As the world pretty much goes into lockdown and survival more, there’s a LOT to talk about. At first there was panic, some doubt about how we were going to handle all of this. Then fear set in when whole countries started quarantine, hoarding and data.
All our social media feeds were full of stories, data, misinformation and dread.
But now. Now we are seeing humanity rally. Acts of kindness and rising to the challenge with creativity. You see, we humans are pretty resilient when we put our minds to it. When we can open our minds to good we see less of the doom and gloom and can begin to live.
So today I’d like to share some of the amazing stories with you. To lift you up and help you smile. Cuz that’s what people do when they want to be resilient. We look to beauty and kindness and love.
Share these stories on your social media to spread the glow!
