What a week. What a horrible tragic week for news. And it makes me sad that the world can be such a violent hate-filled place. But I don’t want to give the negative action of others any more attention, this blog is a happy place, my happy place I want to share with you. So in order to lift my spirits (and hopefully yours) I thought I would write a post of a few things to make us all feel a little bit uplifted.
1. Baby Pandas
I know it’s old news but this video never fails to make me smile. Everybody loves baby pandas! Fun fact: I actually tried to apply for that panda nanny job that was buzzing about the internet a while back but my lack of Chinese language held me back. D’oh!
2. Chef The Movie
I love this film! It’s just so nice. Alright, nice isn’t the best word and there’s alot of swearing in it but ultimately it’s a feel good film about pursuing your dreams. Plus there’s alot of food porn and a catchy soundtrack – who could feel sad listening to latin music?!
3. Everyday Heroes
I’m tired of the media. If it’s not doom and gloom, then it’s pointless gossip about pointless “celebrities”. How about we turn our attentions to inspiring people who actually do something worthwhile?
Last month I wrote a post about Kangaroo Dundee, a man who dedicates his life to rescuing orphaned kangaroos (which he has actually read after my husband sent a link to him without me knowing!). But Kangaroo Dundee isn’t the only real life hero out there. There are many, many other people committing random acts of kindness, dedicating themselves to a cause or just generally being good, honest, inspiring people – why don’t we talk about them from time to time? I decided to create a pinterest board to honour these heroes, it’s early days yet but you can find it here.
These are things that make me feel uplifted right now – how about you? Share your happiness below!
