It’s pretty hard to be positive right now.
Many people are struggling and the seemingly never-ending wave of bad news is hard to escape from on most days.
But when you look below the surface, you’ll notice that things aren’t so bleak and that people are really going out of their way to be kind and decent to each other right now.
This tweet got a whole bunch of people talking about the nice things they’ve seen lately.
Here are some examples that we think you’ll appreciate.
And why don’t you go out and some of this in your own life too! It’s good for the soul!
1. Hopelessly devoted to you.
That’s very sweet.
My dad leaves notes for my mom around the house and will sign them “hopelessly devoted, your man”

2. Uplifting thoughts.
A lovely gesture.
After my mom passed my male bff put hearts, glitter and uplifting thoughts on my door. Now Im doing the same for him during a hard time. This might be our new thing and I live for that type of support. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/j6ZrwocuIr

3. We should all be doing this.
You need to see the folks who are important to you in any way that you can.
I haven’t seen my dad in months because of quarantine so a few weeks ago he showed up to my house out of no where with bags full of all my favorite foods and candies and he even went to my favorite restaurant and got my favorite meal and we had a six feet apart picnic 🥺

4. Your husband was all over it.
What a nice day!
Yesterday was my birthday and I thought I would do a belated spa day when things re-open. My husband was already on it — he presented a basket with face masks, bath bombs, sugar scrub, lotions… did a face mask with me, gave me a mani pedi, and pampered me. ☺️ the BEST

5. Madly in love.
A beautiful photo.

6. The kindness of strangers.
Sounds pretty sketchy to me.
I had a sketchy couple come in when I worked 3rd shift at a gas station and another man I didn’t know came in and stayed with me the whole hour and half they were there just to make sure I was safe.

7. Now we’re all crying.
Still in love after all these years.
I was leaving the grocery store and I saw an elderly man hiding flowers behind his back and then surprised his wife, who was waiting in their car with their dog, with the flowers and I cried

8. Those precious first steps.
You’ll remember these moments forever.

9. A secret admirer, perhaps?
A smooth move on his part.
i was having a bad day recently so a boy dropped off a succulent at my front door with a note that said “sorry your day sucked, here’s a succulent!” 🥺🥺🥺 anyway i’m betrothed now

10. Time to celebrate.
My housemate at uni got all of the girls in the house flowers for International Women’s Day 💕

11. That’s when you knew.
The one and only…
2 weeks after we met, my now-fiancé called and asked if I was studying for finals. Then he knocked on my door with a dozen cookies from my fave local shop, handed them to me, and went home so I could keep studying. It was pouring outside and he lived 30 minutes away ❤️

Those posts are really nice, aren’t they?
I know that I needed a little dose of wholesomeness today.
Now we want to hear from the readers out there.
In the comments, tell us about an act of kindness that you’ve witnessed lately.
Maybe it happened to you, or maybe you’re the one who went out of your way to be nice to someone.
We look forward to hearing from you!
