Some of you may remember seeing "The Joy of Painting" with Bob Ross on television growing up. The show ended in 1994, but it was commonly replayed on local television channels like PBS. Bob Ross, an incredibly talented painter, would invite his viewers to paint along with him, teaching them various techniques along the way.
However, the most memorable thing about Bob Ross's television show is not actually his art. For many people, it was his calm and optimistic nature:
Bob Ross had a military history, which dramatically affected his personality. He said that because the army required him to be such a mean and tough person, yelling at people all the time, he vowed to never yell again once he left. Since he was so calm all the time, watching Bob Ross was like this awesome, uplifting kind of therapy. Everything was "happy" -- the trees, the clouds, the animals. Even your mistakes were happy!
So, if you're ever having a bad day and need some cheering up, sit down and watch some Bob Ross's "The Joy of Painting." If you don't have time to watch a whole episode, you could always just watch this incredibly uplifting remix that somebody made:
