It was such a blessing to affirm over 100 people throughout August as part of my #AugustAffirmations initiative on Facebook and on my two Twitter accounts. In the past few weeks, I’ve had a few questions about my intent to the tune of “Great idea…what made you think of it?” or “Why are you doing it?”
The answer is quite simple: I felt that I was getting too self-centered on Facebook and Twitter.
Now a few of you may be wondering what took me so long to figure that out…haha. And I think that mediums such as Facebook and Twitter are egocentric in their nature.
The purpose is to recognize and truly affirm some of the wonderful people in my life – whether they are family, friends, co-workers, ministry leaders, musicians, athletes, writers, speakers, Canucks bloggers, or all of the above.
It may be an individual, a couple, a family, or a group of people…and there likely won’t be rhyme nor reason. It won’t be in any particular order (except for my first Facebook one…haha) and exclusion from being mentioned certainly isn’t an indication of…well…anything really; other than the fact that I have limited days and I like to pretend I know a lot of people.
To keep it simple, I will be posting about:
Friends and family on my Facebook page;
Youth ministry leaders and speakers on my @claytonimoo Twitter page (not that they aren’t my friends); and
Canucks writers, fans, and personalities on my @CanuckClay Twitter page (again…not that they aren’t my friends…but conceivably not haha).
This should be fun…let’s see what happens!
