20 Sweet Moments That Will Make You Smile and Brighten Up Your Day

Canyoning at the age of 67, getting your first pup as a kid, and falling in love with a kitten even if you thought you didn’t want one — images like these can exude positive energy and fuel happiness. Even something small, like saying, “I love you” instead of “thank you” can make you feel better and lift your hopes up.
