On Friday I put up my kindness display. I decided to display the tattoo #2 after all because that was the ultimate act of kindness that day. I know most people don’t associate tattoo shops and artists with kindness, but I am one to break stereotypes (and taboos apparently).
So far, it’s been well received. Many people walked up to me as I was putting the display up saying we need more kindness in this world AND as we head into a bitter election year, Americans need kindness more than ever. AND as the orange buffoon that sits in the oval office bombed Iran, we need kindness more than ever. I hope my display will inspire kindness and I can’t wait to post updates throughout January.
I found out why my Happiness Box Project Instagram was deleted. Apparently, I was “buying likes.” Not really, but if too many fake or bot accounts follow you, Instagram may think of you as suspicious. Instagram wants genuine content and meaningful interaction. I was giving genuine and meaningful, but whatever.
I deactivated my personal account. So far, it’s been peaceful and I’m not sure if I will return. Maybe in a month or two I’ll reevaluate because I do keep in touch with others. However, Instagram rubbed me the wrong way by deleting something that was genuine and meaningful. Appeal is pending.
