Advice From Strangers

You know how it is...
there's someone spouting advice about any and everything.

Some tips are useful.
Some are just plain bonkers.

***Sidenote- Ask a pregnant woman how she feels about advice from strangers and watch smoke come out of her ears.

But genuinely good advice, memorable words that force a little perspective?
Priceless and rare.
Yesterday, director, screenwriter and producer Baz Luhrmann's 1998 release "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)" popped up on the radio.

Hadn't heard it in years.
I promise you this—it put a super positive spin on my day.

This unusual recording serves up real, invaluable advice.

I should listen to this every day.

Hearing it will change your week
your month
your year.
The wisdom in this song lingers. It's moving, people. You've gotta listen to it today.
Then go dance.
Or sing.

Don't have time to watch the entire 5 minute video? Check out the lyrics to this song here.
If I was still teaching, I'd print this advice and hang it on my classroom wall immediately.

Maybe the playroom?
It's that good.

Check it out, and let us know which tidbit hits you hardest.
Here's to making the most of every moment, sweet friends!
