While catching up on blogs instead of working (I know AWFUL employee) I came across a couple that had this Youtube video as their topic. I'm sure I'm the last one to see it and comment on it but I wanted to anyways.
This was probably one of the greatest and most inspirational pieces I have heard in a while.
We as adults rely to much on what other people think of us (this is one of my biggest faults) and most of those other people are magazines with hours of Photoshop and perfectly placed words.
Our children believe they are to be given everything they want/need and don't have to work for it because mommy and daddy will do it. WRONG. We worked to get to where we are and there is no reason they shouldn't. Make your children get jobs and when they get older and have a career they love because they worked hard they will thank you and you will thank you because you don't have your 30 yr old living in your basement watching your cable while you still work.
My favorite part of his speech though was to live life and to build the life you want to live. I know most days I don't and especially being here, we don't love it, I don't love it, but we need to make the best of it. It's hard and I admit it but if we don't find some enjoyment out of it then we will waste 2-3 years being miserable just getting by instead of being happy and making it something to look back on. Life is what you put into it.
So yes I'm behind on the times but hopefully for all of you who have watched this, watch it again for a fun refresher.
