Why I Love Emojis

Someone asked me the other day “what did someone like you do before there were emojis (better yet bitmojis (I’m in love) 😊💜) to express your emotions?” It’s a really good question, because before email and texting I wasn’t very communicative or good at expressing my emotions.  And I’ve never liked talking on the phone that much.  It doesn’t come naturally or easily to me, I grew up in a family that was not very warm and cuddly.  It’s much easier for me to say how I feel in writing.  However, even before texting I will say 20 years of yoga and a near death experience (or two) has definitely  “opened my heart” or my fourth chakra

(My friend says it looks like someone gave a black eye in this one)

But with the advent of texting I have found the ability to let people know how I feel about them when it’s positive and supportive or humorous but have still  tried to retain the ability to control myself a bit when it’s not all 🙏💜😊. you get my drift 😉Ever since I’ve been able to text and use emojis my reputation has gone from”she’s kind of cold and not very sweet and sometimes brutally honest” to “she can be sweet and thoughtful sometimes albeit brutally honest”

😉The first time I received an emoji it was on a cold winter day and my friend ended our texting session with stay warm! ❄️⛄️🌨and I literally came unglued with excitement I showed my kids and said “I want those” and they 🙄at me and said they’d been around forever and then proceeded to put them on my phone, I was thrilled, it’s the little things, right?  You can only imagine how I reacted, when I got my first bitmoji from my daughter, it was as if I’d died and gone to heaven

My point being we should all try to tell the people we love and care about more often, even if it’s just a quick text and even if you don’t have a lot of time … a quick
