If I had to pick a theme song for 2013 it would have been "Oh What A Night!" By Frankie Valli on Repeat over and over! Anytime I was asked for an autograph or photo I was perplexed because I am no one in the scheme of the Universe. But, I love my followers and the few people who found favor with me. I have never really been too star star struck even as a teen. Obviously MJ! Both of them- Michael Jackson and Jordan, and my very most super duper favorite celeb is #BillyGraham! I am in Love! Always have been since I rededicated my life reading #HopeForTroubledHeart at 19 years old.
My blog this week is about being really careful about using people, the wrong people as idols. We all love tv celebs, movie stars 🌟🌟✨✨and models. But the real celebs are policeman, firefighters, nurses (partial), teachers, your mom, dad, and veterans. How much time do YOU use trying to get to know them? People that really matter. People that really care about you. People that are vested in your future.
I care about the few followers I have and I want to be a positive influence. But the time we all use on social media needs to be diminished. Invest in the people in your face. Your baby sister. Your grandmother. The local boys and girls club. A local nursing home. 👵👵 Spread some positivity. It's free. We all have a little time to drop a baked loaf of bread at a homeless shelter. When I took lunch and water last week, the big hug I got was priceless.
These are the real celebrities. I don't want to sound preachy I just do not want y'all to get to my old age of 28 👻 and learn these lessons I'm learning! Go be blessed!
When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. (Proverbs 11:2 NIV)
