But isn’t this attachment?

I think that you are conflating happiness with pleasure. One may always choose to be happy; it’s easy, just accept that the world is exactly as it should be and there’s nothing you can do about it

But if you think that the world is flawed and should be better in some way, then this is attachment, and the Buddha was quite firm in his views about attachment.
