Ok so as far a July’s Spread the Love went. I think I did rather well. Truth be told I never realized how annoying and opinionated I was prior lol
I literally found myself holding my tongue a lot more than I anticipated. There were other times on facebook when people talking about issues really near and dear to my heart had my blood boiling, but then I’d realize, what is me commenting going to do – nothing. So I never posted.
On the flip side there were a few times I posted things and of course a reaction responded and then I found myself having to apologize for coming across in a way that was not intended.
I also let a few FU fingers slip towards a few random drivers and glared at a woman that slammed a door in my face. I yelled at my neighbours dog <—- a yappy little thing. Sometimes I want to buy a little dog just so I can show people it’s possible to have a small dog behave as well as a big dog but that’s neither here nor there.
I wish there was a way to have your opinions come through and remain honest with your feelings without everyone fighting you!
What’s that Logan in the bath?? There is??
That’s when I realized there is a way – the only way to remain true to yourself, while potential changing others and feeling good about everything you do – is to be the change you want to see in others (hmmmm maybe a spread the love Sept??)
I made the theme for August all about getting to love ourselves because I think you have to have a good relationship with you before you can have ones with others. I hope you’ll all join me this month as we try to build ourselves up
I also wanted to tell you why I wanted to start Spread the Love in the first place. Maybe that will encourage more of you to want to participate.
A while back I kept hearing these commericals on the radio – the people for good – I was super excited about it! FINALLY there was a movement dedicated to improving our love of humanity that seemed easy to join and become a part of.
The commercials were similar to my Spread the Love description, stating that they’d be changing the world, holding a door for one person at a time.
I go to their site and find this. A huge screen of people that have pledged to be a part of this but nothing much else that encouraged me, the new member. They had a list of nice things you could do, you could even add to it. However the problem was people could just leave the page and forget about it. There were no newsletters, no way others could update their own feedback, nothing to motivate me to change.
That’s when and why I decided to try and take on Spread the Love. I know lots of people think positivity is lame, forced, not genuine. Well I’m here to tell you that that’s not true. I happen to love everyone I meet. Yes, I am human and judge, get angry, make fun of people and do stupid crap all the time. However, I have the desire to change!
I wanted to provide a space for people with that same desire could share ideas and become a part of something bigger.
That’s why I am asking you – PLEASE! if you like this idea, if you want it to be great, if you want it to work I need your help. I need others stories, others input and ideas! One person can’t see as clearly as multiple individuals. SO please contact me, submit an idea, a confession, a story and let’s make Spread the Love a great thing to be a part of
I’ve updated the Monthly Challenge page as well and my blog’s side bar. So if you have a challenge you’re running this month let me know and I’ll post it up!
I hope you’ll all join me for the Plank it Up August Calendar I think it’s going to kick my butt! I’ve been having some technical difficulties with the vid so it should be posted by tonight
1. is this a loss cause?? why don’t people want to change for the better?
2. any ideas on how to make STL better?
