One of the most positive and wholesome trends on social media is to explore self-love and self-care by positive affirmations about yourself. It is a great way to navigate this largely negative life and make things a little easier. If you want some motivation today, then this video is for you. Going viral on Instagram, this short clip features a specially-abled child with the brightest smiles and some killer moves as he gets ready for the day ahead. The dance, coupled with the very uplifting song Vacation by Dirty Heads, is the positive push you need in life.
The boy named Treg Wheeler stars in this bright, shiny video with a bright, shiny expression of happiness. His mum runs the Instagram account and wrote in the caption that Treg is always happy after being set up in front of the mirror to do his hair. To express his satisfaction over how he looks after getting ready, he does the little dance.
The song lyrics go, ‘I’m on a vacation every single day because I love my occupation.’
While usually it’s advisable to never check comment sections on social media for your own mental peace, the conversation threads on this video are a treasure trove of positivity. “Lol**♀️this man is feeling himself. Go ahead baby, if u cute u cute u can’t help it show it," said one user “Love it!! I say we should all follow Tregs example and start our day off right ❤"
So if you are feeling a little weekday blues, get in front of the mirror and follow in Treg’s footsteps.
