I love this video.
Simply. Love. It.
Because it demonstrates how essential laughter is to our humanity.
In the video, “Dad” has received a rejection letter. Watch baby’s reaction as Dad rips up said letter.
From what we see here … Dad could have stomped around, but didn’t. He could have pouted, but didn’t. Instead … he happened across a simple diversion that produced heartfelt joy.
Laughter is essential. It releases endorphins that relax and rejuvenate us. It connects us and it frees us .. all at once.
It’s awfully difficult to laugh and be angry at the same time.
