Time to find some hope in this trash year.

A Tumblr user has gone viral after she compiled a list of positive things that have happened in 2016. It's pretty comprehensive!

Tumblr user helthehatter put together this list on Tuesday, using points from a similar Reddit thread from July, and some of their own experiences.

...the people who dressed as angels to block members of Westboro Baptist Church from protesting the funerals of the victims of the Orlando nightclub shooting...

While some of the facts in the post may be a little off, the sentiment has clearly had a positive effect – since Tuesday it has received over 170,000 notes.

Helthehatter told BuzzFeed that while the post may not help everyone, they are "overwhelmed" with the reaction.
