Navigating through life and facing the world with all of its real inescapable issues can be exhausting. No matter who you are, everyone is affected by terrible incidents and unspeakable tragedies. Whether it's mass shootings, actions fueled by racism, sexual abuse, or natural disasters, life can undoubtedly be tough. That's why it's important to have a pick-me-up every now and then, to remind yourself about the world's beauty and its simple, everyday light-hearted joys – like witnessing an innocent, cute, drooling baby laugh their belly off. Seriously, what's sweeter than that? Ready for your pick-me-up? Here's six videos of babies laughing that will make you forget all the awful things in the world. Because sometimes a reminder this cute is just necessary.
The roundup of videos shows a few babies enjoying life, their parents, their family dog, or ripping paper. Remember when you used to find the simplest things entertaining and hilarious? I distinctively remember the joy I felt, running after the ice cream truck, playing tag with my brother, or building kid-sized forts with bed sheets, vacuum poles, and sofa cushions in elementary school. And even though my parents were likely a bit annoyed having to skillfully tiptoe around my new "home" in the middle of the living room, I know they enjoyed watching me glean tremendous joy from such a simple creation.
These laughing babies, amused with what most adults would find to be ridiculous gestures, is a reminder that it's never too late to express uncontrollable joy. Their laughter and happiness says it all.
