Verb



"It's so hard to forget pain, 
but it's even harder to remember sweetness. 

We have no scar to show for happiness." 


Sometimes, things won't let you go. They snag your sweater as you walk by, and you're caught. You're stuck. Captured.

What caught me yesterday was this, a comment from Jamilla-

"...think of happiness as a verb, as something you can do, instead of something you're always trying to grasp, trying to hold in your hands."

Beautiful.
