and two beautiful daughters.
