Sometimes life can seem really dumb. But then you see an old lady dancing to a beatboxer on the street in Brussels, and you remember that everything is going to be just fine.

This lady has everything I want in life: a sunny day, a steadfast animal companion, and the joyful, don't-give-a-fuck attitude to break it down in the streets of Brussels. If people could be spirit animals, I would want her to be mine. She just so damn happy.

Join me on a little mental exercise for a second. Imagine that there was one of this lady for every 50 people who exist. So every fiftieth person you see in your day, whether you're at work or at the mall or doing jury duty or whatever, is this really happy lady busting all the moves. Picture her in a jail cell. Picture her in a cancer research lab. Picture her in a Ford factory, dancing while she also monitors the machine that puts the doors on Fiestas. Don't all of these places suddenly seem more joyful, more wonderful, more saturated with color? I don't want to get too deep on you, but just think of how much better life could be if we brought this sort of super-present joy to our lives for just a few minutes a day.
