Yesterday I read a post on the dreaded Facebook from the gorgeous, talented and inspiring author, John Larkin. He revealed that he’d been the victim of some online bullying and, to show the trolls where they could shove it, instead of getting angry or upset, he bought a goat. Not for himself. For a family in need in a developing country.
I’m not as awesome as John. When I went through a similar sticky situation myself, a couple of weeks ago, I did get upset. The whole thing darn near broke me. And I didn’t buy a goat.
But I’m inspired by John. And I can’t afford a goat. But I can afford a chicken. So I’m going to try and forget the haters. And I’m going with the cluckers. I encourage you to do the same.
Shake it off. With help from Oxfam. It really does make a difference.
