There are some of those days that you need a "pick-me-up" to get through the day. One way to do that is to look at Instagram's #fortcollins pictures to make you feel positive!

I did a search of the pictures from the past week that used that certain hashtag, and the amount of photos that came up were thousands.

But what was also simply amazing was the amount of photos that made you either smile, laugh, or just made you feel really good.

Here are 10 Instagram photos, using #fortcollins, that stood out to me as doing just that. If these don't make you crack a smile, no matter how your day has been going, you may want to open up your mind just a little bit more.

These photos show every type of emotion, and is just a small example of the great things that are going on in our community each day.
