Have you heard of Candace Payne? She’s no celebrity – she’s a mom from Dallas who enjoys The Simple Joys in Life, like Chewbacca masks and posting live videos on Facebook. And despite not having any resources beyond her personal Facebook page, a phone, and a real lust for life, she’s crushed the record for most-viewed Facebook Live video. The record was previously held by the Watermelon Explosion video that Buzzfeed posted – with around 10 million views… But Payne’s video, as of Sunday afternoon, is sitting at nearly 130 million views!
If you haven’t shared her joy, you need to watch this:
I get the impression the Candace loves to laugh in general, judging by her reaction when folks from Kohl’s showed up at her door to bring the family some goodies (including their own masks) and a whole bunch off gift cards as a thank you for all of the free advertising she gave the store… And of course, to capitalize on another chance for some free advertising…
So if you’re ever having a bad day, just remember this woman and how she finds such joy in little things. It might just make you feel a bit better!
