Physical sensations are part of our everyday lives, but not all of them are created equal. Hugging a friend, for example, feels way better than a papercut.

There are a lot of great sensations, though. One of my favorites is the feeling of the short fur just under my cat's chin, which she loves to have scratched. Her fur is super soft, and it brings me joy to scratch her chin because she so obviously loves the interaction too.

There is so much joy to experience! What would you add to this list? Let us know in the comments.

We love movies.

Movies and entertainment save the world.

But some movies can send you into a messy place.

Some topics are just a lot to handle.

When we're kids, being an adult and getting to do whatever we want often seems like the bestest, most awesome thing we could imagine.

But not everything is better as an adult.

Jobs, responsibilities, and that weird back pain you always seem to get when you sit at your desk too long are just part of getting older. A lot of things that were awesome as a kid just don't hit the same as an adult either.

So if you had the option to have the capacity for one or the other, which would it be?
