Indulge in @PleasureEllis
If you are feeling blue and the world is overwhelming you, then check out the extra special Twitter account belonging to this young, positive-thinking African American male. His tweets were the first place I looked this morning for inspiration and relief after a long Wednesday workday, followed by a hectic, traffic-snarled ride home.
Ellis is an articulate man with a talent for music, but somehow he manages to remain charming and humble; an unusual character trait for someone living in Hollywood with over 1.4 million followers.
I work in the education industry, and I am often privy to outlandish comments and conversations based on the meager successes of people with little to brag about, but seemingly experts in every academic pursuit. And suddenly I will encounter a truly gifted person insistent on downplaying their obvious talents, and I will be reminded of Ellis and his fascinating gift to all of his followers: a balanced and humble outlook.
All of us are familiar with the Block and Report button, but you will never need it with Pleasure Ellis. He doesn't put us through the agonizing torture of big rear-ends, topless narcissistic selfies, and fake obscene medical articles. He isn't even trying to romance any women.
Instead, you will be introduced to a world of caring positivity, a bit of self-help advice, and pictures of beautiful people or places mingled with his unique perspectives concerning God and our relationships with each other.
This is why I check @PleasureEllis as often as possible.
