Every so often we all need a reminder of the magic that can come from the little moments in life.

A friend recently forwarded me a video that captures some of these precious moments, like when a butterfly lands on a dog’s nose, when a dog chases a squirrel up a tree, or when a couple of turtles race each other on the beach.

“Whether you make an unexpected friend, or you’re just in the right place at the right time … the world is filled with so much love and beauty, sometimes you just need to see to believe and feel like a kid again,” shares the video.

These moments can happen in a faraway place or close to home. They can happen unexpectedly and take you by surprise. Wherever or however they happen, it’s important to notice and appreciate “how truly magical the world really is.”
