This popped on the radio during my morning commute, just ‘some idle Tuesday’ ride.
I was a member of the “Class of ’99″…which just won’t disclose from what level of school :). I remember this song/poetry rap so well, so even at that young age, many of my friends and I understood the advice.
Maybe these sentiments are threadbare from wear and tear, or musty from years of being kicked farther under the bed for you. Either way, take a listen and find some truth. A few that made my smile and recommit myself to their principles are:
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.
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.
Whatever you do, don’t congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself, either. Your choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s.
So friends…remember the sunscreen.
