Watching the interview between Oprah and Beyonce ( two of my favorites) last night started this train of thought for me. The venom from some was alarming. Overexposed, idolized, don't give enough( really?) give to the wrong groups, overrated, the list goes on and on. The really sad thing is that this type of "hating" is not reserved for the rich and famous. It is becoming common and it is scary.
It is almost as if you can improve your own self if you wildly succeed at putting someone else down. Wow. Well, one reason may be that social media allows us to edit the image of ourselves to some degree. My bestie and I are quick to say, take another pic....want it to look good for FB....true story. And ummm.....we are NOT in high school.....heehee.
Anyhow, I got to thinking if folks were a lil more real about what's what, the pressure of perfection would lessen, and maybe the desire to bash others would lessen too! So I decided to channel Beyonce. Here it is.........
Lol. Expecting something else? Red bottom shoes and Nicole Fierce? Ain't gonna happen. Just a lil iPad picture taking and cracking myself up while at the "Harding Salon." And to make a point......I put myself out here with little regard......haters are gonna hate. I choose love, and joy, and shine, and sparkle. I think if you give enough of that regularly it is contagious. And even on your roller day, or that late night run to the grocery store, folks will see that first. And the ones who shake their head and start with the negative comments must be trying really really hard on their failing self improvement plan. And that is Real Talk!
