What happiness is to me

Do you know those moments when the world moves so slowly that you can feel your bones shifting, your mind tumbling? When you think that no matter what happens to you in the future, you will remember every last detail of that one minute forever?”  Those few moments where everything just feels right is what happiness is to me.

Happiness is sitting with your best friend in your backyard at 2 a.m. and having a deep conversation about life. Happiness is when all your relatives come together to celebrate an auspicious occasion. Happiness is seeing your dog run towards you as you open the door. Happiness is drinking warm coffee and reading a good book on a cold, rainy day. Happiness is ordering pizza on a Tuesday night. Happiness is meeting your middle school best friend and talking like you used to 10 years ago. Happiness is jamming to your favourite song as it plays on the radio.

Happiness is staying simple but being the best person you can be. Being loved is happiness. The warm and inviting smile you see on someone’s face after helping them is pure bliss. Happiness is a word you can’t explain, but the feeling makes you heart do a certain jump that makes you smile endlessly.

If you ask me, the best memories are spontaneously created, they are unplanned moments that get imprinted in our heart as a memory. We remember these memories for the rest of our lives and they act as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone.

So enjoy life and live in the moment.
