Something so amazing happened yesterday, I thought I’d make a nice thread where people can put nice uplifting things that happened to them, or they saw or heard about. Everyone needs a lift now and again.

What triggered me to start this thread.

It’s actually gonna make some people gag but… something negative had something very positive happen within it.

- My neighbour called yesterday fairly early Saturday morning. (I was in my dressing gown producing music). Her 95 yr old husband was unable to move & was in a bad position of needing personal care, I said, no problem, call an ambulance and il go to my car and get some personal health care supplies from work I keep.

As my neighbour in need couldn’t stand or move, I needed help.

- My trans step daughter with tough learning challenges (Autism) had to assist me as my neighbour didn’t have any strength in his legs.
My step daughter is 18.
Ive done a lot of different NHS health care work in the last 5 years and I don’t think it’s conceivable to imagine anyone untrained to cope as well as she did,
-seeing a 95 year old man in the most un dignifying position imaginable of personal care needs. (I’m talking about the brown stuff being very much where it shouldn’t be. Yes ….that)

My step daughter coped incredibly. Didn’t get upset once, didn’t complain. Just did exactly what I asked her even though each time I said, you really don’t have to do this if you don’t want to but if you feel comfortable can we try this etc.

Afterwards an hour or so later, we hugged, she even hugged the man’s wife and looked so happy, smiling so much when she repeatedly thanked her.

Now I am more confident than ever that in the not too distant future she could be an incredible care worker or a similar job.

I couldn’t be more proud. ❤️.

In a few weeks her and her partner are moving out from mine and my wife’s home into the flat I own, I will rent it out to them.

Giving someone independence can sometimes be scary but is often necessary. Now I’m very confident that it will be much more manageable than I feared. They are the happiest I’ve ever seen them.
❤️

(my neighbour is doing okay now)

The music stuff obviously as some have already said.
Creativity of any form can come packaged with a large side of self doubt, so getting positive feedback from DJ's and other producers on your releases is always a good feeling. Seeing people going mad in a crowd somewhere to a track you've made is pretty special as well.

I've been working with this guy from Morocco for a few years now and he is genuinely one of the nicest people I have ever met. He's always upbeat, never has a bad word to say about anyone and is just one of those selfless people who will always go out of his way to help those around him.
He's only on a part time limited contract though, so times have been very tough for him financially recently.
He's tried on a number of occasions to apply for some of the full time, much better paid positions where we work but struggles with the interviews.
His English is fairly good but he struggles and panics under any type of pressure like interviews, so has found it difficult.

I spent some time earlier in the year on my break to sit down with him and go through some of the things needed to pass the interview process for higher grade jobs where I work. The interviews are somewhat structured, in that, while they feel less formal, the interviewers will have a checklist of things that they need from you, some of which is make or break. Mainly site policy on safety, allergens (food production industry standard stuff) and key performance indicators) None of it is difficult, but it can catch you off guard if you weren't expecting those questions or have not prepared for them.

Anyway, a couple of months back a job came up internally, he went for it and got it. He got the news while on shift and came over to me to thank me for helping him with an enormous smile on his face.

For me it wasn't a big deal. It was just just 30 mins out of my day to talk him through some of the key points and some good tips on how to remember them.
But it had helped him get the job and took a massive weight off his shoulder from his financial worries.

I'm genuinely happy for him. Good things happening to good people is always uplifting to see :)
