Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen) - Inspirational Video by yuzedo: 10:34am On Oct 08, 2013
Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of ’99

WEAR SUNSCREEN.

If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it.

The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable
than my own meandering experience…

I will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth;

oh nevermind;

you will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded.

But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked.

You’re not as fat as you imagine.

Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum.

The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.


Do one thing everyday that scares you

Sing.

Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts,
don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours.

Floss.

Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with yourself.

Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you succeed in doing this, tell me how. cheesy

Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.

Stretch.

Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don’t.

Get plenty of calcium.

Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone.

Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t,
maybe you’ll have children, maybe you won’t,
maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary..... What ever you do, don’t congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either – your choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s.

Re: Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen) - Inspirational Video by yuzedo: 10:40am On Oct 08, 2013
Enjoy your body, use it every way you can…don’t be afraid of it, or what other people think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own..

Dance...... Even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.


Read the directions, even if you don’t follow them.


Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for good.

Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

Understand that friends come and go,but for the precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

This song is kinda my 'Guardian song' cheesy It gives me rare advice
Re: Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen) - Inspirational Video by yuzedo: 10:44am On Oct 08, 2013
Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will philander, you too will get old, and when you do you’ll fantasize that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders.


Respect your elders.


Don’t expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one might run out.

Be careful whose 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, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.









But, trust me on the sunscreen............... wink

LOL! I don't even know who moved this to FASHION section. grin The thread has as much to do with cosmetics as a ship has business at an airport. angry

I posted this thread because I was suffering from an acute case of the blues this morning and was randomly playing music from my phone playlist. For a long time i have had this song (hidden as a voice-note) and for the life of me don't know how it got on my phone so i've been skipping it for weeks. Today i decided to listen 10seconds longer, as Kurt Vonnegut's speech-reading sounded familiar, and that 20second grace made me realize i indeed knew the song from way back.

Needless to say, listening to the words invoked a lot of goosebumps, shivers and manly tears. grin It was the EXACT chicken soup my soul needed this tuesday morning and the inspirational and nostalgic wisdom i derived from the lyrics was something i felt i needed to share with the NL community, i mean, i don't know how many other people are feeling a little down this morning too.

The only place this should be is frontpage. But don't take the words alone, download the song and listen to it. Very emotional and presents plenty food for thought.

I agree. It should be on front page. It might just be what someone needs this morning.
