Christmas, Hanukkah & New Years are right around the corner. Having celebrated Thanksgiving in November, we now are in a month of festivals that add meaning to the world. More festive meals, more shopping, more time with family and friends, more gifts. December has always been a time of reflection and introspection. As we get closer to making new year resolutions, we review the year that we have had.
2017 on HearMeOut was a great year. We heard your songs, your ideas, your thoughts and with each share we got to know you better, and you got to know the other members of the HearMeOut community and us better too.
Now we are preparing for a time of year of giving back. Whether it is giving back to our churches, synagogues, mosques and other religious institutions or giving back to each other. During this time of year, there is more conscious care for society than at any other time. The homeless are given shelter; the poor are fed, and money is raised for many noble causes.
At HearMeOut, we value how people can give back with their voices.
We can share our gratitude for the things and people that we have in our life. We can give compliments or share poems and songs with each other that make us feel good.
Sharing something positive creates a chain reaction. If one person on the platform shares something positive, then the chances are that another person will share positivity too and the trend becomes a hashtag, and the hashtag becomes viral. That is the power of what one voice can do.
If you are unsure about how to give using your voice then maybe start by resharing. One of the most special aspects of the HearMeOut platform is people resharing others content.
It is also always heart-warming to see people responding with encouragement to one and other on the platform. When someone sings a song, you don’t have to look too far in the comments to hear peoples praise and warm words.
If we have used our voice for criticism or gossip during 2017, now we have an opportunity to set things straight. It is amazing how influential the voice can be. Please share your compliments, good wishes and thoughts during this festive period. We look forward to continuing to see your voices grow in 2018!
