Marketing Beauty

Marketing wrinkles my brain.

How do we make people want something? Be willing to sacrifice other necessities to purchase it? How do we make a product so appealing in just thirty seconds time? Are we gullible enough to fall for that?

Marketing wrinkles my brain because it tells me to be unsatisfied with my life. It tells me I am not enough without this status or product or achievement or mate. And it takes only 30 seconds to convince me of that.

I want a different mindset. A contentedness no matter my situation. A peace that isn’t product-based. How can such a mindset be maintained when I’m told otherwise so often?

Philippians 4:11-13

“I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”
