Lemon Strawberry Fluff with berries and graham cracker crust all stuffed into a trifle! ohsweetbasil.com

What is it about facebook that makes everyone want to share too much? I am about to rant, if you don’t want to read my rant you may proceed to the lemon berry fluff trifle recipe and pretend this never happened. And before you go, I will first tell you that this is based off of our famous Cheesecake Berry Salad so prepare yourselves to be the talk of the party and to stuff your face so full you’ll actually want to live in #fatpants for the next few days just so you can continue to eat it. I’m not kidding, this is one of my favorite desserts and it’s easier than PB&J (it’s not but pretty close).

Ok, back to me and my important thoughts. Facebook kind of makes me insane. It can be used for so much good, keeping in touch, sharing photos, sharing uplifting things etc and yet there is sooooo much complaining, political bickering and let’s be honest, totally not true media shared. It’s really starting to bother me, but because of our Oh, Sweet Basil page I have to keep my personal account.

If you are one of these, “ugh, this is why I don’t get along with women!” or “Wow, could life get any worse for us? When will it end?” or my favorite, “If you want to say something say it to my face and not behind my back.” people, and we all know the list goes on I’ve probably unfollowed you. Seriously. Listen, we all go through trials, friendships can be broken, the government has problems and so on, but either you breath good things into life and help share goodness or you are only contributing to the negativity.

Try graham cracker crust in a trifle instead of cake! ohsweetbasil.com

If life stinks, someone else’s does too and maybe it’s time to find some way to serve so you can feel better. It actually works, I promise. If the government has some bad decisions going on then find a way to make something better, a neighbor that needs help with food, a kind note to someone in your neighborhood, the list goes on forever.

Can’t we stop the passive aggressive, airing our dirty laundry and complaining trend on facebook? I hate to tell you this, but when you choose to always post the negative, you actually start feeling more negative. See the good. Be the good. Share the good. Am I really alone in this or do any of you feel like facebook can be a tool for good, but instead it’s being turned to bring you down (not being invited to things, seeing horrible stories, watching fb bickering)? Annnnnd, end rant. Haha! Let’s all be kind and uplifting. Let’s post good things and not just the bad!
