Happiness is when my crush smses me.
Happiness is when I pretend I am a star, and I take my pillow and use it as a guitar, and sing my lungs out while Maroon 5's Songs About Jane CD blasts in the background.
Happiness is when my father blurts, "Love you" before hastily putting down the phone.
Happiness is when my sister looks at me and there is a perfect and unspoken understanding and trust between us.
There is too much pain in this world that we live in. Any strand of happiness left should be instantly grabbed and cherished. Thankfully, they are found in the simplest of things.
