The other day, I was having a conversation with a friend regarding the negative and oftentimes frightening stories that the mainstream media seems to favor. Both of us were talking about how those negative stories, while they may be important, are often sensationalized way beyond the point of rationality are seemingly designed to have an adverse effect on us. And unfortunately, it works.
In thinking about creative solutions for combating the negativity, I mentioned that the power of social media turns each of us into a form of media delivery. We are in control of so much of the content that is put out into the world. In that sense, we have the power to shift the conversation to a more positive place.
Although we still rely on journalists and TV personalities to be messengers for the headlines in the news, as bloggers, tweeters, Facebook junkies and loyal Instagrammers, we are equally as powerful. We are the media.
Maybe you’ve never really thought of yourself in that way, but if you have a blog, you are the media. If you have a Twitter or Facebook account, you are the media. You are posting messages in real time about what’s going on in the world, what’s going on in your life, and what’s going on in your heart and mind. At your fingertips is a tool more powerful than you may have recognized. With this power, however, comes responsibility. We must take ownership of what it means to be a messenger.
If you’ve landed on my blog then in some way you are engaging in a conversation of personal growth and spiritual development. And as so many of you are users of social media, we collectively have an opportunity to put forth positive, empowering content.
