An unlikely beautiful friendship


We often don’t think of giving someone directions as an act that can be life changing. But in this case, nothing could be closer to the truth. Late one night, Anita Hughes got lost on her way home from a gospel concert. She was so turned around that she had to stop at a local convenience store to ask for help. Jason Wright, a customer at the store, went above and beyond to ensure Anita found her way home, and his simple act of kindness opened the door to a friendship that would never have existed without their chance meeting.

“Just a little bit of appliance of affection can change a whole situation.”

Celebrating the small things

We get so caught up in waiting for that next big thing. But often times, it’s the small things in life that make it worth living.

Take this dog, for instance. If you’re a dog owner, you know a trip to the dog park can be the ultimate treat. But this pup’s level of excitement is pretty incredible — not to mention, hilarious. Watch as he realizes his surroundings and goes completely bonkers.

Awesome!

The truth inside you: Give to others

On the surface, Mark Reay lived an enviable life as a high-end fashion photographer. In reality, he slept on the streets of New York, a homeless man. A model, photographer, and actor, Reay had jobs that gave him prestige but very little money, and he ended up on the streets for six years. Speaking to entrepreneur and quadriplegic Franceso Clark, Reay describes his tough journey and how giving to others gave him peace.

When you really ARE making a difference

SoulPancake invited five teachers and a coach to talk about the challenges of being educators. They all expressed their hope that they were making a positive difference in their students’ lives. The teachers are shocked when their students walk in and read letters about how much these special teachers have impacted them. I love when the basketball coach’s entire team shows up at 2:46.

A skydiving Amish man

Jebediah Jacobs, a young Amish man, decided to do something completely out of his comfort zone. During his Rumspringa, or adolescent discovery time, he decided to go skydiving in California. As someone who had never even been on a plane, let alone dive out of one, he bravely rode up and then, with his instructor, leaped off, straw hat and all! What was his reaction after returning to Earth? Well, you’ll just have to watch to find out.

AWESOME!
