lightness

Hi,

Would you please tell if "lightness" here means "Ease or cheerfulness in manner or style" or " Freedom from worry or trouble.", or maybe "became full of light"? Here, Harold remembers an old sweet memory, about falling in love with his wife for the first time.

Remembering, Harold was filled with lightness, as if he were warm again, somewhere deep inside.
Thanks.
It's part of "The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry"by Rachel Joyce, British writer.`

    I think the meaning that is closest is "Ease or cheerfulness in manner or style." It's difficult to create an exact definition for a metaphoric use like this one.
