Or as you posh people say, ‘something for nothing.’ I was always told as a kid that you’ll never get “some’at f’nowt.” But, as I have aged I realise that isn’t necessarily true. Inspiration and motivation is free. But today it’s everywhere, blogs, tweets, FB and LinkedIn posts but I do wonder if you can have too much, so you become anesthetized to them?
We now have this stuff all over college. We even have it on the stair risers. I often imagine kids falling down the stairs as they read these wonderful messages of encouragement. “All it takes is a leap of faith.” Call me cynical but should that be on a stairwell? 😉
I noticed as I walk to the canteen there is a poster of a girls midriff and, let’s just say she is carrying a little weight. The message is concerning obesity and diabetes. Okay, great message… I guess – but what about the girl with an eating disorder who is heading for lunch? Well it’s okay because two yards further on there is another poster advertising doughnuts six for the price of three and of course their biggest selling product is cheesy chips. Dear lord… Be safe, be healthy my friends xx
