I've pretty much stopped reading the news and I've never been one to watch it either. There are certain issues that I keep up on but for the most part let's be honest; the news is sad, depressing, disgusting and horrifying. I feel like the good things that happen in this world have little room to shine through. Those are the stories I want to read though. The ones about all of the strength and goodness in us humans that is still thriving. Each Friday I want to share an inspiring story or two. Hopefully it helps to end the week and start the weekend off on a good note.
I came across this story of Laxmi, an acid attack survivor and was just immediately inspired by her bravery and strength. A man threw acid on her face an body when she was 16 and soon after she suffered the loss of her beloved father. Most people in her position would, understandably, lay down and accept all feelings of defeat and depression. She felt those and then moved forward! She just landed her dream job as a TV news anchor and also found one babe of man that is the love of her life! It's people like Laxmi that prove that anything is possible no matter what you think your set backs may be! Read her full story and about her other achievements here!
