Social media is powerful. It can be used, and can affect us, in different ways. It can be a source of inspiration and awareness, but it can also deter you from your purpose, feed your ego and make you lose focus on what’s really important. Over the years I began to wonder whether social media might be jeopardising my own true purpose, or my sincerity in offering service. I wondered whether I was being subconsciously influenced and attracted to the recognition and stimulus I would get from the followers on my pages and the amount of likes I would receive. It’s easy to lose sight of your vision when you are influenced by all this attention. I had to question myself about all of this… how is a ‘like’ going to help someone who’s suffering from homelessness, mental health issues, or a lack of self esteem? In that moment I wondered if I should delete my account—to keep what I'm doing as authentic as possible—but then I came to the realisation that there are many people who derive inspiration from this page (myself included). That this movement of service was about all of us, as a collective, and so I’ve decided to keep going, and to try to go back to the grassroots of how this all started. So while things may have seemed quiet online, they haven’t been in the real world. I have still been going out onto the streets, I just haven’t been posting photos or videos. Just me, my street client and my tools. It felt so good, to keep it real like that, just like when I first started. Now that I’ve dealt with this personal battle of ego within myself and become aware of the importance of sincerity, I feel ready to bounce back (on social media). I don’t deserve recognition more than anybody else. It’s not my thing, serving the community or cutting hair for people less fortunate. I didn’t invent it. There are people who have been serving before me, and will serve after me, doing far greater things for the community. I’m one of many. It’s never been about the fame, the likes or the followers. And it never will be. I give you guys my word. Stay tuned for a lot of cool stories that are coming up. I appreciate your patience, thanks for your love and support, all love right back.
