Happiness is in people enjoying food at restaurants and in people who don’t have enough to eat. It’s in the ones that have a house and in the ones that are just getting by in their broken down apartment. That’s because happiness doesn’t come in the form of things, but in the form of emotional satisfaction and in how you see life.

In this life, I hope we stop second guessing. When we see someone we have feelings for, we find the words—the imperfect, honest words—and let them spill out of our mouths. When we feel at home in someone’s arms, we share that with them, vulnerability so raw it hurts.
