The Positopian

Hello Positopians,

Mandy and Jonathan here to say hi to all of you!

Every month we come to the Positopian and it's readers to remind ourselves of all the good out in the world. Some months are more difficult than others, especially when the world is in turmoil or when life is filled with uncertainty. But no matter how bleak things seem to get, there is always stories of hope, words of joy, and inspirational messages. Now, more than ever, we have to remind ourselves of the goodness of people out there, that for every situation filled with conflict and sadness there are also ones filled with the opposite. Where there is darkness, there is also going to be people bravely finding ways to shine light. 

There are some large things happening in the world right now but here are some tiny things to maybe make your day...

- M&J

P.S. - For those of you just joining, welcome to this edition of our monthly newsletter, The Positopian, where every month, we share positive news, fiction, resources, & insights to help you become the best version of yourself!
