Positive News Stories…

“Weaving a web to our higher consciousness by creating a community to share news and inspirational perspectives to educate and broaden our minds, leading to a new awareness and a more perfect planet!”

Since this is the precept to which this blog is dedicated, I felt it was time to offer some uplifting, positive news and inspirational perspectives in light of the intensity of news of the past few months.

These are some of the headlines from one of my favorite uplifting news sources, Yes! Magazine…

I do believe that progress forward will happen in small steps from within communities rather than from our so-called “leaders” who have become lost in the wilderness. By sharing stories such as these, we can inspire one another to not lose hope in the goodness of people. After all, we are all in this together, and together we can find the way!

Blessings,
