Like it or not, pink is everywhere during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Everyone who has been impacted by breast cancer seems to have an opinion on the pink month. Some of us are quite conflicted about it. Why not bring the issue to your journal? After all, your journal is the perfect place for exploring conflicting emotions. Here are some prompts to get you started:
- How do you feel about Breast Cancer Awareness Month? Do you embrace the awareness activities or do you cringe over the constant reminders?
- How do you feel about all of the pink products that companies push in October? Does it seem great that a portion of a product purchase will go toward the cause? Or does it smack of insincere marketing?
- Does breast cancer get too much attention from the media? Do you think that Breast Cancer Awareness Month is effective?
- Do you think that the media do a good job portraying and explaining the realities of breast cancer?
Recently, I introduced this prompt in a journaling workshop for breast cancer survivors and it really sparked a great discussion. Attention all you marketers out there: people are all over the place on this one.
