Social Media is an interesting tool that is certainly taking on many different uses. It’s building communities of like-minded individuals and connecting us to people from our past and to the businesses we patronize.
An interesting side effect is how it allows us to remember events and people that some of us may have forgotten or loose touch with over time. I remember when my grandfather passed away my uncle made a comment that an individual is always with us as long as we allow them to be. If we make a conscious effort to remember them and pass along their legacy, then even though they may no longer be with us, they will live in our hearts and minds for as long as we allow them to.
We are now building communities through social media that are sometimes like our extended families and because of this, there is many times when the collective group helps us remember and reflect about those who are no longer with us. Because of this, their spirit now has the opportunity to continue spreading their smiles and wisdom.
Let’s keep spreading the positive vibes because at the end of the day, it all comes around…
