Leading up to Thanksgiving, each day I will blog about what I’m doing to be more grateful. I invite you to join me, and to share your thoughts, observations, suggestions and ideas.
Day Four: Sharing my gratitude
There is so much negativity and hostility online. It’s one of my least favorite things about the social Web. People feel empowered to spew venom that I don’t think they would ever share face to face.
This month, I’m going to counter the “epic fail” culture by infusing gratitude into my social media streams.
Gratitude journals are a wonderful, private way to reflect on all the ways I’m blessed each day. But I want to turn some of that outward and share some of the reasons I’m grateful.
Maybe it will remind other people of how they are grateful. Maybe it will encourage some to join us in a Month of Thanksgiving. Maybe it will do nothing but toss my little pebble of positivity into the ocean.
If you’d like to join me, would you like to post Facebook status updates saying thank you for something or someone in your life? And how about sharing your gratitude on Twitter using the hashtag #monthofthanksgiving?
