The new year is traditionally a time for making resolutions, and promises to do better and try harder. Here’s a list of things I’d like to see more of (and less of) in 2014.
Less waste men – more real men
Less baby daddies – more committed fathers.
Less waiting for a Messiah – more being the change we want to see.
Less begging the man for handouts – more doing-for-self
Less criticising the things we don’t like, more promoting the things we do
Less fake tan, fake nails, and fake hair, – more celebrating natural beauty.
Less skin bleaching, more self-love
Less ‘ain’t nobody got time for that’ – more ‘spending quality time’.
Less ‘Talking about it’ – more ‘Being about it’
Less of ‘my nigga’ – more of ‘my brother’.
Less grand tall buildings - More homes for families
Less Banker’s bonuses – more worker’s pay-rises
Less aristocracy – more meritocracy
Less of a stranglehood by the Oxbridge elite – more access for the rest of us
Less bedroom tax – more corporation tax.
Less War on terror – more war on want.
Less trolling – more ‘liking’
Less adding friends on facebook – more making time for friends in real life.
Less super-hero franchise sequels
– more character driven dramas.
Less coverage of the Royal family – more support for hardworking families
Less Versace, Versace, Versace – more education, education, education
Less fetishisation of youth – more respect for old age.
Less obsessing over celebrity couples – more supporting of struggling parents
Less Kanye and Kim
– more Barack and Michelle
Here’s looking forward to a better 2014. Let’s make it happen………………..
