The 2022 European Championship games have been a showcase of incredible skill and artistry - and adorableness.

Skaters have scored high marks with judges, but Polish skater Ekaterina Kurakova is scoring even higher with the internet right now.

The teenager has made a name for herself not only for her athleticism, but for "skating with total joy" as one outlet put it. Her short-program routine proved to be a great example of why.

Ekaterina's joy is clear throughout the entire performance, but her happy-dance at the end was the cherry on top for Twitter.

Kurakova absolutely living her best life out there on the ice has been a bright spot and inspiration.

So with that final tweet as inspiration, we encourage you to get out there and have some fun with what you're doing. When you nail it, do the little happy dance for yourself.

You deserve it.
