I know, I know. Always over dramatizing. That’s just how it comes out. But hear this. Imagine if you decided to write for yourself. The real you and not trying to tap into ‘what people would like’ or what’s popular, like travelling or being strong and leadership-like 🙄, and see what happens…Make up your own content, imagine the mundane to the ridiculous, inform yourself about all the things in the world you ignore, like bombs being dropped, eroding coastlines, endless, endless cars, children close to you living austere lives, posting about being physically healthy and ignoring the increase of mental health suffering. Write about our pre-occupation with ‘happy-ever-after’ …fairly attainable for example, by investing in a white dress, hiring a planner and saying ‘I do’…🌈⛪…or by changing your diet, going green, or making posters, expounding ‘your truth’ in soundbites. Fairy tales for grown-ups…”I wonder….
Or is it easier to just peddle positivity? That good things come to those who are good, pray, vote every four years and eat healthily. In other words…’you’. ‘You’ are the success model to aspire to. ‘You’ the A-lister’ among your followers. ‘Digital shiny you’.
Write…write…write…for whom…and what shall I say?!?😩 I think I will tackle a topic about stray dogs. Yes. Who doesn’t love a nice mongrel?!😉 I hope that will help roll in some interest.
