The Viral Video of the Dancing Construction Worker in Schenectady Provides a Lesson in Enjoying Life

You wake up to another cold morning. Put the coffee on, look out the window and let out a the inevitable sigh at the thought of your to-do list for the day. In these moments, it’s easy to forget there are others feeling the same way about life and the daily grind, if not worse.

It’s easy to sulk in self-pity, but the truth is, you’re alive, and you should be thankful for another day. Whatever you may be doing, you can make the best of it, and if you’re this construction worker in Schenectady, you make it a god damn party.

The truth is, nobody gives a shit about your problems and what you have to face everyday, so you might need to take a step back, take a deep breath, and figure out one of the infinite ways you can make your day better. You need to realize you hold a lot more power over your mood than you may think, and many times having a good day is a DECISION. You can decide to have a good day, you can decide to do something to lighten your mood. And guess what? Your decision to do that makes the lives brighter for all the other miserable SOBs you encounter in a single day.

You can decide to play some music and dance in the morning. You can decide to take a step towards bettering your physical health. Go for a walk, start small. You can decide to make a healthier choice for lunch. You can decide to not let petty gossip talk disturb your inner peace.

You have so much power to make the best of life, to have enthusiasm for life, and this man is living proof of that. Plus, he’s up to over 44,000 video views, so if you can be happy AND give yourself a chance to go viral during the process, you’re doing something right.
