Instagram became another area to achieve.
Another app to count.
Fans, likes, interactions.
To reach goals and fulfill strategies.
There are chat groups for people to gain likes and followers. Like a chain messaging thing. Ridiculous.
There’s stats and tools to manage.
How to sell.
How to push.
People ask me where I sell, how I seel, why I don’t do it this or that way.
I’m officially not interested in push strategies to sell.
I want to create.
And I want people to appreciate what I make.
This happened before and will happen again.
It is happening.
Creation is a process tapped into reality.
And the reality is I don’t want to trick anyone into buying me or my stuff.
Choose wisely, consciously.
And then cherish.
Because every handmade thing needs to live. In your hands, in your life, in your every day activities.
There’s no point in buying handmade and being bored with it after a week. It’s not fast fashion.
I write it not because I don’t wish myself well and that I don’t want to be recognized and sell my stuff. I DO want appreciation and that my creations find their homes and I live a happy life not worrying about bills.
But I also want to stay true to what I believe in 🌱
And I don’t really want to be a part of it anymore. The scheme to gain. The infinite chase after something, someone, results, outcomes. I want to be adaptive and respond to what reality brings to my life.
And the reality IS responding to my efforts and consequence.
