Positive People Day

Today is Positive People Day here in Massachusetts.  Positive People Day was started 10 years ago by Nancy Purbeck.  A unfortunate experience with a rude cab driver inspired her to create Positive People Day.  Positive People Day promotes the simple act of doing something positive for other people, whether that be sharing a smile, giving a hug, saying thank you, or other acts of kindness.

Positive People Day is celebrated every year on October 29.  And with October 29 falling on a Monday this year, what better way to start your week than with a simple act of kindness.  So give someone a hug, hold open a door, let someone squeeze into the line of traffic.

What simple acts of kindness do you perform during your day?

  1. Hi Amy, What a great story! I would like to try and make Positive People Day everyday. 🙂 -Karen

  2. That is Nancy’s goal too. Sometimes, though, we just a need a little reminder to be positive. We all have days where being positive it a hard thing to do but in the end we’re all the better for it. -Amy
