You should say

Mirthy and sanguine people are the ones people like to be around. Positivity and jovial vibes tend to suffuse the ambiance with profound happiness and the people who radiate them are everyone’s favorite. One such family which is a perfect example of what cheerful people look like is the one that lives in my neighborhood, the Josephs. The Josephs and our family have been neighbors for the last few years now and ever since they came, they have been delightful.
They have never been seen getting melancholic over any issue. They have an optimistic perspective on life and I pray they stay this way for all the years to come. Not that they never faced an issue or a loss but it’s in the way they see things. There is an adage ‘It’s not the problems that trouble us but getting hopeless is what the main culprit is’. Well, The Josephs live up to this and have a beam of smile and ray of hope gleaming in their every pursuit.
I try to ape their behavior when I get in a fix and always envision how Josephs would react if they were in that situation. Truly, I am glad they came to live in my neighborhood to enliven and cheer me up in all trying circumstances.
Eg.: I was mirthy to hear about your visit.
Eg.: One must always be sanguine in life.
Eg.: Her jovial approach makes her a strong woman.
Eg.: The class was suffused with students’ laughter.
Eg.: They all were melancholic due to the huge loss.
