Sometimes when you turn on the evening news after a long day of work, the world can seem like a harrowing place. Distressing things happen every day, and unfortunately, it’s just a grim reality of life.
However, to quote Isaac Newton’s third law of physics: “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” And I feel this rule applies to times when things become a little too much to bear, and life decides to test our endurance.
So to help remind you that there is still good in the world, and serve as your daily dose of positivity, here are 13 images of simply nice things. Captured are both actions and gestures of people doing things out of the goodness of their hearts because it’s who they are. I hope they bring a smile to your face.
