How do you take your happiness?

We go for months without any glimpse of happiness, and we are okay with that, we get used to that, we adapt to that and in fact that comfort is familiar and safe. Yet the second we taste that happiness and the flow of emotions and warmth that touches us, patience is no longer an option and we go out of our mind and body to try to get  that moment of happiness back and persist on it lasting for much longer than one moment, today, tomorrow and as far as our temporal imagination can take us.

So what is happiness? What does happiness really mean or really entail. Is it a hug, is it the unexpected gift, a kiss, a gaze into someone else's eyes? That moment when everything felt so beautiful and just right? A moment you did not deem possible and certainly not with that person who you didn't know a week ago or that last person you thought you will have a moment with.

Is happiness a checklist imposed by society? Everyone seems to think so, so my question is: how do you take your happiness?

Happiness only exists in a moment and then shortly after that, the memory of it; which you keep trying to recreate for the rest of your life.

And sometimes you don't want to go to sleep because it will only take you further from the happy moment you had on the day.

So tell me, how do you take your happiness?
