Want to feel better about life? This super-viral father-daughter video might work.

It’s sentimental, but so what?


With this awful election cycle, the seemingly endless bad news across this country and the world, and a just a general icky feeling all over the place these days, it’s probably no surprise that this very inspirational video of an exchange between a father and daughter has only gained in popularity since it was posted on Ron Altson’s Destined for Greatness Health and Wellness Facebook page. It is now up to 16 million views.

In it, Alston and his 3-year-old daughter Aliya do a morning motivational mantra. Sure, it’s sentimental, but who cares? It works.
