The Many Faces of Happiness

How to make the best of the rest of your life

I've been feeling grumpy lately. Work pressures, home pressures. Who can hope and dream (as AARP encourages us to do) when we've got bills, bosses and bad backs to worry about? So I asked three of my favorite fun folks what makes them so content. Leading a charmed life can help, but my friend John — we worked together at Fortune magazine — was diagnosed with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) last May. Dianne puts her passion for healthy aging to work at Keiro Senior HealthCare in L.A. My sister-in-law Bonnie learned as a military wife to put her happy "game face" on — and keep it on. Whatever your situation, these three show that you can make the best of the rest of your life.
