I am 31 years old and have realized that the secret to happiness is not how much money a person has, contrary to what my family think. I realized that the secret to happiness is not in what we own. Possessions will come and go. The secret to happiness is being excited about the little things in life. It is funny to think that something can mean absolutely nothing to one person, but mean the world to another.

I want to share with all of you a couple of videos that will put a smile on your face if you have a heart. I see a lot of videos of people posting videos sharing their incredible life moments. It truly is amazing that we live in a world where we can live a moment with someone that we do not even know. We can feel their emotions, as the event is unfolding in front of our very eyes. The two videos I am going to share with you showed up maybe in the weirdest places for happiness. Facebook Feed. I am not sure about many of you, but there are days where logging onto Facebook makes me want to buy a toaster, sit in a bath tub, and see what starts cooking. The problem for me is reading what other people have to say about someone else’s happiness. In this case, the happiness comes from two young ladies in the transgender community. One girl finds out she is going to be starting hormones, and the other girl finds out her name change is legal.

As you watch these videos, remember it is the small things that make a person happy.

About the author

Richard Pruitt

I am Richard and I have a problem. A problem with entertaining people. I have been in the comedy world for over 10 years. I started out as an improv actor making fun and light of everything. Doing that felt rewarding, but I have to admit, I wanted more. I couldn’t get the taste of performing out of my mouth. Does that not sound a little creepy? I decided to start doing my own stand up show. I love to make fun of my family and anything that will make a normal person say what the fuck. The journey still continues, in 2009, I had a dream to create my own online magazine. This is the beautiful corner of craziness in front of you. I have been through hell in my life but being stopped is something that I will not let happen. I am a fighter and hope to make people realize it is ok to smile and think from time to time. It also helps being a nerd.
