Tired of Negative Stories? Must Read Post!

Man feeds homeless who can't feed himself.

Last night I was chatting with one of my best girlfriends and Spelman Sisters about just how heartbreaking and darn near scary the past few months have been in the news. It's been one sad story after another. If it hasn't been a child losing their life, it's been the government in crisis, some negative story about a celeb, or some random act of violence .

If you're not careful you can easily get sucked into the negative energy portrayed in the media constantly. You'd think that there is hardly any good in this world. Well, mid conversation last night, Kim flipped the switch on me by sharing that she'd stumbled across this post somewhere a couple of days ago. In it, someone decided to compile 26 beautiful stories that would restore readers' faith in humanity.

I immediately searched it out this morning to share with you all. I can't lie, I teared a bit scrolling through these photos. People are being kind to one another every day. Their stories won't be fed to us in the longest news segments, or the feature post on blogs, but they are out there. Below are a handful of the stories that made me smile from BuzzFeed's  truly inspiring post. Here's a great way to start your Friday! Thanks to my girlie Kim for the heads up on this!

1.)The woman who kept a homeless man dry during a downpour

2.)The Michigan soccer team who gave their team manager with Down syndrome an opportunity to start

3.)Jennifer Foster was visiting Times Square on Nov. 14 when she snapped the heartwarming moment. Here’s her account of what happened:

“Right when I was about to approach, one of your officers came up behind him. The officer said,
‘I have these size 12 boots for you, they are all-weather. Let’s put them on and take care of you.’ The officer squatted down on the ground and proceeded to put socks and the new boots on this man. The officer expected NOTHING in return and did not know I was watching*. I have been in law enforcement for 17 years. I was never so impressed in my life. I did not get the officer’s name. It is important, I think, for all of us to remember the real reason we are in this line of work. The reminder this officer gave to our profession in his presentation of human kindness has not been lost on myself or any of the Arizona law enforcement officials with whom this story has been shared.

4.)Parents tattoo Insulin pumps on their tummy so their little boy who is diabetic doesn't feel "weird"

5.)Football player takes kids on shopping spree every year. This photo is supposedly $19,000 in toys!

6.)So sweet! Look at his smile!

7.)Cute warning parents handed out on a plane.

I hope these stories help to put a smile on your face amidst all of the negativity you've been fed through the media recently. There are still kind people out there doing kind things. You can too... here's a little something that I do often- the next time you go through the drive through, pay for the food of the person behind you. Watch how absolutely amazed they are when they realize some random person did that for them. It's the little things! Happy Friday BabyKayKs!
