🐋 Desde pequeña he decidido vivir en libertad, porque así me he sentido siempre, libre...Por eso creo que hay tantas cosas que han fluido en mi vida de manera natural y relajada...Algunos me han preguntado cómo es que hago para vivir así sin temer a lo que otros puedan pensar de mí, y siempre les respondo que si pones el amor propio y tu dignidad ante todo, te darás cuenta que no hay por qué ocultar ese sentido de libertad con el que nacemos todos los seres humanos, si vas creciendo con los años, lo ideal es que te hagas cada vez más libre, y no al revés. Y siento que esto pasa casi siempre con la sociedad, es como si al crecer se hiciera más grande su caparazón (invisible por cierto) y se escondieran más de lo que nos hace humanos...en vez de soltarse, sentirse y expresarse tal y como son ✨ Les puedo asegurar algo...en cuanto sientan esa libertad tan mágica, jamás querrán retroceder y esconderse en ese “caparazón” otra vez. 🐋 #freedom#libertad#believeinyourself#live#magic#loveislove#whales#libresoycomodicelacanción
“It took a lot to get to where I am now… I went to school and graduated with massage therapy. I almost gave up but didn’t. I grew up in this neighborhood that I’m at. I left and came back… never thought I would… I’m a single mother, struggling, trying to make it on my own, but by the grace of God, I’m making it. I’m back in school, I’ve stopped for the time being, but I eventually have to get back so I can show my daughter not to never give up on anything. Life is hard without an education. I pretty much instill in her not to never give up on anything. People may put you down, but you have to believe in yourself before anybody else believes in you…”
I’m reasonably aware of the power of social media but I had an experience a few years ago that surprised me.
I popped into my bank to make a quick transaction. The assistant was super and a delight to speak to. So I tweeted the bank about her on my way out.
A few months later I was back at the same bank, having forgotten about the earlier tweet. The assistant at the counter was again smashing. A few minutes into the transaction she looked at me and said something along the lines of... oh my goodness, I know your name, you’re the lady who made the comment about me on Twitter, thank you so much, my boss made a big fuss of me and it was huge here.
Before I knew it the floor manager was sent for. I was introduced. The branch manager was summoned next.
The shaking of hands ensued. Pleasantries and expressions of gratitude were exchanged. The branch manager’s business card was flung eagerly in my direction. It was all very jolly.
And then I left, a conquering hero.
To be perfectly honest, I was somewhat surprised a red carpet hadn’t been laid outside to protect my royal feet from the pavement.
And it was all because of a tweet that had taken a few seconds to twoot.
The power and influence of social media is immense. For good and bad. And I often wonder if people forget there are real human beings at each end of the communication.
Online anonymity has created two worlds, often thought of as Virtual and Real Life.
Let’s remember it’s all real. Online is real. People are real. Thoughts are real. Feelings are real. And we have a real effect on other people.
Whatever we’re communicating about, whether it’s a bank or cats or cartoons, when we’re online let’s show respect, consideration and kindness to each other and to ourselves 💖
Problems will come, be ready to face challenges. People will use you, abuse you and throw you in Trash like garbage.... If you want respect, If you want people to treat you like a human then work. Give your best and be Successful... Stay focused ...Stat calm. Help each other... Don’t compete with each other, Compete with your own self 😎👍
