When you think of Facebook in its current form, you probably think of countless fights that happen in the comments section where people are discussing politics or sports. However, there are plenty of people on Facebook who are choosing to stay away from the negativity and the fighting and instead focusing on bringing positive vibes to their followers. If you want to get a daily dose of wholesomeness and self love on Facebook, here are the five pages you must be following.
5. Power of Positivity
Back in 2009, Asheville, North Carolina natives Kristen and Chris Butler co-founded Power of Positivity to help people get rid of the negative thoughts throughout the day and focus on their mental health. According to Kristen Butler, “Our vision is to plant, nurture, and grow positive energy in the hearts and minds of everyone. It’s our goal to uplift the planet!” So far, they have done just that. There are now well over 30 million people following the page on Facebook and liking posts such as “3 months from now, you will be in a better situation. Claim it.”
4. Elizabeth Gilbert
Do you remember the book “Eat, Pray, Love” that helped to inspire millions around the world to focus on themselves instead of the regular hustle and bustle of life? That book (which was turned into a popular Julia Roberts film) was created by Elizabeth Gilbert, and it was a memoir of her real life. Gilbert has used her notoriety in writing to create a Facebook page where she continues to spread positive messages. This includes promoting other self love books, and she now has over 1.7 million followers on her Facebook page.
3. Steve Maraboli
New York native Steve Maraboli has been a consultant and public speaker for many major companies throughout his career that has spanned multiple decades. Maraboli has a strong online presence, as well, with nearly 1 million followers on Facebook alone. Maraboli is known for being quoted countless times with his helpful advice. “If people refuse to look at you in a new light and they can only see you for what you were, only see you for the mistakes you’ve made, if they don’t realize that you are not your mistakes, then they have to go,” he says.
2. Doe Zantamata (Happiness In Your Life)
Doe Zantamata is an author that has written several books to bring people motivation and inspiration, and she has inspired millions (4.3 million on her Facebook alone, in fact) to also see the happiness in their lives. Some of her more popular quotes include “It is only in our darkest hours that we may discover the true strength of the brilliant light within ourselves that can never, ever be dimmed.” She has also noted that “Taking time to do nothing often brings everything into perspective.”
