the path to awesome

Saturday, January 26, 2013

The world needs you to stop being boring. Everyone can be boring. But you are gooder than that...

Being in your early 20's is confusing and difficult as you try to adjust to the real world and figure out what you want to do. I've been struggling with this for the past 6+ months, and in all honesty it's been really really hard. Growing up I had these high hopes that I would live in New York working for some high end magazine, or living in Africa helping starving children, but here I find myself working at 8 to 6 job in front of a computer, doing something I'm no longer passionate about, and giving in to all the negative energy and skepticism that pollutes my every day. But you know what? I think it's about time that changes...

This video was an eye opener (and absolutely hilarious too!) and really hit home for me. Seriously, some of his key points were just like, DUH, it makes so much sense. "What will you create that will make the world awesome? Nothing if you keep sitting there!"

I really do need to stop sitting there, waiting for life to happen, and instead  need to grab every opportunity in front of me, make a change, and choose a path that will lead to awesome. And that path hurt, I might make a mistake and have to turn back, but I would rather choose the path that makes me happy than the one that is expected of me. I may or may not start watching this video every morning with the with hope of recharging my outlook, because really, I WAS made to be awesome, and it's about time I stop crying and start dancing.

Thank you Kid President. You are awesome. 

This is life people! You got air coming through you nose, you got a heart beat. That means it's time to do something!

What if there really were two paths? I wanna be on the one that leads to awesome. 

Don't stop believing, unless your dream is stupid, then get a different dream. 

If life really is a game, are we on the same team? 

I took the road less traveled... it hurt man!! 

Create something that will make the world awesome. 

We got work to do- we can cry about it or we can dance about it.

You were made to be awesome.
