This got me thinking. How do I use social media and the Internet? Do I use it to share goodness with others? Do I use it to encourage my fellow man? or do I use it to tear down, belittle, or make fun of?
The Internet is this amazing thing we have been blessed to have. We are growing up in a time of great technology. We have amazing knowledge at our fingertips to be researched and found. We have amazing programs that allow us to share the most intimate moments of our lives. We can literally capture all those little moments that make up each day. Whether it is on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, or a little blog like mine....we have power to reach people in a way that was never before seen in our society.
The idea that we have some sort of super power because of the day and age we live in really stood out to me. It made me wonder about how I use that power. Am I a hero or a villain? I hope that we are all striving to be heroes on this thing we call the Internet. Whether you have a blog, or a social media account, or you comment on the sites you visit...I hope you are a hero. I hope you use this power you have to send messages into the web for good. I hope that through our words we are choosing (because it is totally a chose) to encourage one another. We are all sinners. We all make mistakes. We are human and imperfect. I hope that we are trying to lift one another up. We will all have bad days. Days when life seems too hard to bare. What if when we tried to share goodness, we were able to touch someone who was having a rough day like that? What if that funny picture we shared on Facebook made someone's day a bit brighter? What if that inspirational thought or quote we shared on instagram, made someone feel a little bit stronger?
I hope that we all see how much influence we have in this BIG, wide world. We have value and our thoughts do as well. I pray this week that we can #sharegoodness, in whatever way we can.
Over the weekend I found a bunch of inspirational quotes, which I hope to share on instagram throughout the month. I am challenging myself to share more goodness each day. I hope you will do this as well. I hope that you will make an effort to surround yourself with things that are encouraging. Read encouraging things, think encouraging thoughts, and share encouraging messages.
Thank you for always coming to my blog, following me on social media, and watching my videos. Often I go back to my first ever post on this blog and the prompting I felt to start this little piece of the web. I pray that I continue to strive for that goodness.
I pray you have a beautiful weekend and know that you are an amazing person, who can do amazing things! Never forget that :)
