Some good news to fuel your serotonin

Positivity seems like a crazy concept with the new state of the world.

While we may be trying to find some pieces of serotonin to cling onto, the news around us takes that away.

So just to give you your dose of serotonin for the day, here is some good news you missed out on this week.

New York turned a garbage dump into an oasis. 

Fresh Kills Landfill, which formerly used to be New York's largest landfill, is just one month away from reopening as an amazing park and recreation center. This park would be three times the size of Central Park! This project has been underway since 2001. This landfill site used to once be home to 150 million tons of trash, and now it has rolling hills and streams.

A bride and groom serve the homeless on their big day. 

This story melted my heart. With COVID-19 changing the way wedding ceremonies look like, this couple decided to change it even further. Tyler and Melanie Tapajna asked their caterer if they could provide food to Laura's Home, a local homeless shelter in Ohio. Melanie was in her gown, swapping her veil for a hairnet and Tyler rolled up the sleeves of his tux to serve the resident of Laura's Home.

The world's first "Happiness Museum" opened.

After COVID-19 dies down, we all need to take a trip to Copenhagen and visit their newest museum; a Happiness Museum. This museum doesn't just have smiley faces on the walls, it has exactly the things that make humans smile. A team of scientists and Think Tank sat together and decided to specifically pick exhibits that trigger the happiness chemical in our brain. There are also exhibits of things that make people around the world happy.

Nurses stay behind to care for intensive care babies despite the hurricane.

When Lake Charles, La. issued an evacuation because of Hurricane Laura, nurses at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital stayed behind to look after 19 intensive care babies. 14 nurses along with Dr. Juan Bussano hunkered down in the hospital to make sure the babies could receive the care they needed. When the winds spiked to 135 mph, the nurses and babies took to the hallways of the hospital, hugging the walls, making sure that the babies were safe. If this doesn't bring a smile to your face then I don't know what will.

An Orca who carried her dead calf for 17 days is pregnant again. 

Tahlequah, who was swimming with her dead newborn for 17 days and refusing to let it sink, is expecting! Many scientists are hoping that her new calf will survive the birth and thrive in the ocean waters alongside its mom.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
