National Girlfriends Day-The Blessings from Social Media

I recently joined a wonderful community called Social Media Girlfriends. Please visit their website, especially if you would like some #divadust! 


All you have to do is enter your name, email address and Twitter ID to claim their badge!  Just place the badge on your blog and join in on the #SMGirlfriends fun!


The song they chose for the introduction on their website is Only You by Joshua Radin. It is so appropriate for their mission.  They are creating connections through Social Media,”So you can feel loved. So you can feel supported. So you can feel connected.”  As a member I have felt all of those! 


When I saw this video this morning I thought of Social Media Girlfriends and all they encompass.

Make sure you turn on your volume to watch!

Like the geese in the movie, their Twitter messages are so uplifting.  They carry each of us higher so that we too can soar. 


You may be dealing with either stress, pain, sadness or loss and when you open your account you are flooded with hope and love.


In the movie, Pulling Together 10 Rules for High Performance Teamwork by John J. Murphy it states, “If we share a common direction and a sense of community, we can get where we are going more quickly and easily because we are traveling on the thrust of one another.”


If for some reason we fall out of formation, like the geese, the messages from these awesome women help us get back on balance!


Although I have only been a member for a short time, I have witnessed the power of these messages firsthand.  They will celebrate with you when there is a joyous occasion and they will virtually hold your hand during an illness or a loss of a child or a parent.


Today is National Girlfriends Day, who do you know that needs to be uplifted with a little dose of inspiration, love and a sprinkle of #divadust?  

Although I am an affiliate of Simple Truths, by simply watching the video I will not receive any compensation. Please see the Disclosure tab for additional information. Thank you.
