There's a lot we can learn from this koala getting a belly rub
Tami, a zookeeper at Symbio Wildlife Park, recently made a huge discovery about one of their koala bears named Harry. The discovery was life-changing for both Harry and Tami.Tami learned one day that Harry loved getting belly rubs. Harry simultaneously learned that Tami gives the best belly rubs on the planet. They basically became a match made in heaven. And luckily for all of us, there’s an amazing video that documents the pair’s bond.
Harry’s enthusiasm and ease with Tami reminds us of some valuable life lessons. Like how important it is to get out of your comfort zone. Harry had never before known what a belly rub felt like. And had he been too scared to let Tami try it out on him, he would have missed out on something wonderful.
Harry also reminds us to lose yourself in the happiness of the moment as he blissfully falls backwards as Tami scratches him. He shows that there’s no need to be self-conscious when you’re enjoying the moment. Just live in it and enjoy.
And of course Harry is not only a taker. He gives back, showing his appreciation for Tami’s love many times over by giving her lots of cuddles and holding her arms with his paws, and even giving her adorable little toothy koala kisses.
Watching the two of them is so adorably inspiring, it reminds you that there’s someone (animal or human) for everyone. There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that this is true love. Since this video has gotten popular, I’d imagine the rights to the movie When Harry Met Tami have likely already been gobbled up. But in case they’re not, we’re totally calling dibs.
Take a look for yourself and prepare to once again believe in soulmates.
