It looks like an ordinary day on the farm. Farmer Jay Lavery is in his barn sweeping up some hay next to his goats.
But then suddenly, something happens. Jay shakes his hips, moves his feet, and throws his broom on the floor. And before you know it, he’s showing off some awesome dance moves as Sia’s “I Love Cheap Thrills” booms from the speakers.
Fortunately, Jay decided to upload the clip on his Facebook page. There, he describes how dancing isn’t just a way to keep warm in the barn—it’s also his medicine. He had a traumatic back injury 15 years ago, and now dance, yoga, and meditation are his alternatives to pain medication.
“I hope this can inspire anyone to move in spite of pain and I hope this puts a smile on your face,” he writes.
Well, Jay’s video certainly had me beaming from ear to ear! And I know I’m not alone—in less than three weeks, Jay’s video has racked up almost 100,000 likes, more than 70,000 shares, and 20,000 comments. Not bad for a farmer having a little fun in the barn!
What a wonderful video! So nice to see how Jay doesn’t take himself too seriously and loves life. Share this with your friends and put a smile on their face today!
