How are you ? How is your mind, body and spirit? I love asking this as we don't often think about it unless asked.
As I scrolled this morning through product blast after product blast and unboxings, my mind says "ugh this is so annoying and fake" and I have said that a million times. I understand that not all influencers or personalities are fake and there some lucrative opportunities in partnerships and promotions but for me, it is to the point now that I literally don't want anything anyone is posting about because it is just so overdone and I think they are all full of it.
I don't watch T.V but when I did, I always changed the channels at commercials as I found them so dumb and this is the same. I love being informed and learning about new products or services but don't love being ' sold '. Ya know ? Who does?!
Am I the only one who feels this way? I know, I post my friends or the odd product I've bought or food and service mainly because I think you may benefit from it and they're my friends companies I adore and local but keep it to the bare minimum because I feel that some profiles are just an on going commercial of the items these people are being paid to post about. No shade, go make those dollars but is there another way to do it?
So I ask myself...If it annoys me, why don't I unfollow? That's the sick part about social media isn't it? Because I love looking at some of these girls. I love their style maybe or body or personality (besides what seems to be inauthentic promo) or it's straight up nosy-ness. It's F*%@'d really.
What about the blasting of high end designer purchases and lavish gifts? My feed is full of it and I think, but why? I understand the excitement as holy crap if I had a new Chanel bag I'd be beside myself but especially at this time when the world is suffering so greatly in so many ways, why?
Maybe I'm rambling now, maybe I'm just changing and maybe it's time to clean up what I feed my brain and allow to distract me that certainly does not serve my best self.
Anywho, food for thought . Maybe you've had the same thoughts, maybe not.
You are loved. You are special. You are strong. You are beautiful.
Just wanted to say that. Have a kick ass day !
