Forgot How Good This Was

I had my Ipod on “shuffle all” which I do occasionally when I can’t decide what I’m in the mood for. I have wildly eclectic taste in music (some people have implied it gives them whiplash :D) so when I do this I have no idea what will turn up. One of the reasons I like to do it. The other reason is that once in a while, something you REALLY love, but haven’t heard in a long time, pops up. That happened this morning. And it’s so good I wanted to share it. I hope you enjoy it as much I do. 🙂

Baz Luhrman’s Everyone’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)

Favorite lines: “You’re not as fat as you imagine” and “you’ll miss them when they’re gone.” 🙂

    I love popping on YouTube every now and again to find and listen to that tune. I think I like the line best about how worrying being as effective as chewing bubble gum or something? Argh forgot the line! Will need to go listen! B

    Hi Bourbon,
    Welcome to my blog, thanks for commenting! I love that one too, I think it’s “about as effective as chewing gum to solve an algebra equation.” 🙂 There’s a lot of wisdom in that speech and delivered with a lot of humor, which I love.

    That was good! Maybe this is the video that should be playing thru our heads.at all times. This will be a good link to go back to when feeling stuck.

    Thanks a bunch,

    AG, your iPod sounds like mine: everything from classical to country to new age to classic rock, some reggae, hip-hop, rap, soft rock & pop. You never know what you’ll get when you put it on shuffle. Thanks so much for sharing this one with us.

      Glad to know I’m not the only one. I run from classical to country to new age to Broadway musicals, Celtic, Rock, you name it. Honestly the only genres I don’t listen to a lot of are grunge and hip-hop. I’m really glad you enjoyed it, it’s been a favorite since I first heard it. 🙂

    Love, love, LOVE this song – it is so quotable! The lessons, like you pointed out, are pretty good, too. Thanks for bringing this back to my vision AG!

      Glad you’re enjoying seeing it again also. 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to say so.

    Do one thing every day that scares you…It’s a great reminder. As I told my daughter the other day, she is brave because she was scared of doing something but she did it anyway, and that is what makes one brave. It’s a good mantra when one is heading into the “room”.

      I always thought that was a good piece of advice too. 🙂 Actually, my favorite rule of thumb for deciding what to talk about in therapy, is pick what scares you most, and start with that. I recently saw the movie “We Bought a Zoo” and took away another good piece of advice: “All you need is 20 seconds of insane courage.” Thanks for commenting.
