Vanessa's friend said, "Maybe we should have one Facebook day dedicated to nothing but positivity - telling your friends and family how much they mean to you, sharing positive sayings, and linking to heartwarming stories. Anything to create the ripple effect of serenity."
This is how the idea for Post Positive was born.
We aren't going to be positive just on facebook. We are going to be positive everywhere... Instagram. Twitter. Pinterest. Blog posts. While talking to our kids. At the coffee shop. While driving in crazy traffic. During that phone call with our moms. Sitting in the pick up line at school. While talking to our spouses. When we see the frazzled parent at the grocery store trying to maneuver through the aisles with two cranky kids. Standing on the crowded bus or subway. And tomorrow night, when we are alone with our quiet thoughts before sleep claims us.
Post Positive isn't about being fake or stuffing down feelings. Bad things happen, and it is okay to have very real reactions to those things and reach out for support during those times. But for one day, we are going to look for the good things. Post Positive is a day to intentionally give smiles away. Look for, and focus on, things that make you happy. Be thankful and kind. Share good things with the people you love, the people you only see online, and the people you have just met. Be encouraging.
Help us create the ripple effect of serenity.
If you want to be positive with us, you can join the facebook event. Vanessa will be sharing some positive and happy news articles (they really do exist) to help you get positive posting ideas, but mostly it will be a good reminder that you aren't alone. When all of us spread positivity and love, it makes a difference.
Join the positivity revolution.
Let's get started a day early with a little practice.
