Julian Baker said in OTH’s s08e08, “I feel like people get lost when they think of happiness is a destination. Someday we will be happy, we’ll get that car, or that job, or that person in our lives that would fix everything. But happiness is a mood, it’s a condition, not a destination. It’s like being tired or hungry, it’s not permanent. It comes and goes and that’s okay. and if people thought that way then maybe people would find happiness more often.”
Happiness is buying ingredients for my spaghetti.
Happiness is cooking it for the first time (well, the one with meat).
Happiness is cooking it for the one you love.
Happiness is seeing the one I love eat it.
Happiness is seeing the one I love seat at our sofa and say “busog!”
Happiness is being with the one I love even with just a short span of time.
We couldn’t control what will happen to us, problems will come and go our way, and it’s up to us how will we react to them. Brooke Davis asked Julian, “You think it’s okay to be a little miserable every now and then, even if you have all the great things in your life?”, it is but we shouldn’t dwell on that. We have a full life ahead of us. It is always up to us, our choice, to be happy – in little things, in big things in our life.
Happiness is never lost if you just know where to look for it. It’s always in your heart, where love, hope and trust lives.
