John Michael Montgomery once sang...

Life's a dance; you learn as you go. Sometimes you lead, and sometimes you follow.

In the world of life hacks, that's certainly true.

I know you've gone down the rabbit hole of social media videos of watching people do things and are shocked when they do it so much easier, and you wonder why you didn't think of that.

The other day, I purchased a new bottle of ibuprofen and struggled with the stupid child safety cap. It took me longer to open it than it should have, which caused my headache to get worse. I understand you don't want easy-to-open pill bottles around the house if you have kids, but I don't have kids, so there's no need for the cap.

*** Removing child safety lock caps can be harmful to children...don't do it if you have children. 

Fast-forward a few days, and I was trapped in a social media 'life hack' video spiral when I watched one that addressed the pill bottle issue I'd just experienced. I immediately leaped off the couch, ran to the medicine cabinet, and, much to my surprise, was shocked to learn it was true.

Once I found that hack, I knew dealing with headaches, back and knee pain, and swelling would be much more enjoyable and less time-consuming than before.

In a world where social media can be such a downer, the way to go is to use it for good and not evil. Some people are dedicated to making social media more enjoyable and a learning tool, not just using it to try and ruin people's lives.

Let's all raise a pill bottle cap for those making the internet tolerable.
