Why Thinking You’re Ugly is Bad for You.

The answer is ‘NO’.

Another answer is ‘It doesn’t matter’

That Friday feeling

Those of you that follow my little blog will know that I like to post a good news story on a Friday.

It often involves a charity or people just being good Samaritans – this one is both.

I happily admit to being a sucker for any kind of animal charity – dogs in particular – as I think they are one of the most beautiful, loving, trusting animals on the planet and it shames humanity that we don’t always treat them in the same way.

The video above was posted by Hope for Paws, founded by Audrey and Eldad Hagar who have been fostering hundreds of animals in their home for the past eight years.They created Hope for Paws to help animals in this the U.S. who suffer and die every year because of negligence and abuse.

The fact that the dog in the video was in no way aggressive, despite the fact that it had clearly had a difficult time, just makes my admiration for a furry friends grow even more. I think we could all learn a lot from them.

If you want to commit to a Random act of Friday Kindness, giving to or helping out at an animal charity could make all the difference.

Have a fantastic Weekend.
