Initially, I was resistant to being on Facebook when Poppy daughter first created a Facebook page for me, and the page lay dormant for a few years, with little input from me. And then over time I felt comfortable with using Facebook, and loved sharing from the heart, and loved others also sharing from their heart on this page, and also listening to others viewpoints and learning from people who have shared or spoken out or corrected (thank you).
When Facebook numbers grew to the first 100 likes WOW, and then to 200 Likes WHOOPEE and at 200 likes I decided how I wanted this Facebook page to be and wanted this page to have a community feel where people could feel comfortable for hanging around but could also exchange ideas freely and be respectful to others. And when I reached the big milestone of 1000 likes AMAZING, and numbers kept growing, when reaching 1200+ likes Facebook did a re-scramble and many business pages that had numbers over 500 were grumbling they were losing numbers real fast, my numbers slid down to below 1000 but have steadily risen since then, numbers of likes are now approaching 1,800 AND SOME WEEKS I have 23,000+ visits to the page (the number of times the page has been visited in one week) and the page has held the community activity due to exchanges of ideas & sharing …
So so thankful for all the likes, for all the inputs,for the outrage we have felt at times due to some posting, for the inspiration, for the passion, and also for the laughter, and LOVE. And big thanks for when I ask your opinion the response that follows is wonderful. Sending you all love and big thanks to everyone who has liked, and contributed through comments, who has shared views openly & shared through constructive feedback, and also shared the postings & posters on their own page, or tagged their friends.
A couple of years ago, I actually added this info to Impressum on Facebook page as I had came up with Vision, Mission, Motto & Objective on what I wanted the Facebook page to represent, and this still holds true for today:
To have a page where people can express how they feel but are also respectful to others, a place to share their love for animals & for the environment
“My dedication is to a vision – a vision of beauty, love, joy, trust, humanity and BALANCE FOR ALL” – Faye Rogers
To share with others (humans) how to reconnect with their own power of self – encouragement without limitation.
To deepen the bonds between humans & animals by sharing & encouraging others (humans) how to be in touch with the Animal Kingdom – to bring balance, awareness, harmony between humans & animals.
To raise awareness & consciousness relating to animals, people, humanity and the environment.
To work towards deeper peace for all – humans, animals & environment.
To share awareness that we humans have been entrusted to care for others but also entrusted with being who we truly are – not being influenced by how others think we should be but of stepping into our true SELF with PURPOSE as SHINING LIGHTS; our purpose is to be true to ourselves so that we can be true to others.
To be the vessel for the animal’s thoughts, feelings, wisdom & humour and to encourage others to listen to the Animals, listen to Nature that surrounds them with respect & caring.
