Today’s Positive News Stories 10/5/18

Happy Friday!

Today is…Do Something Nice Day

Yesterday you may have celebrated International Toot Your Own Flute Day, where you spent the day being selfish and thinking only about yourself. Today is a day to be selfless and think about others. Not only should you think about them, but you should put your thoughts into actions by doing something nice for them. Whatever you do should be done not because it will evoke a positive response from someone else, but because your are doing it from your heart. So often we go through our days in a hurry and don’t think about the effect on someone else that stopping and pausing to do something nice will have. Today is a day to set a foundation of kindness that hopefully will stay long after this day has passed.
Every day we look for the best in Positive News so that you might have a great start on your day. Thank you for taking the time to read, share and support our mission.

  • Kristin Rhodes is the strongest woman in America.
  • The other day while driving home, an older lady in my home town was stuck in the grass to the side of the sidewalk. One wheel of her wheelchair, would not move. A young man made an attempt, but could not push it. Moments later, a first responder driving by, pulled over, turning on his lights and gave help. For both of these folks stranded, I am thankful for those who decide to help.
