Happiness Is A Choice

I know it's not the first time this has happened, but I'm just a guy that bought a key for the girl he likes. 

We shared several deep conversations a few weeks ago, and the pain and sadness she described to me really caught in my chest; I had to do something, anything I could, to bring happiness into her life. I made her laugh almost every day after that, but it didn't feel like enough. Finally, I got her a key with the word "HAPPY" on it as a reminder that she has a choice in how she can deal with this world and that the positive can and does outweigh the negative in her life. I didn't have the chance to deliver it to her in person, but she really loves the key. I don't know if she'll ever like me the way I like her, but that's not the point. I just hope that one day she will wake up, go to put on her Giving Key, and suddenly realize in that moment that she doesn't need it anymore. 

Here's to hoping...
