What exactly is connected with spirit all about? Well in one sense it is my next website that is about to take flight! Last year as I developed a wonderful base of friends and followers through the gift of social media, I have found myself connecting with the most incredible souls worldwide! Most of these thousands of folks have one thing in common. They are all connected with spirit in one sense or another.
I truly believe that is why so many individuals have joined with me in such an incredibly short time. Within six month of developing a Facebook page I had 4,000 people join with me and want to be friends! Talk about the viral effect!
A few months ago, I came to a realization. I couldn’t remember the true appreciation I had for each person when I agreed to be friends. So my new mission became a small challenge each day to get to know each and every one of you. How did I do that? I decided to look at everyone’s birthday each day on Facebook and wish them a happy birthday! Of course for any of you that know me or have had a happy birthday from me, I can’t just write happy birthday! I look at each person’s picture and write something to the effect of, “Wishing you a most fabulous, joyous, and beautiful birthday today!” And I sign it with my trademark, “Much love and light my friend” What has happened by doing this each day? After my soul greets their soul through their photo, I look at all the information again they have posted and REMEMBER why we gravitated to each other in the first place! I look at their website, LinkedIn profiles or read about any books they’ve published, AND I write all of this down about each person.
My thought is why be connected with so many fabulous friends if you can’t fully appreciate and know them. That just seems silly to me!
So what has happened from this? Well, I now have about 1,500 of my 5,000 friends information written down for me to peruse when I need to. I use this information to pull wonderful guests for my blogtalkradio show, to contact when I need certain services and now I am connecting with those I particularly feel a kindred spirit to in helping get their work out to many through my next website “Connect with spirit!”
There’s much more on how this will happen coming soon, but I just thought I’d let you know how much I have grown to love, admire and appreciate those friends that I have made through social media!
Do you know all of your Facebook friends? Do you want to?
