Life without

I could take life without a spoon, an Xbox, a smartphone, the internet, yeah I really did say that as I am publishing another blog on it, I could always publish it old school as say a paper. Much of what the world holds up as important, I and you could do without. In fact, we’d be better off without.

I couldn’t live without art, music, people, nature, books, and most of all love. Imagine a world without any pictures or music. Even more, imagine a life without having love, there is no life. Yet the world is filled with hate and for example, the arts considered as a waste of time. Now, miraculously, healthcare specialists finally waking up to the benefits to our mental and physical health of being in nature, wow what a revelation eh!

Strange how much not having the internet seems to stress the whole world out more than say, not having time to appreciate art or being loving towards each other. Hate is the norm, but we could all do without it.

It’s easy to be popular

There is a formula if you wish to follow it, that will get you lots of likes, followers and make you popular, but it lacks any soul, meaning, or purpose. It adds nothing but more noise to the continuous human story that we can all add to. Fluffy cat pictures still work, by the way.

It’s not about finding a big audience, it’s about finding your voice and finding something that you really want to say, something that will add to the ongoing human narrative.

There might not be a huge audience straight away or ever, but with patience and sticking to what really matters to you, it will resonate with the people who really care about what you care about. You can become a shining light for them to follow.
