Yesterday like any other evening they watched a movie. Apart. Around 8pm he always writes to her the name of the movie so that they can watch at the same time. They have been doing this for many years. After the movie they write to each other and share their thoughts on the movie.
Yesterday he picked a new movie “Hector and the search for happiness”, a light comedy of a psychiatrist and his journey in the search for happiness.
At midnight they asked each other what made them happy.
Happiness is defined by moments, short moments, long moments. An immediate well-being state of mind. There is nothing else to think about. For an instant, they are happy, just like that. Happiness is when they manage to be together. Time stays still when they are together. Only that counts. Happiness is when they forget about others, when the world outside does not exist for them anymore. Happiness is when they do not care about what could happen next. Only the “now” counts.
Happiness is looking at his eyes and seeing the light of the sun, and even the sun does not come out that day yet, it is still shiny enough. Happiness is smiling for nothing particular just because he is there.
Happiness is the idea of him. Only the idea.
Happiness is each silly emoticon he sends during the day to cheer her up.
Happiness is the good morning song he sends, the “how was your day” song he sends, the good night song he sends.
Happiness is how they live their feelings without worrying about the consequences or the future.
Happiness is how she can write about him for years and all the tiny little things concerning him could be like the universe for her.
Happiness is not only love or being loved, it is far beyond that feeling.
Happiness is particular, it is them and the way they keep on caring about their feelings.
Happiness is when there is no way out than to love each other the way they love each other. Even if they are apart and will be more than apart.
Happiness is knowing all the difficulties and not to avoid them.
Happiness is courage and in their case, certainly a great amount of craziness.
