“… if, when you stop and look around, do not like what you see, make a firm and concrete commitment to change it!” Our dollhouse theme in this month’s issue of COUTURE Africa magazine, coupled with the piece on the social media mirage by our curious observer makes me think that perhaps – in one way or another – we are all living in a dollhouse of our own making. The excitement we had then, as children, is not different from the thrills we get today, as adults, when we buy that brand new flat screen TV or upgrade the 10-year old fridge. Such is the cycle of life…work hard…get paid…buy stuff…from someone who is also working hard…to get paid from the stuff you have just bought. Oh, the joys of commerce. Then comes your persona… I admit that I cannot leave the house before “putting on my face” even if I am just going to the supermarket and back home because we have to present ourselves a certain way to the general public. Look at our social media pages…riddled with moments only of perfection. Do not get me wrong, I do not think it is a bad thing, I think it’s great – if it’s authentic! I am a true believer that you – consciously or unconsciously, actively or passively play a very present role in the creation of your reality. In the creation of your ‘dollhouse’. What does yours look like?
