We hear it all the time — that the news so often feels hyper focused on conflict and negativity.

That's why WFAE is making an effort this year to find more stories about the good that’s happening in the world for our series, Finding Joy.

This week, we asked you, our community, to weigh in by sharing some of the things that bring you joy and why.

We heard from a variety of people from all over the Charlotte region, telling us about their hobbies, their pets and time spent with loved ones. Take a listen to a few of our favorite responses.

What brings you joy?
People across the Charlotte region shared what's bringing them joy. Give it a listen and go about the rest of your day with a little more levity.
