“Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world. Constantly color your picture gray, and your picture will always be bleak. Try adding some bright colors to the picture by including humor, and your picture begins to lighten up.” – Allen Klein

Positivity in Unheard Places

To rationally explain positivity would be impossible. It isn’t something you can touch or feel, it isn’t something to hold or even to be taken. Truthfully, positivity is only something you can give. This lesson became apparent to me last yearThere was a time I slept by the dumpster at an old job after they closed and until they opened in the morning for a few weeks until I found someplace to stay. However, during that time I also had two little orange kittens come visit me every morning and I would put my coat down for them so they could eat and get some rest in a warm environment. In return they provided me company and something to work for, something to look forward to. We soon became best friends and eventually I adopted them when I got a place to stay. They taught me a very important lesson and that is that if you give love, love will be given back. Stay Blissful, Stay Beautiful, and Stay Happy!

3rd World Countries Increasing Healthy Water Supplies

Glass crafting company Stella Artois has donated more than $1.2 million to improving healthy water in 3rd world countries in the past. In 2015, however, they paired up with water.org to increase the amount of assistance they can provide to these countries, then again united in 2016 to go beyond the expected outcome. Going to BuyALadyADrink.com could aid in getting healthy H2O to women in 3rd world countries. For only $12 right now you can buy a Limited Edition Stella Artois Chalice,  which results in 1 person having 5 years of clean, wonderful water. Not only does this help the women, but it helps their children as well-leading to a more populated community.

The Love of Hope

A soup kitchen established in Kansas City has put a fresh spin on how they do their business. In order to make their homeless community feel more comfortable at soup kitchens, they instead treat it as a sit-down restaurant. For 30 years now, the Kansas City Community Kitchen has been serving the needy with the needed. As of February 5th it reinvented how they serve their visitors. Not only do they serve their food like a diner, but they also cook food like a diner. Michael Curry, executive chef, prepares an assortment of food you can find on their menu. So, the next time you’re down and thinking that all hope is lost, just remember-if you stay positive, positive things will happen.

Thursday’s Two Top Tips for Optimism

1.    “Truth is, I’ll never know all there is to know about you just as you will never know all there is to know about me. Humans are by nature too complicated to be understood fully. So, we can choose either to approach our fellow human beings with suspicion or to approach them with an open mind, a dash of optimism and a great deal of candor” – Tom Hanks

New York City Has the Purest Air in the US

When you think of air purity, New York City would be the last place you would look. In a recent study done, however, we were proven wrong. As of February, 2016 New York City has been struck with the best levels of air purity in 50 years now. If we can get these results to spread, we would extensively preserve the nature of this beautiful planet. You can check out the article for yourself here at greatnewsnetwork.

New York isn’t the only place improving air quality, either. Another study done in Boston, MA informs us that roughly 545 counties in the US today are still extending life expectancy by increasing the quality of the air in their area. There is still hope for us, everyone. Even just by not using as much aerosol or putting your cigarette out a little earlier than you normally would you can significantly affect the environment. You can make a difference by yourself, but remember that together we can change everything. Stay Happy, Stay Blissful, and Stay Optimistic.
