We live in a world that has created an almost addictive craving for ‘attention’ from others.

Plugged into the ether via a multitude of devices, we search to be noticed, we demand it.

Real attention comes from saying, creating or doing something meaningful, soulful and heartfelt. Doing something that matters to us. Then, the people who notice and appreciate us are the only ones that are important. There may only be a few but big numbers are just big numbers, they are not better.

Concentrate on giving to the world with no expectation, because the attention you get will be what makes life truly magical.

Craving attention only gives you emptiness as you try to create for an ‘audience’. Create and share what you love, do not seek or expect anything from others.
