We live in unusual times, says Stuff. There’s a pandemic. The planet is dying. It all gets a bit much some days. So each weekday we’re bringing you a much-needed dose of positivity to remind you that there’s inspiration, kindness and quirkiness out there too. Check out their daily post of “The Antidote” and enjoy the adventures of a mannequin called Itsy Bitsy, a grandfather who’s joke won him a luxury hotel stay, and the success of the novels churned out by a Kiwi teen writer.
