(Note circa June 2017)
I think social media is an incredible step in human evolution.
I love it.
And not just because it allows anybody who’s willing to put in the work an opportunity to build something meaningful (though that’s cool).
Social media allows positivity, inspiration, and knowledge to pass hands darn near effortlessly.
I was thinking about it today—there are SO many people diligently and lovingly contributing content to make other people’s lives sunnier, funnier, or easier.
That’s pretty awesome.
I know I tend towards overly optimistic,
And I’m cool with it,
‘Cause it’s an easy win when compared to the opposite stance,
But even considering the heavy rose-colored tint on my screen,
It’s still a decisively up-lifting environment.
Again I say, that’s pretty awesome.
I look forward to watching it spill over into non-digital life as we become more comfortable with the idea that other humans are pretty similar in big things (we all wanna be loved and do good, we sometimes feel scared, and we often don’t know wtf we’re doing) and are interested and excited about the differences in little things, both to share and to learn.
It makes for a interesting and shiny new age on earth.
Just think of the incredible things people will be able to do when they feel supported, safe, and loved.
What an exciting time to be alive.
