“I would love to take LSD but I'm a mom.”
 

Helloooo Mama! 

I did a Facebook Live session this week and almost immediately afterwards I got Messenger notes from my friends saying the best line was "I would love to take LSD but I am a mom."  LOL!!  🙈  
And ummm... no I am not into this microdosing trend.  (I even have one SAHM friend who is interested...)

Truth is maybe we need some extra help with productivity.  I get it.  My girlfriend opened up the convo this week with a simple "hey sorry I have been MIA..." She was missing because she has family drama going on, then another chimed in and mentioned caring for her sick dad, another has new babies in the household, another is expecting a baby, 2 friends are selling their homes, another moved just moved into a new home.  On and on and on.  And for me, my baby went to the hospital AGAIN. (She's okay now.)  
All the while we are BUILDING businesses.  Real and solid businesses.  

I just wanna say Good Job you!

PRAISE.   Continuing the goodness all around...

GIVE.  

--> Facebook has just become gone from being a kid wanting to be popular to becoming a thoughtful parent. 

"We used to have a sense that if we could just do those things, then that would make a lot of the things in the world better by themselves," Zuckerberg told CNN Tech. "But now we realize that we need to do more too. It's important to give people a voice, to get a diversity of opinions out there, but on top of that, you also need to do this work of building common ground so that way we can all move forward together."

The company even has a new mission statement: "To give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together."
