Good morning facebook friends!!! I have facebook friends again. Someone please like this post so that I feel…..
I feel that most people say too much on facebook and in life: myself included, myself betrayed. My own voice betrays me, and sometimes thoughts too. If only I’d kept my mouth shut maybe I’d still have that friend, or that one, or that one….
Does anybody out there still like me?
“Of course they do Amber!” Don’t be silly….”
I question myself on a regular basis and then there are days I accuse, “Why should they like you Amber? You are too loud, too abrasive, too much of everything with nothing near middle. You forget birthdays. You’re cheap, selfish, and lazy…..”
OUCH. Someone stop me before I get to true loathing and I do. I sometimes allow my absolute and total destruction until I am a character in black paint or does that sound racist… f*ck…. you should add that too. I am sure I have that malignancy and perhaps I should get a cancer screening.
“Amber!!! You are none of those horrible things and you don’t have cancer.”
I have friends for that reason. They argue with my fear, worry, and doubt. My best friends tell me I am crazy.
Can you imagine what I would become without friends! Thank you facebook!! What would I do without you….
We’ve only had facebook since 2004 and I’m more than sure I had at least 804 friends before then…. or did I? How can I keep track of people without like buttons?
My life has become a poll of public opinion.
MAY THE ODDS BE IN YOUR FAVOR
How many people do you think like Donald Trump? He’s doing just fine in the Capital, painted clown that he is.
TOWER OF TRUMP
Do you think he cares how many people like him?
My answer is no. He is successful because he capitalizes on need not likability. People like getting things they need. Simple business. Easy profit.
Walmart is an example of Trump likability. There are a lot of people that HATE Walmart and the Walmatians that shop there. Those same haters are having those ugly judgmental thoughts while they are filling up their shopping cart…. at Walmart.
Hate is a powerful word, especially in bold.
“Did you say hate the people or hate the store because I ain’t no people hater.”
It’s enough to make you stop to consider which side you’d be on. Do you hate Walmart? Are you a hater and if you are do you still do business in their store? If the answer is yes… why?
These are the things I think about at 7:42 am on a Monday morning. I’m also thinking about brushing my teeth, and that I have my own business to run. I need to take a shower, and then I’m making the bed. Crawling into my sheets tonight will be the reward to a day well earned and loved. I love what I do to the passion of all people who walk through my door, gifts. My days are full of gifts and there is fruit born from that love. My personal training business allows me to help people in their journeys toward and through continued health: creating goals and bests. My life is devoted to that purpose. Proactive health and wellness to the making of the best life.
My best life includes art. I also make a living as a photographer. A Smile Like Yours Photography is a fine art portrait studio. I am known for my high-end gallery portraits though my new business model promotes more of an influx of clientele. My current price structure is seventy-five percent less to my clients mostly on the account that I’m in the mood to see volumes of people. I enjoy them and then I also want them to have and hold their memories. All of my sessions include the images with printing rights. This provides my clientele with the opportunity to make their own prints, share them online, and of course there is archiving.
We are nothing without our memories…
The beginning and focus of this blog was likability and yes, there are times I allow my own heart to get caught up in the concept of it mattering. Do you like me? It shouldn’t matter but it does. Likeabilty in life is generally earned by giving and contribution. How much does your life add to the world by the value of what you do?
May your day be filled with smiles,
