The chilly and dark half of the year is getting closer and closer, so we all need a bit of extra warmth and light in our lives. Fortunately, human beings have the ability to do amazing things that lift up our spirits and make us warm and fuzzy inside. So to get you feeling like the world is a magical place full of wonder, Bored Panda has collected some of the most wholesome stories from around the globe.

Remember to upvote your fave ones, dear Pandas. Also, we know that 2020 has been a tough year so far, but we’d love it if you could let us know what positive things have happened to you in the comments. When you’re done with this awesome list, check out our latest uplifting posts here, here, and here.

Staying optimistic helps us deal with whatever storms might come our way and reduces the negative effects of stress. The New York Times puts it best when it says that optimism isn’t about ignoring negative feelings, but it’s all about being hopeful for what the future might bring. So you don’t have to smile if you don’t feel like it—all it takes is some hope. However, hope and optimism aren't the same thing, as psychologist, priest, and published author Dr. Fraser Watts told Bored Panda. Scroll down for our interview with him.

Today Oliver Stopped Me Dead In His Tracks And Turned Back Around To See This Picture That He Spotted! He Just Stared At It In Awe

Today Oliver Stopped Me Dead In His Tracks And Turned Back Around To See This Picture That He Spotted! He Just Stared At It In Awe

He recognized another boy like him, smiling and laughing on a display at Target. Oliver sees kids every day, but he never gets to see kids like him. This was amazing! I am so happy that other kids that pass through here with their parents, will see this! There is a lot of focus on representing diversity, but representing people with disabilities is just as important

According to Dr. Watts, optimism and hope aren't the same thing. "First, I need to make a distinction between hope and optimism, as Terry Eagleton does in his 2015 book called 'Hope without Optimism.' Optimism is more a matter of prediction. Hope is more a matter of attitude," Dr. Watts explained the difference between the two.

"In the present situation, I don't think there are any good grounds for optimism, and to be optimistic would be a retreat into a fantasy world," he pointed out. "However, even in present circumstances, it is possible and really helpful to maintain a positive, hopeful attitude."

Unfortunately, there's is no single surefire way of keeping that hope alive when things are tough. "Practice helps. It depends on a long process of cultivating a positive mindset. It is useful to be clear that hope does not depend on believing that everything is going to be fine. It is more an act of will."

Even though most people don't distinguish between hope on the one hand and optimism on the other, the internet is full of advice on how to keep your spirits up even if things seem incredibly challenging. One of the ways to stay optimistic even when times are incredibly tough is sitting down and thinking about all the things that you’re grateful for having. Gratitude journals can help out with this, even though they might sound cheesy.

There are other ways to maintain your optimism, too. For example, Select Health stresses that taking care of yourself is vital when things are hard. That means exercising, getting plenty of rest, setting time aside for your hobbies.

And, yes, that even means treating yourself from time to time: whether it’s sinking into a hot bath after a long week at work or sneaking in an hour of video gaming in between doing homework (we won’t tell if you won’t). When you do what you love without guilt or shame, suddenly the world feels brighter, doesn’t it? As long as you don't overindulge, of course.

Sadio Mane, The Liverpool Star Earning Approximately $10.2M Per Year Has Given The World A Lesson In Modesty After Some Fans Spotted Him Carrying A Cracked iPhone

Sadio Mane, The Liverpool Star Earning Approximately $10.2M Per Year Has Given The World A Lesson In Modesty After Some Fans Spotted Him Carrying A Cracked iPhone

His response is legendary:

“Why would I want 10 Ferraris, 20 diamond watches and 2 jet planes? What would that do for the world? I starved, I worked in the fields, I played barefoot, and I didn’t go to school. Now I can help people. I prefer to build schools and give poor people food or clothing. I have built schools & a stadium; we provide clothes, shoes, and food for people in extreme poverty. I give 70 euros per month to all people from a very poor Senegalese region in order to contribute to their family economy. I do not need to display luxury cars, luxury homes, trips, and even planes. I prefer that my people receive a little of what life has given me,” Mane said.

Things are always easier to bear when you’re surrounded by loved ones, Forbes points out. So even if you’re feeling down in the dumps or as blue as a Smurf, take some time to connect. Give your siblings a call or arrange to meet with a pal you haven’t seen in some time.

Nurse here. Had a coma patient for over half a year with high brain damages. Nobody ever thought her to wake up again. But she did. She remembered so many little details. Who likes who, who uses her electrical brush or the manual brush to clean her teeth. What my brothers name was etc.. Will never ever forget her saying her first Good Morning and making me almost poo myself. I am honored I witnessed this 'miracle'

It's true, I was in a coma and then in and out of consciousness for approx 6 weeks. I knew what was going on around me, even though sometimes it took me an hour or two to figure what was real and what was imagined. I heard the nurses gossip, my mother and father visiting, and everything around me. When they put ice around me during a fever I was hallucinating that I was elsewhere when suddenly I was surrounded by bags of ice etc. I still vividly remember much of this three years later.

I had my cousins hold the phone up to my aunt's ear while she was unconscious and dying in a hospital room, thousands of miles from me. She was my soulmate and kindred spirit. I told her that her love for me saved my life, and that I would carry that love forever in my heart. I told her how much she meant to me, and how I was going to miss her. I gave a eulogy at her funeral. The night of funeral, I looked up in the sky and saw a shooting star. I hope it was her, saying goodbye.

I'm really glad he heard his mom and did the same for her. My coma experience was different. The time part was the same. To me it was instantaneous. To my family it was 9 days of talking, praying, waiting and worrying. I know my kids, my husband and my friends all talked to me. They even tried to annoy me into waling up but I never heard anything. For me one minute I'm sitting at the computer playing a game when my arm started moving on it's own and the next I'm in a hospital bed and 9 days has gone by. It was a surreal feeling.

I did the same for my mother. She was put in a coma and before I left her for the day (they didn't allow me to stay longer), I told her what an amazing woman and mother she was, how much she taught me, how beautiful was seeing her and my son together, and how much I loved her. Though she was unconscious, she shed a tear, and I'm sure she heard me. That was the last time I saw her alive. I miss her so much ♡

My coma was a bit different, I was heavily sedated on profofol while on a ventilator after 3 cardiac arrests. I remember bits between the arrests, which they told me is strange, but I also remember bits and pieces of when I was out. Some of the things I heard, they got woven into a very intricate dream. Some of the dream was just complete crazy. But when they woke me, after they decided my heart had healed enough, it felt like a decade and no time had passed. And it was still a couple more days before I was completely aware.

No one is ALWAYS a good son or daughter. Dude did exactly the right thing when he was needed most. When my grandmother passed, she, too, was "asleep" first. On her last day it was clear she wasn't going to be with us much longer. I let my mom (her daughter) go get lunch, and I sang my granny's favorite hymns and read to her from the Bible. Just before my mom came back I leaned over to granny and whispered, "We will miss you, but it's okay, you can go on now. We'll see you again soon." It was like she was waiting for that permission to go. (My mom was having a hard time letting go of her.) She passed later that evening. I've always been glad I had that time with her, even when she couldn't respond. I know she heard everything.
