There is so much corruption in the world at the moment, injustice is happening just about everywhere, and I know, that I have been focusing a lot on the bad in our world of late, but I don’t want to paint the world grey It is certainly not the direction I want my blog to take. Looking for the next case of injustice or abuse of power is not a healthy way to spend my days, especially when you consider my mental health and how, always searching for the next piece of injustice or corporate ineptness is starting to bring me down.
The world is an amazing and beautiful place, passing up any opportunity to see and share this is a crime in its self and I don’t want to be accused of such a crime.
It was officially Spring a few days ago and as if by magic the weather started to feel a lot more springy? If that is a word. Plants are starting to poke their heads out of the ground, some flowers are starting to bud and flower, even the trees and bushes are starting to show signs of life after what has been a cold winter. At least this is what it is like in my little part of the world. Everything is starting to feel nice and I want to be a part of that instead of trolling through news articles looking for corruption and wrongdoing.
Don’t get me wrong, I still intend to bring to light injustices where I see it, but I don’t want that to be, the be all and end all and what I am all about because it’s not, I have other things that I am doing, I have already started getting back into shape, my bike has been dusted off and my legs are aching after yesterday’s bike ride, yes it was a bit cold but I thoroughly enjoyed myself, it felt good to be out in the fresh air.
I have my middle-aged spring wardrobe to create, I’m tired of wearing the same old stuff, boots jeans and a tee-shirt and my old green Parker when it gets a bit cold.
In short, I don’t want iJim.co.uk to be a place where people come to, and leave feeling like the world is going to come to an end. I want people to come here and feel inspired or at least a bit happier, so with that in mind I believe that it is time for a change of attitude.
So, here is the plan:
- There will be a new blog post at least once a week, on a Friday, if I feel the need to post more than once a week all the better.
- I will continue to make posts about news articles, where I believe that the full story has not been told but, that is not going to be the main focus of my blog.
- During the time I spent on YouTube I bought a few cameras to make my videos that little bit better, now that this is not a priority, I want to use them to start taking photographs which I want to post here.
There you have it, it is now spring and an ideal time to grow.
