Actually, science (not a popular topic on this site) says you can, indeed, "force" happiness. A quick search on "Google Scholar" results in plenty of research that connects "forced" smiling to the release of endorphins (the "happiness" hormone). Our bodies are truly an awesome example of God's wonder. ((https://scholar.google.com/scholar?hl=en&as_sdt=0%2C31&q=smiling+causes+happiness&btnG=))

Joy is important but we can't force it. We must also remember Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time joy yes but a time for sadness. A time to be calm yes but a time to be angry. A time fore peace yes but a time for war.
