A Wednesday morning pep talk.

You may have already seen this video, but I kinda can’t quit watching it. Or quoting it.

“Boring is easy.”

“I’m on your team, be on my team.”

“But what if there really were two paths? I’d want to be on the one that leads to awesome.”

“What will you create that will make the world awesome?”

“It’s everybody’s duty to give the world a reason to dance.”

    It’s making its way around blogland, but I love watching it over again. My favorite part?
    “Like that dude Journey said, Don’t stop believin’ unless your dream is stupid. Then you should get a better dream. I think that’s how it goes.”
    Happy Wednesday!

    You can either cry about it, or dance about it!! And “Not cool, Robert Frost!”

    Saw this a few days ago and it’s still making me laugh! One of my favorite quotes: “if he did quit, then he wouldn’t’ve made Space Jams…and I looooove Space Jams!” and then “Not cool, Robert Frost!” He’s made some other videos, too…all of them just as awesome!

    I shared this on fb the other day because, honestly, who doesn’t get joy from this kid? I shared the “you can cry about it or dance about it” line. But a close 2nd is:

    “What’s your space jam?” =)

    What will be your “Space Jam”?

    One of the most awesome things about this video is this little boy has brittle bone syndrome and has had over 75 broken bones in his 9 years…and yet he still finds things to dance about. He is well on his way to awesome!
