Positive News Stories From This Week #8

Let’s not let too much time slip by without acknowledging some of the many good things that continue to happen around the world, even in these trying times.

Every week, I search news outlets both local to me and abroad to put together a round-up of some of the many positive news stories I find, with the hope of spreading positivity, shining a much-deserved spotlight on acts of kindness of every shape and size, and inspiring myself and others to do good things in our own communities however and whenever we can. 

Here now are this past week-and-a-bit’s feel-good finds. Read on, and smile wide!

Positive News Stories From This Week #7

Hello, everyone! After a bit of an unscheduled pause, my end-of-week round-up of some of the many positive things happening around the world right now is BACK! 

First of all, thank you so very much for sticking with me during this recent pause in posting. After kicking off Mental Health Awareness Week at the start of last week, I suddenly realized that I’d been pushing myself to be way too productive, way too often as of late, and that I was in fact feeling a bit burnt-out. After a good rest and a bit of self-care, I was then able to celebrate my big 3-0 (GASP!) feeling much more like myself. (I suppose I took a little bit of extra time off for that too – and I’m much better for it!)

Anyway, that’s quite enough about me. On to the good stuff, eh?

Wishing you all joy and contentment in the week ahead.

Hello again, everyone – and a very Happy Mother’s Day to those reading this in the States right now.

Today I’m back with a fresh end-of-week news round-up, ready to shine a spotlight on some of the many positive things and acts of kindness continuing to happen around the world during these often uncertain and sometimes stressful times. My wish, as from the very beginning of this lockdown tradition, is that these stories of kindness, community, and hope will add a bit of sunshine to your day. Perhaps you’ll even be inspired to help out a struggling neighbour or stranger in need however you may be able during the week ahead.

Positive News Stories From This Week #2

Last Sunday, I posted a round-up of some of the past week’s more positive news stories from around the globe, hoping to spread a bit of cheer during these strange times. It was a joy to put together. I actually found more nice news nuggets than I quite knew what to do with! It was also a joy to share. It was so lovely to hear from some of you, both friends and strangers alike, about how you appreciated the reminder of all the good that is happening in the world right now.

With all this in mind, I want to keep things rolling. And so, here is another installment of Positive News Stories From This Week! 

Please do drop a comment below to say hello or share a story I’ve missed of something lovely that has happened this week. It would also be lovely to hear what some of you are up to during lockdown. Working from home? Tinkering with a personal creative project? Learning something new? It’s all good, and I’d love to hear about it. In the meantime, please do take care of yourselves.

Positive News Stories From This Week

As this week comes to an end, I’d like to share with you all a round-up of recent positive news stories from around the globe, featuring acts of kindness, inspired innovations, and a glimpse at a brighter future within reach for the environment.

In the past, news updates here on the site have focused solely on things to do with nature – but with all that’s happening in the world at present, I’d like to broaden that focus now, looking at any and all positive things happening around the globe. And, I promise, there IS a lot of good stuff happening, folks! Sometimes these stories just get a bit lost and buried under the other not-so-nice stories, unfortunately. Anyway, if these posts are something you’d like to see more of, let me know with a like or a comment below – perhaps this might become a regular weekly feature.
