No longer behind- At my last post, I talked about not feeling left behind. That feeling came from embracing social media as a tool for furthering my education and enhancing my life. I can connect to all kinds of people, places and things. The good thing is , I can choose channels that best reach out to others. Don’t misunderstand, I have not become and expert just yet nor will I probably ever be. I’m just so happy I faced the social media monster and it didn’t eat me up.
To those of you who are like myself, step out of your comfort zone. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. I implore you to join me. Change is not easy but, it can be a meaningful journey that lead to wonderful places. I recall a friend who posts a lot on facebook . I admired her courage to learn social media and technology. She is so good at it and for years I watched in awe how she does it with so much ease. I never dreamed until I released my old thinking that I could do the same. I too can find gems and nuggets of information. Better yet, connecting to people means I connect to the world to find my own sources and sense of empowerment. Yeah, I’ll say it now. Social media can empower the late bloomers also.
Would I have come to this conclusion had it not been for Public relations courses? I honesty don’t know. I do know that you never find out unless you get out there where the information is. I am grateful for that. I’m most grateful that God has given me the makeup to always do better and often that requires a deep look at what is holding me back.
