You’re Allowed To
Have It All
So much of our lives we are told what we are supposed to do. We are supposed to go to school, we are supposed to do our homework, supposed to eat our broccoli, supposed to get a job, supposed to pay our dues, supposed to raise a family, supposed to dream but not too much because we are only allowed a certain amount of freedom.
That freedom is limited by all of the things we are not allowed to do by binding our creative spirits in rules, regulations, societal norms, and other people’s opinions of how THEY think you should live YOUR life.
In light of this nonsense, perhaps the most applicable movie line to relay my thoughts here is
“…what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”(Billy Madison 1995)
Do yourself a favor from this day forward and allow yourself to grow and develop a deeper understanding of the world you live in. Every stumble and every reward along the way will only strengthen your testimony. “You’ll have a grand tale to tell. A tale of victory” (300, 2006).
I’ll be back,
This catchy and fun favorite of mine is a light-hearted and inspirational song by the great Jason Mraz. It is a reminder to not take things too seriously, trust the process, and have some fun! Please enjoy “Have It All.”
