We all have influence, the question is, what are we doing with it? One Sunday our pastor really challenged us to look at how we are influencing others. I will never forget his message because that sermon is what inspired me to start using social media to encourage people to make healthier choices in their lives.
I am sure I am pretty irritating to my Facebook friends. Like, seriously, you’ve got to be kidding, another picture of vegetables, climbing, and a fruit selfie!!!! I do this because I care, and I want to be a voice for nutrition that can help others if they want it. When I needed help social media was invaluable to me.
The idea of influence went deep into my heart in a way of conviction. As I reflected, I realized I could do more than just the occasional speaking engagements and raising children. I had stumbled on to good health and I felt like it was time to share. I decided to be super honest on FB with a desire to help others.
Reality television starts off raw and interesting, but once it becomes popular it seems more scripted and less like real life. We can accurately portray real life when we are willing to be honest. If something is working for us why wouldn’t we want to share it? To not share and keep it to ourselves seems selfish.
My IG is amazing because I follow really healthy brilliant people. It is like having a health magazine made especially for me! I get so encouraged and now there are video clips which make it even more awesome!
FB has to tolerate me, but you guys choose to read this blog and for that I am so grateful! I know I plaster a lot of pictures of myself and I do have a reason behind my madness. The reason being, I want you to see that I am 52 with wrinkles, 6 children, 1 great dane, 1 old dog, 1 grand dog, 00 grandchildren, and 1 hot husband!(forgot 1 snake, yuk!)
Thanks for influencing me with your kind comments and tagging me in your fruit selfies. I love it! I am living healthy out and hoping to influence as many people as I can. Being right now raw is too awesome not to share!
