I can get lost in cute internet videos for an unhealthy amount of time. Some may think that watching cute animals videos on the internet – or soldier homecomings, or pregnancy announcements, or deaf people hearing for the first time – is a huge waste of time. I think it’s an important and necessary part of your daily self-care. There is nothing better for the body and soul than a good, healthy cry or laugh. It keeps me in touch with my humanity. I’m nostalgic for the days of Bob Saget’s America’s Funniest Home Videos. Todays internet is where the best home videos are – random moments of genuine human interaction. There is something about watching Sammich look at the television and think it’s a window that softens me. It brings me back down to earth. Something about the way she desperately wants in on the action that fills my heart up. Life is fullest in these small moments.
