Turning the idea of happiness on its head had suddenly made me very happy.
What does "its" refer to? Does it mean "happiness's"?
The context is:
Come On, Get Happy
“Happiness is a fatality,” wrote the poet Rimbaud. I remember being somewhat puzzled when I first read that line, and then feeling a sense of ease and liberation wash over me. Turning the idea of happiness on its head had suddenly made me very happy.
I would guess that happiness has ruined many a life since it was invented, which may not have been so long ago.
