There is no shortage of viral videos on the internet that are here one day, and old news the next.


But every once in a while we get an update from an old favorite that we never expected.

And in the case of a video of a young boy, the ending is oh so sweet.

It all started when the boy's father recently shared a video of the boy that went viral two years ago in which he was so scared to jump off a diving board that he was shaking uncontrollably.

Twitter was incredibly impressed with just how far RJ has come.


And RJ's dad even took the time to respond to some of the love.

We can't wait to see what the future holds for this rising star.

This will often lead these couples to look for ways to spice things up a bit.

Among the more popular experiments is inviting a third member to their bedroom.

Enticing as this prospect is, however, it's also easy to be intimidated by the reality of it, or even the mere suggestion of it.

Though not necessarily a universal truth, all of us have witnessed unfortunate moments in our lives where we've seen this saying become a reality.

Be it seeing our favorite public figures take a serious fall from grace, someone we know and admire eventually disappointing us in a devastating manner, or even seeing ourselves turn into someone we promised we'd never become.

Sometimes we do things that have to be done.
