Before I watched this, my view of the world was much darker.

Look at that tail wagging and that floppy nose! Yes, that baby elephant is disarmingly cute, but that's just to soften you up for his much grander message: appreciate life's little joys. That's something we say to ourselves when we're feeling down or trying to annoy a friend who is feeling down. But this guy is leading by example and seeing is believing.


He'll never catch those birds and he doesn't even want to. Sometimes the chase, the jump, the hop, the little side-skip is the journey. Sometimes we have to take what's in front of us and make it a game. Thank you baby elephant for giving me a new direction, for today at least. You even make bath time look fun.
