and this has been my experience,
17 years (pre 2013) ago I started experimenting with social media to find others who had the time to make the effort to interface & learn about themselves in different ways. I learnt things I could never have learnt any other way. Without going into intellectualized language the simplicity was. I needed to explore and examine facets of me to fulfil the rewards of living my life ‘worthwhile’. The strengths I have emassed have excelled learning’s I have had, otherwise – and contributed so far.
I have noticed, shaped & organised my positive attributes of resilience, empathy, curiosity, optimism & gratitude in a way that synchronizes the preferred life for me.
Anyone who has the courage to live their life on purpose moves unbarred in the universe in accord with one another. Thank you Michelle Barton for your invite to Link in.
