When things got too sad around the house growing up, my mom would break in with, “Let’s talk about something happy!” This used to drive me crazy, especially as a slightly morose, self-absorbed teenager. But with every year that passes, I get it a little more. The world is so full of sad things and the chances to dwell somewhere lighter, more peaceful, get rarer.
Here are a few happy things I’ve discovered recently. Click on one and take a smile break.
1. A newborn deer. I’m not sure there is anything sweeter or purer on the internet. Stay on this tumblr for a constant stream of good news updates. It’s pretty great.
2. This dog. I have seriously watched this video like 25 times in the last 2 days.
3. This song. “You got to hold on, hold on through the night. Hang on, hang on to the vine. Stay on, soon you’ll be divine. If you start to cry, look up to the sky, something’s coming up ahead to turn your tears to dew instead.”
