I’m finding contagious joy in the silliest of places!
I’ve noticed that the things that make us smile don’t always make sense on paper. If you’d like an example, look no further than…
this video, “Baby Laughing Hysterically at Ripping Paper.”
Contagious joy. I was giggling hard by the end. And afterwards? I felt lighter. Better. Less woeful. Much sillier.
We are social creatures, and we like to share our burdens AND our happiness. So when we see such over-the-top delight, it’s hard not to sponge it up ourselves. Sure, it doesn’t sound too impressive. Ripping paper? Hysterical?
Here’s a video of my brother’s baby laughing with her mother, Ashley, our food stylist and recipe guru.
Thank goodness for contagious belly laughs, and the laughers who produce them! Thank goodness joy is catching! And thank goodness for little babies who remind us of something we tend to forget: life is funny! And usually, it’s the little things that remind us.
What’s the silliest thing that gets you to giggling?
