don’t just “like”… go do it

24Aug15

There is a certain social media platform these days where, just by the click of a button, you can show your favor just by saying “like”. The universal thumbs-up. Just a few weeks ago, when we traveled internationally, it occurred to me just how universal the thumbs-up has become, thanks to Facebook (whereas, in some parts of the world, a thumbs-up is the same as our American middle finger. Didja know that?)

How many of us spend our days paging through Facebook, seeing what the rest of the world is doing, clicking “like” when you see something interesting (“my friend is going kiteboarding? Cool! I wish I could do that.” “Wow, here’s an interesting recipe! I’ll make that one of these days.”) and you just scroll and click… scroll and click… liking… liking…

I encourage you: become your likes. Rather than sitting there constantly clicking the like button, why don’t you try one of the things you’ve liked (if you really want to try it)? Step away from the computer…

(Unless you are liking LAJK, a similarly-named outstanding restaurant we recently discovered in Dubrovnik. But I digress…)

Anyway, next time you’re sitting around and “liking” a lot of posts, see if there’s a theme. And then do something with it! (Something, perhaps, more active and world-changing than sitting in front of Facebook. Sorry, Mark Zuckerberg, but it’s time for someone else to be in the spotlight… 😉 )

What are you going to do today?

Maybe this is a good time for me to remind you of this…

Coming up in just over a month!

    I concur! We should, as you’ve written in another blog, give our lives meaning; and Dance MS does just that!
