You know what happiness is?

Happiness could be listening to loud music that makes your heart beat wildly and your face smile till it's too painful to smile for any longer.

Happiness might be miraculous love. The kind of love that makes you wonder how you were happy before they came along.

Happiness...maybe it's the warmth from the sun as it shines on your face, letting you know just how very much alive you are.

No. Happiness is just one thing, if we're being honest.

The one thing that Happiness is, without a doubt, is faith in a better tomorrow. The belief that no matter what happens, as long as you're still walking along to the drum that beats right there in your chest, things are gonna be just fine.

So many people lose that beat. Everybody gets thrown off of it every once in a while.

The brave ones in this life are the ones that find that beat again, after realizing that there's pain for the ones that keep in time. Sorrow from abandoning those that risk that precious tempo. Agony over seeing loved ones lose it. Heartbreak from those that would have you lose it to help themselves feel less guilt over their loss. 

Happiness? I refuse to lose it. Because this world has way too many sad people already.

Even when the music doesn't play, the loved ones are no longer a part of your life, and the sun doesn't shine anymore.

Keep your head up, and make your beat the most unique thing on earth. Make it beautiful. Make it special.

Make it yours.

And own it.
