Sometimes life sucks.
But then happiness strikes.
And it looks like this hamster.
It's getting the chance to fly when walking wasn't an option.
It's making someone's day.
And it's Jennifer Lawrence's family after the Oscars.
And it's overcoming the impossible.
And it's seeing all your hard work pay off (she's the first in her family going to college!).
It's this Trekker getting the nerdy proposal he's always dreamed of.
It's seeing things from a different perspective.
It's making time for what's important.
It's about letting simple pleasures make you smile.
And getting handed lemons but still living life to the fullest.
Happiness is kissing a baby.
Or getting to hold the center of your universe for the first time.
