Dare to Share in Social Media

Pay it Forward ~ It's Contagious!
Shared by Renée Phillips

One of my favorite all time movies is “Pay it Forward”, with Kevin Spacey, Haley Joel Osment, Helen Hunt, Jay Mohr, and Jim Caviezel. It tells the story of a young student’s act of kindness and how it changed the lives of many. With his deed he asked for one simple thing — to “pay it forward”. His action perpetuated a series of positive acts around the country.

In terms of the spirit of generosity, I notice how other art professionals behave in social media. For instance, how much they share — not only their own art work and activities but those of others. I also observe how often people will take time to write positive comments about their social network friends and followers.

Artists are born with a compelling need to probe the depths of self-expression and proclaim self-liberation. The challenge that lies before them is no small task – to explore their innate creativity, fight the demons, ignore the critical voices, discover their strengths, push them to the max, and firmly place their inimitable handprint on the Earth with absolute conviction and no regrets!
