I belong to a Facebook group called #upbeatauthors. It was the brainchild of an author who was feeling (like many of us) overwhelmed by the negativity on social media. Her idea was to have a safe place where we could go to share positive outlooks, and uplifting words.
A whole bunch of us jumped on board of course, and we’ve grown to nearly three hundred members.
What do we do there?
Our leader has posted a theme for every week right up to the end of the year, and on Mondays, we post something positive, related to the theme.
Want to know the coolest thing about this group? In the beginning, many of us struggled a bit to come up with something to write, or share by picture, but as the weeks have gone on, so has the participation, and the ease with which the positivity flows!
Also cool, that when I remember to put my #upbeatauthors post on my own page, it often gets shared around Facebook, so I feel like I’m contributing to making the world a happier place. (Call me Pollyanna if you must, but I’m happy there!)
Here are a few of my favorite posters:
Your favorite historical figure
Ways to show the important people in your life that you love them in simple ways
Places you would like to go, and why
How to work smarter
Living in the moment/mindfulness
Turning a negative into a positive
When one door closes, another opens
Ways to be kind to yourself
How to deal with busy holiday season
Watch for a new #UpbeatAuthors post every Monday on my Facebook page, and see if you can resist the good feeling that comes from a positive heart!
Kat loves crisp sunny days, the warm breath of a horse, cats with a sense of humor, the smell of the ocean, and her very own charming prince—in no particular order. http://kathrynjane.com
