We all hear about the ways social media can be plain awful and annoying. It what about the positives? Allow me to go on...
Patience improver-When running errands recently it dawned on me the ease of mind when stuck waiting for something-a doctor's appointment, a friend for a meet up, while your significant other runs into a store.
Showcasing work-Or refining a hobby, whichever floats your boat. Having a digital display of your work is easier than ever and if you have something to show the world you should get to it! Life is too short not to make time for what you love to do and sharing that with the world should you wish to.
Staying connected-It really is awesome to stay in the loop with friends and family you don't get to see or talk to as much as you would like. For example, my youngest cousins who are twins are just 3 years old. They live in my hometown and I don't get to spend near as much time in their everyday world as I would like to. But I get to keep up like times never before because of social media.
Social media is a powerful, amazing, and beneficial tool for many reasons. I say we embrace the power of it's positive qualities and celebrate what it can give us.
