So I was following some links yesterday and stumbled upon the 1999 spoken-work hit “Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen).” I’m sure you’ve heard it, or at least have read it. (If not, it was actually a column by Mary Schmich of the Chicago Tribune titled, “Advice, like youth, probably just wasted on the young.”)
Anyway, I listed to the “song” again, and read the article, and while all of it continues to strike me as amazing and true, there was one section that I found quite apt @ this point in my life (and maybe in yours, too):
“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.”
So I choose not to feel guilty and instead sing, dance, stretch, floss, and wear sunscreen.
