8/8/14Good Vibes Only
Social media is crazy, and the more eyeballs you get on your stuff, the crazier it gets. Sometimes a perfect stranger is able to put me in a bad mood, make me feel off or question myself, my art or my actions. Yesterday some lady told me to screw myself, called me a supporter of murder and a ‘sick mother’ for posting a picture of taxidermy animals at the Natural History Museum. It seriously threw me off, and even though I really didn’t want to think about her or her off-color comment, it sucked time, energy and positivity out of a day I was spending at the museum with my family.
It reminded me that whether online or in person, it’s so important to spread the love, focus on the good and to remember that vibes– both good vibes and bad vibes — are deeply infectious. So I leave you for the weekend with a little reminder to be a proliferator of good-ass vibes, ’cause don’t nobody got time for all that other bull sh&t.
