There’s no need to believe that we live in a cynical world. Every day, regular people are doing amazing things for others, sometimes with quick thinking.

In this video, you’ll see people jump down into train tracks to help pick up people who’ve lost their footing in the subway. You’ll see a brave man in a wheel chair take down another man causing trouble in a convenience store. You’ll even see an older man stop an armed robber in a bank. All of it is incredible. There are even moments that are more tender, such as a truck driver stopping in the middle of traffic to save a small animal stuck in the middle of a busy street.

These are all reminders to us that we can all make small efforts that have huge results whenever we take a moment to serve others. We also should remember to live in the world outside of our own heads, because sometimes our personal worries distract us from catching important moments in the real world. Sometimes those distractions cause us to be the ones in need of rescuing.

What small thing can you do, each day, to make someone else’s life better? As one man asks himself in this video, “What is the purpose of your life?”

You’ve probably heard of lists called “30 Before 30″ or a “Bucket List.” These lists are intended to motivate the person to pursue several new things either before turning a certain age or before dying. Making a list for yourself can be a fun project, especially if it consists of things you haven’t done before and are looking for a reason to feel brave enough to achieve them.

These lists help us to challenge ourselves to perform important things before too much time passes. Routines can make the days blur together, and attempting to achieve the items you put on a “Bucket List” will add excitement to your life and help you create memorable moments.

You can find many examples of these lists online. Everyone’s list is different, of course. Not EVERYONE wants to go skydiving, I’m sure. But perhaps you want to do something that is particularly special to you, like ride a motorcycle for the first time or see the Grand Canyon.

Draft yourself a list of maybe 5 things you want to do before the year is over. Keep it realistic so that you can actually make strides toward achieving them. You can have a good friend help you on your journey to meeting these little goals.

You may not have to make a list to enjoy your life, but having a visual representation of the things you want to achieve helps you take stock of how far you make it. It’s fun to have people get excited with you and some will be very happy to help you make these items come to fruition. Once people find out that you’re trying to do things on a special life goals list, you’ll quickly realize that even strangers care about helping others find happiness.

At first glance, you just don’t know special details about a person’s life. Even someone in a suit may have a story to tell that you will never be able to guess at just by looking at his appearance.

In this video of homeless people in Orlando, we get a little glimpse into the very unique and special details about their lives. They share things about themselves that you would never guess about them based on their appearance and circumstances. It’s so easy to forget that we all have something that makes us special, and all too often, we judge our homeless population harshly and assume that they either lacked education or were brought down by bad habits. Here, you’ll learn that some people hold Bachelor’s Degrees, trained with professional sports teams, or are suffering health issues that we couldn’t imagine dealing with while living on the streets.

Just when you think the internet is a mean place, something beautiful happens.

On reddit.com, a grieving father posted a picture of his beautiful baby girl and asked if the image could be photoshopped to remove the breathing tubes. He just wanted an image of his daughter without the evidence of her hardships in the hospital. What he received from other reddit users was more than he imagined. Take a look at some of their renditions of his daughter’s photo:

These beautifully photoshopped pictures of the little girl gave her parents something to be proud of and it also connected them to other parents who faced similar tragedies. Internet forums, when used for positive messages, can be places where you’ll find solace and understanding while connecting with total strangers. It makes you realize that you’re not alone in your struggles when you hear from others who understand what you’re experiencing, especially when it deals with loss.
