Every once in a while, someone will send me something that just makes my day. This morning I got an email from a friend that contained a video from YouTube. It said a lot without saying a word.
Every morning, I read the paper with my coffee and every morning I am bombarded with all the things that went wrong yesterday. The paper is divided into sections. The National crisis section and the Local crisis section. Then there is the Sports crisis section. By the time I finish, the sun shining through the kitchen window doesn’t somehow seem as bright.
But this morning was different. Having completed perusing the paper, I logged onto my email and there it was. Nothing professionally produced or even well choreographed. Maybe that’s what made it special. It is simply a video of people dancing. Everywhere. All over the world. They were all happy. They were all having fun. It didn’t make any difference who they were or where they were. They had nothing in common except the willingness to dance. It was wonderful. I know that I will play it again, probably more then once, because it gladdened my heart.
So my gift to you today is to pass on this video and dare you not to come away feeling a little better about your world and encourage you to dance like no one is looking.
