Hi, it’s Sue McVeigh, VA, and it’s day 32 of my Facebook Live Challenge. I was looking for some really interesting and fun facts or fun tidbits to put in my social media and for my clients. And I came across timeanddate.com and it was holidays fun. So I thought, “Oh, I’m all about fun. You’ve got to look into this.” So one of them was that today is Roald Dahl Day. So he is, was a children’s author, very, very famous children’s author, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Matilda, which I didn’t read as a child, but my kids introduced me to the movie, the DVD. And I was choosing a couple of quotes today to share. One of them I did share on Instagram and Facebook. If you want to have a look over there.
It was, “Somewhere inside all of us is the power to change the world.” And I think that is really, really very apt for our time at the moment with the world and just, if love and kindness could heal, it would just be such a better place. So just made me, yeah, made me think what a lovely quote for today. And there was another one from Matilda and it was, “Never do anything by halves if you want to get away with it. Be outrageous. Go the whole hog. Make sure everything you do is so completely crazy it’s unbelievable.” And I just, I love these quotes and you know, you’ve got to play hard. You’ve got to go out there and do it. You’re worried about what you’re going to post on social media? Do it. Just keep posting, keep sharing because somebody out there, it will mean something to them.
And then you just keep sharing and sharing. And you just don’t know because social media is about connection. Life’s about connection, but social media is about connection. So it’s who you’re going to resonate with, who you’re going to connect to as a person. So it’s just sharing, it’s putting yourself out there and not being worried about not being liked or not sharing the right thing. Just keep sharing because then when people comment, when they share it, you will see what works and what doesn’t. So this is a lot that I’ve been learning lately about social media.
But yes. So Roald Dahl Day, just wanted to… It’s the actual, the anniversary of his birthday and it’s an unofficial holiday, but I am going to claim it and just say, enjoy. I enjoyed reading his books as a kid and reading them to my kids and now they’re reading them to me. So yeah. Thank you. And I will see you tomorrow. Bye.
