I thought I would take the idea from a post (page 4) in this topic and run with it...

People need to post more stuff like this. I'm tired of hearing about people eating people's faces and what not.
They should have a forum dedicated to "Good News". Thanks for sharing this, pretty awesome stuff.

here are several sites that are full of positive, uplifting stories...surely this will make a refreshing change from reading about impending war, natural disasters, social breakdown or the end of the world.
Its like we (and I include myself in that wow
are just addicted to reading about misery, suffering, evil plans, etc.
Yes it is a conspiracy site, and some content on here is very informative and worth reading - but lets all, just for once - be positive.

This was a nice story of people all just mucking in..really helping someone when they were on deaths door and unquestionably saved his life
Bystanders jump to the rescue

Read the pages below - read some stories, find a few more, share them on here.

Happy News

Optimist World

Beyond that - why not be more positive tomorrow (or now depending on your timezone)
Do a favour for a neighbour, help an old lady with some shopping, just hold the door for someone.
At work? Help a colleague out more than you would normally, dont bitch about someone at the water cooler, we all have our flaws dont we...

Just plain old smiling can be infectious - just be nice.
Its amazing if you are, people are generally nice back.

Lets start something - it might just catch on...

I would like to announce something that I consider very positive:

I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to Geico.

NOTE: Intended to be a JOKE, not advertisement.

Here is something VERY positive.
I could dope myself up with fully legal meds given to me by a fully licensed physician.
I would then forget about all of the worlds problems right up until possibly the moment I die.
It would be similar to reading a happy webpage for the rest of my life.
Or I could do what I can to deal with the everyday crap I have to and LIVE.

I'm fat, old, and broken but, I'm still kickin.
Now that's a good thing!

i'm all for good news,and i agree there should be a 'good news' forum on ATS just so we can go there to take a break from reality! there is good in the world if you know where to look!

i've been unemployed for a bit now (like many). given a few 'temp' jobs for 2 or 3 days,but thats it.
(thats more depressing than having no work!)
it often plays heavy on my soul. last nite before i went to bed i prayed. not in the traditional sense,but in my own way. i just mustered up all the positive energy i could,all the good things in my life like family and friends and love for them and myself. i squished all that positive energy into a little ball and 'put' it into my solar flexes,and just kept telling myself ' things will get better', and 'put out positive energy and it will come back to you'.
well i fell asleep doing this. this is the strange part.
i dream't i fell over some pails of water and landed face first in the water. i felt like i was drowning and i actually felt like i was slipping away! (it is 6:30 pm now and this experience is still freash in my mind 12 hours later!)
then i felt someone pull me out of the water,and i awoke with a jolt!
well as the morning progressed i carried on as usual cleaning and stuff,then the phone
rang. turns out i have a job interview tomorrow at 9:30 am!!!!

and it looks like they want me to stat the night shif on this sunday!!!

an hour or so later,the welfare people got a hold of me (i applied a month ago cause i'm broke!) and they said they can help me with any start up money i might need for my new job!!!
crazy eh!!! been down for so long,then in a matter of a few hours my life may have changed for the better!!!

i hope i don't sound selfish,but this was a 'good news ' story for me!!!
i still have that ball of positive energy in my gut,it is a renewable resource! so,i'm gonna spread it around to all i know,and yes,to the good folks at ATS as well.!

Great post!

Negative thoughts produce negative results and,
Positive thoughts produce positive results.

I want to hear about people who have given the ultimate sacrafice for truth, justice, or freedom.
I want to hear about people who give their time, energy, and money helping others.
I want to hear about people who remain true to their vows, whatever vows they have taken.
I want to hear about people who Love, not hate.
I want to know that our society will rise to the occasion and persevere in truth and love.

Come on ATS, LIFT UP HUMANITY!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the post - let's hope so.
Will see how may more people post, it's not the exciting doom porn we're addicted to, but let's be honest here all the hundreds of threads about the horrendous things going on, and we're all still here.
Yes life is not perfect but if we all focus on the bad we all forget there is good out there...
