Our world, and the internet, are full of bad news that makes it easy to be a Negative Nancy.

With oil disasters, wars, criminal misdeeds and corporate scandals clogging our news feeds, it's no wonder people prefer to spend their web time scanning Facebook and catching up with shows on Hulu.

"Nowadays it seems all we see and hear on the news are negative events," wrote Domonique Burke, a blogger for Skirt.com. "I'm sorry, but I don't want to hear about bad things happening in the world all the time...Where are the positive, uplifting stories? The stories that make us want to better our own lives after hearing them?"

Well, these stories do exist -- you just have to know where to find them.

Despite its haters and trolls, the massive realm of the internet still has enough bright spots to improve any dark mood. Here are eight websites that feature positive and uplifting stories for people like Burke. Or you.

Who knows? They may even help renew your faith in the goodness of the human experience. Enjoy:
