As you go through your entrepreneurial journey, you'll sometimes find that life blows. Life gets messy. This isn't a post to bum you out, but to help you make lemonade.
As I was talking to a friend, all of a sudden she dropped a bomb. She was going through some tough shit and then, what I had to say seemed almost irrelevant, inconsequential even.
I stopped talking about me and what I wanted to talk about, and I started listening, hopefully, I helped.
But it made me think. It reminded me of how life sometimes sucks, and how life gets messy. Those were her words.
Here's the video, enjoy.
The odd thing is that life usually smacks you straight in the face when you least expect it. The lyrics I mentioned in the video are from Wear Sunscreen by Baz Luhrman, arguably one of the most formative songs in my life.
Here's the bit that matters:
The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that
never crossed your worried mind
the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday
I listen to this song every couple of months, just to remind me and to keep me grounded. It never fails me. So I thought I would share it with you after my conversation with my friend. It also just happens that I had my own set of circumstances that recently blindsided me as well.
Here are the video and song in case you want to listen to the whole song. If you were born after 1987, you may feel it's a bit cringe. You can still learn from it.
