7 Acts Of Kindness To Remind You That The World Isn't So Bad After All

Every time I turn on the news channel, there's nothing but bad news and negativity. The 6'oclock news is something I actively avoid, and this is because it doesn't reflect humanity the way that I see it every day. Every day I witness acts of kindness by the people I encounter: somebody complimenting somebody else's shirt, holding the door for someone, buying a meal for someone, sending notes to someone who was absent, and more. That is why I put together this list of good people doing good things all around the world. And next time you're reading the news, keep these stories in mind and remember, the world is not so bad after all.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.
