Kid President changed my life. There, I said it! If you haven’t seen this YouTube sensation, you must watch him immediately! You’d never guess that this adorable little boy lives with a painful and rare bone condition and has been in and out of the hospital for much of his young life. He has discovered the secret to true happiness: making others happy.
His book, Kid President’s Guide to Being Awesome, featuring “100 Ways to Change the World, is a go-to read for my kids and I when we’re feeling sorry for ourselves. My favorite: give someone a high-five everyday. I’ve personally tested this one, and you’d be surprised how excited people are, even in the most formal situations, to get a high-five for a job well done. Try it; I promise you will feel instant #innerhappy.
