Searching For Attention

Posted on

Browsing through Instagram yesterday; I came across a picture that got me thinking. How important is it to have meaningful relationships? By, not just dealing with people to seem cool, but having tangible relationships with them. I see so many people posting images, seeking attention for all the wrong reasons. Attention is a helluva drug. We all want it; but at what cost? Do we risk losing our self-worth or degrade ourselves for it? Humans need their ego’s boosted. We thrive off feeling important. You have to differentiate between meaningful attention vs. popularity attention. Ask yourself: what are you really gaining from likes from strangers on your exposed photos? Or, are you seeking likes to help boost your confidence?

Focusing on if you get likes on your photos only weakens your confidence. “Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder”, which means what you see as beautiful someone else might not understand your vision. Have people in your life that will support you and your dreams by helping you reach them. Not by showing off your body to strangers on Instagram for popularity. But, by pushing you to stay on the right path to reach your goals. If you’re seeking attention, try finding it through people whom are driven and determined to get success. Find friends that are working towards their dreams, so they can influence you to work towards yours. Be a positive influence in life by showing the world your achievements, not by revealing how great you look naked. Trust me ladies, men like women that’s driven with goals. Yes, they like to chase after women that come easy, but keep in mind. Easy come easy go.

Are You Ready For Super Bowl Sunday?

Posted on

I can’t wait to scream loudly with excitement during this years Super Bowl XLVIII. No, my team is not playing in the Super Bowl because I don’t have a favorite football team. So, I won’t be cheering for any team in particular. I’m more of a basketball fan than football fan. The competitiveness of football gets me excited while watching muscular men in tight fitting uniforms tackle each other with domination. Spending the day with my friends and family gives me joy watching each other yell at the T.V, acting as if they’re the ones playing in the game. Seeing bets on who’s going to win the game being made and devouring decadent food that was prepared for the occasion. Like, bite size sandwiches in the shape of a footballs, vegetable platters, and spiked punch.
