The IG Post That Went Viral

SO, it's hump day and we're likely all celebrating Friday being closer, but I'm also celebrating my little instagram post that went viral. It feels like half of the world has loved and reposted it AND it's full on wildfire has resulted in me being locked out of functions on my own instagram account. I've been saying this for years, I wonder if some of my design school friends would remember, my boys certainly do. Anyways this is how it all went down. I posted the gram below because I'm always hoping this kind of stuff will make someone happy. Then....
I'm going about my business posting happy positive things because that's just what I love to do. 
After all, for those of you who might have forgotten, MOTH stands for Making Others Truly Happy. 
A bunch of lovely people who follow me @ecmothdesign reposted and someone tagged me and shared that.... 

Kelly Rutherford had reposted (here). Yes, I cannot even tell you how much I love and admire her... 

Wait, contain the love Erica, 
then Estelle. Ya, you read right ESTELLE! Another strong amazing woman. (here

Oh wait, wait for it... Then Swizz Beatz. Um....holy  A W E S O M E! (here)

And then as if my mind wasn't already completely blown... Twitch too! (here)

The way my mind works those are my 6 degrees to the epicenter of postive- ELLEN and The Ellen Show because I'm pretty sure she'd dig this too. 
And most important I'm happiest that someone who needed the encouragement might have come across this at the right time given the platform was broadened. Thank you, thank you, thank you. xoxo

Thanks Rosa! My name has been cut off lots of the reposts- I'm ok with it because the message remains the same. :) xoxo

I remember having the conversation of you wanting to do this ..... well girlfriend, it's happening! Good job! You have so many good things to say!

Saw that ;) I love it. What a great shift in the collective consciousness...promoting what you love rather than bashing what you hate. Much easier to do, no?

Excellent words to live by. There is room for all of our unique creativity in this world and we should all be supportive of that. :)

Hi Erica - so nice crossing paths with you at the Delta event last week. I had seen this quote on IG and thought it was wonderful but didn't make the connection until just now. Still just getting around to checking everyone out I didn;t know before Indy. You have lovely style and give off such warmth in person 0 looking forward to following along with you here and on IG :) xoxo
