It’s easy to read or hear about negative things – the news is full of them. And thanks to our negativity bias, those are the things that tend to grab our attention. Sometimes I need to remind myself to look for inspiring and uplifting stories as well. Today let’s set time aside to do just that.
One good source for inspiring stories is Daily Good. The “everyday heroes” section in particular always has something to restore my faith in humanity. Or I might revisit an old favorite book; despite not being Buddhist, I enjoy the writings of Thich Nhat Hanh. There are also plenty of inspiring TED talks out there. Whatever your preference, book or video, old or new, find something today that inspires you. Then savor it.
