Weekend Refreshment

Sssshhhhh I have a secret. There is a lot of good in the world that nobody pays much attention to, cuz it's not scary. Recently I've started skimming over news stories (and to be factual, most of it isn't even "news", it's opinion and conjecture inciting emotional response) and only picking out the good stuff. Here's some of it.

A cop and some regular people saved a little girl

Look for the good, it's around. If you really wanna shake things up, go do something good for someone. Or make a dream come true/

I'll take the good news when I can get it. There is WAY too much bad news.

Good girl. Keep looking for the good news. It's always there' sometimes we just have to dig a little deeper to find it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I wept tears of sentimental happiness at so many of these stories - and these are the sort of tears I am happy to have leaking from my eyes.

I'll keep doing this regularly. I think we all need the morale boost.
