Always Wear Sunscreen

With my mind wandering a bit this week. This video gave solace to my thoughts. Originally this was an essay written in the Chicago Tribune by Mary Schmich; however, the message has been conformed into videos, parts of commencement speeches, and songs. It is a bit slow starting in the beginning, but give it a chance. Here are some of the messages I got out of it.

“Worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum.”

“Do one thing everyday that scares you.”

“Your choices are half chance; so are everyone elses.”

“Be careful of whos advice you buy, but be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia. Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wipping it off, painting over the ugly parts, and recycling it for more than its worth.”
