Have you heard of the Cheerios Effect? It is a real scientific principle that is nicknamed after the cereal; it’s about the fact that if you drop two Cheerios into a bowl, they’ll always eventually float together and connect. How cool is that?!
ABOUT THE CHEERIOS EFFECT
Every morning, a story of connection is played out in your breakfast bowl. And just like those two tiny, floaty little Os, we’re all drawn together. We believe nothing could be more natural. So no matter who you are, where you live, or who you choose to share your life with, we believe everyone is worthy of connection – and everyone has a story worth sharing. – The Cheerios Effect
I really love Annie & Lisa’s connection story as it reminds me a bit of my own story that I created (see below):
MY #CHEERIOSEFFECT STORY
When I was asked to create my #CheeriosEffect connection story so many people ran through my mind. Of course there is my husband, my daughter, my family and friends but I decided to share my story about my oldest friend Melissa.
Melissa and I met at the age of 10 when were in Grade 5. Melissa moved to London and started attending my school; 27 years later, Melissa and I are just as close. To say she is my best friend is an understatement; we are more like sisters without the fighting over clothes.
Melissa and I chat almost every morning where we discuss the latest dramas with our children, our shared business and living an authentic, positive life. I think we both look forward to our morning chats as it starts the day off on the right foot and it keeps us close and current.
Melissa holds a special place in my heart because she has been there for me through thick and thin. She is a pillar of strength for me at times when I need it most. She is part of my “team” of people who make life happier when things are good and easier when things aren’t so good.
For these reasons I chose to dedicate my Cheerios Effect story to Melissa. Who would you dedicate your story to?
