This Monday marks the third week that I have been posting a ‘graphic message of the day’ on Instagram. I started with one inspiring message that I found in a restaurant. Then I decided to put up photos of the rest of the posters I found in that restaurant. Next, I visited the site workisnotajob.com and downloaded some of their pictures; posting their photos along with a hashtag.
Today I am considering something different. Maybe it’s because I only have one #workisnotajob photo to go, or maybe it’s because I got a friend of mine to create a graphic message for me using a photo she found online and a line I heard from TVD, but I have started to entertain the idea of creating my own graphic messages. Well, I am not a graphic artist, but I think I can get one to work with me, maybe get a photographer to provide photos, and I can provide the words. It’s not a completely new idea, and I actually gave a friend of mine the same suggestion a month or so ago because she is quite good at spouting out these gems of wisdom.
Why am I talking about this?
Because today’s ‘graphic message of the day’ encourages everyone to take their dreams seriously. And I realised that I would love a collection of messages. It’s a passion project. And since this year is all about pursuing passion, then it is something I will do.
Connected to taking dreams seriously, I am currently wracking my brain for a good story to write for an upcoming writing contest. It’s going to be the first time in a long time that I will be submitting an entry to a contest, and I can feel myself overthinking the process already… Oy vey. Wish me luck!
