Who doesn't love a good chain reaction?
No, I mean seriously. One thing setting off another is just so ... satisfying, you know? They have a rhythm that just makes me feel good.
Tell me you don't feel better just watching that.
That one is a little messy, though, isn't it? The best is when one thing sets off another, and another and another, and it feels ... complete. Everything winds up in the right place.

Shiny, right? I seriously feel better just watching that.
But here's the best one-thing-leads-to-another I've seen in a long time.
Tiny little actions set off a chain of happiness. People give just a moment, or just a small gift. And the next person does, too. We have bumps of big kindness, but mostly, it's just a pulse of everyday friendliness.
Oh, and the song is "One Day" by reggae superstar Matisyahu. You will not regret having it stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
Watch to the end, because it's satisfying. Trust me, it will complete you.
Maybe today is a good day to start your own chain reaction. When someone does something as simple as smile at you, pay it forward.
