  • The world does not need us posting pictures.
    The act of posting is a mechanical act.
    Posting a picture will not make you famous or loved or even liked.

    But sharing something you care about and conveying that to another person can bring unexpected rewards.
    Only if you want it to.
    Only if you need it to.

    If you are sharing something you care about you can draw people to you, excitement is magnetic.
    Interest is interesting.

    But boredom is declining food at the banquet of life.
    Boredom is covering your ears at a concert.
    Boredom is refusing to give of yourself.

    Boredom negates what other people find joy or interest in.
    Boredom is not a cry for help.
    It is the denial of pleasure.

    Life is so short.
    Find something you love, something that does not bore you.
    There is no time to loose.
