On the Bright Side

It’s often hard to focus on the good in the world, especially when our own lives are full of challenges and the news fixates on the troublesome and shocking. Fortunately, there are some sources out there for finding out what’s going well in the world and to gain some strength and inspiration from it.
Some of my favorite places to go for positive news and inspiration:
Daily Good: Each day they focus on a person or event, attach an inspirational quote, and a suggestion on how you can harness the positivity in your own life. I used these articles as daily writing prompts in the classroom.
Happy News: This one is new to me but looks good!
Help Others: A place to gain inspiration on how to be a positive force in the world.
The Foundation for a Better Life: Focuses on value education, inspiration, and positive action.
