Looking for Joy and Hope
The holiday season is very hard for me, and always brings on the blues. And the election results have made my blues even worse this year. So, I have been looking for rays of light, bursts of laughter, and positivity wherever I can find it. Yesterday I saw that there was a new challenge called U Name it. The challenge consists of people dancing to an older gospel song called Hold my mule by Shirley Caesar. Although I am agnostic, I have always loved gospel/soul music. It gives me all the feels, and it stirs something inside me. Anyway, as I was watching some of these videos and just loving the dancing, creativity and Joy, I stumbled across this vegan version and fell in love, and had to share. I also was very happy when I saw the comments on this video. No one was slamming veganism, quite the opposite. One woman commented and said her husband was considering veganism based on the video and his rap, and many other people agreed. It was very heartwarming. And how cute is this guy? I'm sorry I don't know his name, but he's so adorable and his enthusiasm is infectious. If you need some happiness in your life, look up the challenge, there are some great dance moves and it's just very organically joyous. So needed given the current state of things.
I hope everyone has a happy Sunday!
