For April’s A-Z Challenge I posted about serial killers. After a month of rather grim reading I thought I should post on something a little more uplifting…
A number of years ago I stumbled across a website “Sunny Skyz“. Sunny Skyz was created as a place for positive, upbeat good news stories from around the world. Over time it has expanded to promote love, laughter and kindness . With all the negativity you find in the news and on social media, this site is a refreshingly bright corner of the web.
Examples of content :
- a story about a commuter on NYC subway who witnessed an older gentleman approach another man and sat next to him. The kind gentleman said he had noticed the other man looking confused and asked if could he help. The second man said his son had failed a maths test and he was trying to relearn fractions so he could help his son. The first man said he was a retired maths teacher and to ask him anything. He then spent the train trip helping the father with fractions.
- two neighbours agreed to put a pet door in their fence so their dogs can play together more often
- the 11-year old girl who’s bus driver braids her hair every morning after her mother passed away
- the weather in Bulgaria has been so cold that storks, which migrate in winter, have been freezing to death. So kind people have taken them inside their homes to save them.
So if you ever need to feel warm and fuzzy, pop over to Sunny Skyz. I can guarantee you’ll find something to make you smile.
Do you have an inspirational or cheery story to share?
