We especially love #6.

You don't have to be watching the news daily to know 2016 has been a year of political and social turmoil at home and abroad. Of course, It is very important to address the importance and gravity of these events, but in order to keep sane, we must also remind ourselves there is positivity all around us, too. 

Even in the face of unspeakable tragedies, you can always find some good in the world. We sometimes search for positive things that impact everyone on a large scale, but things on a micro level are just as important. 

To be a part of the goodness, do something nice for you fellow human being. Because the little things can mean so very much.
