Be great out there! While I don’t say those exact words to my family every day, I do get the message across. I think it’s so important to remember to encourage the people in our lives who mean the most to us – our family. The people who encourage us and who we encourage day in and day out. That’s why I’m always there to get my “be great” message across with a hug or a snack, whether it’s a home made cookie or a Nature Valley granola bar.
My Family Helps Me Be Great
If you’ve read any of my posts, you know that generally all that yummy food I make has a tie-in with family. That’s because my family is a huge part of my life. My Grandma taught me to bake, and my Mom is my rock. They’ve been there with me for everything from graduation to moves! I honestly don’t know where I’d be without them. I would venture to say, however, that my blog my be called “Baking Haggard Worn Out Chick” instead of “Baking Beauty”! They’ve always been there for me, which is why I try to always there for them.
In fact, when I look back at all my recipes, I don’t notice the photography or the words or even the finished product itself. When I look at my post, I’m flooded with memories. When I post a recipe, I’m really posting a memory. Baked beans are actually a memory of a great cookout. Chocolate drop cookies are actually one of my favorite Christmases. Family and friends are everything, and that’s what #BeGreatOutThere is all about!
Be Great Out There – Encourage Those Who Encourage You
My commitment to my family and how we hold each other up is one reason that I love Nature Valley’s #BeGreatOutThere campaign. It’s all about showing family and friends how much they mean to you everyday. General Mills Nature Valley and Facebook have partnered to encourage people to send messages of encouragement and support to the loved ones in their lives. They want to really drive home how important it is to celebrate our loved ones and their accomplishments, whether it’s landing a new job or just getting through a particularly heinous Monday.
I love this program because it’s an easy way to let someone know you care. Let’s be honest. We all know we judge how well liked we are by what our Facebook feed is doing. Right or wrong, we get a little jolt of excitement when we see a message of encouragement. So this campaign is the perfect way to encourage those we care about in this technological age. It’s super easy to let your loved ones know you think they’re going to be great with this campaign. Just share a short video on Facebook to let them know they’ll #BeGreatOutThere.
