It’s officially Memorial Day weekend, and there’s no better way to kick yours off than by looking at some uplifting content. Who doesn’t love to spend hours scrolling social media to find those moments that make us smile? Here are our three favorite positive stories for the ninth-edition of our weekly Feel Good Friday Roundup series!
1. Victory Brinker Dishes on Being the World’s Youngest Female Opera Singer
It’s never too early to achieve your dreams. In fact, Pennsylvania native Victory Brinker has a passion for opera that’s taking her to big stages at just 10 years old.
Brinker was first named the world’s youngest female opera singer when she was seven. Since then, she’s achieved career heights such as participating in season 16 of America’s Got Talent (AGT). While on the show, she became the first-ever contestant to receive a golden buzzer from all of four judges and the host.
In the video below, Brinker sits down with CBS Mornings to discuss the moment she knew she could sing, her experience on AGT, and more!
2. Michigan Woman Spreads Signs of Kindness Throughout Her Local Community
A little kindness goes a long way. Retired teacher Lisa Jahnke of Marquette County, MI is reminding her local community of this by posting yard signs with heart-warming messages such as “Believe in yourself,” “You have a lot to offer,” and “You can, you will.”
The inspiration for this project came after Jahnke visited Richfield, UT and saw another woman writing uplifting messages when the city was going through a tough time. In a new interview with WLUC, Jahnke explains the impact that placing these signs throughout Marquette County can have on residents.
“When people walk through and see these signs, they know there are people who are listening and care about them,” she says. “Whether people are struggling or not struggling, I think it’s nice to know that there’s kindness out there.”
3. YouTuber Shares a Touching Moment While Honoring Her Late Dog
Losing a pet is hard on everyone. But YouTuber Natalie Franko Larason found a silver lining in the experience while scattering the ashes of her beloved late pup, Biscuit, in a video she posted earlier this month.
“When scattering my Shepherd/Collie dog’s ashes, I was astonished to notice that the shape they formed looked exactly like her. I took it as a sign of her final goodbye and cherish this video,” she writes in the description box.
This surprising moment has been healing for Natalie, and she expects it could have the same effect on anyone watching. “I hope my fellow animal lovers take comfort in this video, as I have. Rest in peace my sweet Biscuit, I’ll meet you at the Rainbow Bridge,” she concludes.
We hope you enjoyed the ninth-edition of our weekly Feel Good Friday Roundup. Have an inspiring and joy-filled weekend!
