If you watched this week’s episode of The Good Place, you would have seen that The Good Place smells like whatever makes you happiest.
Now, I don’t actually know what that would mean for me, but I have been thinking about things that make me happy lately.
I think it’s important to have little things that make your heart sing. Earlier this week, I noticed I was feeling that way about my birthday cards this year. It got me started thinking about all the things that give me a quick pick me up when I need it.
This video is my favourite thing right now. I watched it once when my cousin-ish (second cousin? third? Liz, help??) shared it on Facebook. I watched it once without audio, then I watched it again with audio and it was 20x more enjoyable – which I’d never have thought possible.
I watched it again the next day when I showed it to a workmate, then again after I sent it to his wife. I watched it that night when I showed it to Kevin with the volume up – poor guy had only watched it without. And I’ve watched it almost every day since.
It makes me so happy in so many ways. Sure, the dogs are cute and so are the people. I think the bigger story for me is the love that’s being shared and the fun that’s being had while doing so. As my friend’s wife said, “I would be best friends with these people.” Me too.
Here’s a longer video (spoiler: it includes a birthday parade!) if you love it as much as I did.
What’s been making you happy lately? Please share!
