I think we can all agree that this has been a very crazy year with way more DOWNS than UPS and the continuous bad news has even bordered on the ridiculous and unbelievable.
But it’s all true, people…unfortunately…
But that doesn’t mean there isn’t time to turn things around and end 2020 on a positive note, know what I’m saying?
We still have some time to fix this mess!
So are you ready…?
Wanna get happy?
Then let’s take a look at these facts that AskReddit users shared.
1. Thank goodness.
“All those embarrassing/cringy memories that come flooding into your mind when you least expect it?
Nobody else remembers them.
Every last one of us has them, it’s part of this complicated process called living. While you’re busy remembering yours’, everyone else is remembering their own.
Its in the past, nothing you can do right now can make it any better; chalk it up as a lesson.”
2. That’s progress.
“About 65 % of America’s aluminum is currently recycled. Every minute an average of 123,097 aluminum cans are recycled. On average, Americans recycle 2 out of every 3 aluminum cans they use. The average aluminum can contains more than 50% post-consumer recycled aluminum.”
Its just aluminum but it shows that we CAN as a society recycle over half of the stuff we use and we can start keeping the world clean. That and a push to renewable energy would be nice.”
3. You’re far from useless.
“Your body is home to its own unique ecosystem, the human gut.
Sounds gross, but billions of little creatures living inside you are helping you digest things, dispose of waste, and survive natural toxins in the food you consume.
If you ever feel like you’re useless, or that your existence means nothing, that’s not true. You literally mean the world to your gut flora.”
4. Naps are good.
“Bees take naps in flowers!
So yeah, it’s okay to need a nap, even busy bees do.”
5. The great Mr. Lee!
“Stan Lee started creating the Fantastic 4, Spider-Man, Iron Man, etc.at around 40.
So even if you think that you can’t get anything out of life, you still can push yourself creatively and leave a lasting impact on the world at an older age.”
“Pillow fighting is a real, recognized sport in Canada.
It was founded in Toronto in 2004 by the Pillow Fighting League.”
7. Three good ones.
“A penguin was once knighted in Norway.
Blind people can smile even though they have never seen one. It is human nature. 🙂
The voice actors of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse got married in real life.”
8. Live to fight another day.
“Think of all the worst days of your life.
You’ve made it through every single one of them and are still going strong.
There’s always another day on the other side.”
9. Use it wisely!
“It is estimated every 10 years, the cells in your body will have been replaced with new ones.
Therefore, you get a new body every 10 years making it so you do get a fresh start.”
10. We’re lucky.
“Despite the fact that the universe is roughly 13.8 billion years old , you managed to exist around the same time as Bob Ross and Mister Rogers.”
11. That’s nice.
“If only 1% of the world population liked you, that would still mean 70 million people like you.”
12. The chain of life.
“If you’ve lost someone, and you feel like that are completely gone from you life, think about the impact they have had on you, on your loved ones, on others, and think of how that impact continues to live on throughout all of life, that impact won’t die with them either.
The chain of life goes on.”
13. Animal affection.
“Since animals have evolved next to human for thousands of years, they have learned to show their feeling towards us.
Dogs will wag their tag, lick you, step on your feet, press their body against your legs, lay on you, etc, all in effort to show affection and be as close as physically possible to you.
Cats make eye contact and slowly blink at you to say ‘i am comfortable, I am pleased’, they headbutt you as their form of a hug, they groom you as they would a kitten to care for you, they rub their scent on you to say ‘this is my human, all mine’ and it reassures them of your bond.
Cows will also groom you, and enjoy being pet as it is relexing and they truly trust you.
Also elephants get excited and happy looking at humans because we are to them as dogs are to us- they think we’re cute, and want to play and pet us.”
