A Facebook Birthday
Whether you’re a fan of Facebook or not, the reality is undeniable. No matter how you choose to spend your birthday (or any day), when the day is done and you check in to see what happened on your page, it’s impossible not to feel joy from the outpouring of greetings, messages and best wishes from friends near and far.
For this most recent birthday, I luxuriated in time with friends and family, dined on amazing food, and was showered with love and sentiments that overwhelmed me with tears and joy (for example, this homemade book from my daughter).
It is very easy to skim over your news feed each day and feel empty or lacking in comparison. But it is just as easy to “like” someone’s post, to connect with them in the simplest of ways and to spread positive energy. Going just one step further and taking the time to say something nice spreads an invaluable amount of good will, nourishment and happiness. If that were to become contagious, just maybe there would be more happiness and peace in the world. I know there was for me on this past birthday.
Heartfelt thanks to all who brightened my big day.
Eat clean live well!
