When your day seems like it couldn’t get any worse — you spilled coffee on yourself, you were late to work AND had a giant coffee stain on your pant leg — instead of losing your mind at the first person you see, switch on your computer and take 15 minutes to look through NMR’s list of the top 10 most inspirational YouTube videos of all time.
While it can be a challenge to remain calm when life’s irritations begin to overwhelm you, in the big scheme of things being stuck in L.A. traffic or finding yourself in an elevator with the awkward kid from your office aren’t really the worst things in the world. The videos below capture some of life’s most incredible moments from the indescribable bond of animals and their rescuers to the incredible strength of the human spirit to overcome it’s physical limitations. While some days can go by in the blink of an eye, I hope these videos inspire you to appreciate the simple moments of happiness in your own life and learn from the incredible stories of others.
