There is so much more than what meets the eye....

Sometimes, I wish that people would just wake up......really snap out it, this bubble that we are in. Our world is deteriorating in so many ways, yet when I want to read the news, most articles in modern newspapers are about who has recently made silicon implants or had Botox over their lunch break, who looked the best in the latest media event, who has tipped over the edge with their drug addictions or who, shockingly (?!), had cellulite on their thighs. Am I the only one who is watching all this happening, jaw-dropped, wondering what's wrong with the world?! ....or are we really getting so numb that this is all we care about? Is this because we simply can't take anymore? Are we truly getting so superficial and unintellectual that we no longer care about what's hidden beneath the surface of what we see? 


I want to be inspired! I want to read about how we could change the world for the better and if I have to read about gossip, why can't we let it be about something that stimulates peoples minds, such as who achieved something amazing for the sake of charity or about how brilliantly someone played their role in a film instead of having to read about the chest size of the man in the leading role? What happened to our appreciation of art? Have we lost all hope in our future? Is this why we let this all happen and just go with it? Or am I truly, really the only one feeling this way?


Only questions in my mind....no answers...

  1. oh, I hear you - I feel the same! And I am still wondering why the hell we care what the Kardashians are up to, when none of them, especially Kim, seem to have an ounce of any sort of discernible talent. Seriously - people famous for being famous? So sick of them.

  2. Thought-provoking and heartfelt post. I agree wholeheartedly. We are shrinking our world with the media instead of expanding. We should be doing so much more with what technology allows us. Thanks Linda, it's always good to be reminded.

  3. Elisa: I know..... I must admit, I thought she was a singer....but then I heard she got famous for her nice butt! Amazing......in a bad way ;) x

    Sada: Why thank you!!! It's really scary what the world is turning into. I read in a Swedish newspaper that the teenagers do not even know what democracy is and also, many said they would take a bribe from a party to vote for them. xox
