You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge.
Apologize for mistakes. Apologize for unintentionally hurting someone — profusely. But don’t apologize for being who you are.
- Canada: Sure, we may have the best hockey, Tim Hortons, delicious maple syrup, cute moose, and great beer... But we're also the 3rd best place to live in the world as well as the 3rd cleanest country on the planet. We have waterproof money, ketchup chips, the best skiing resorts, Niagara Falls, same-sex marriage is legal in the entire country, we're ranked more free than America, we have a low divorce and suicide rate, we're the 2nd most educated country, our middle class is now the richest middle class in the world, we're the 8th most peaceful country, we have 8% more political female leaders than America, we have the most Hollywood filming locations, paid maternity leave for all women, diversity with extremely rare cases of racism, the cleanest lakes, an extremely stable economy, many well-known celebrities come from here such as Anna Paquin, Rachel McAdams, Ryan Gosling, Pamela Anderson, Seth Rogen, Ellen Page, Will Arnett, Mike Myers, Wolverine, Michael Cera, and Jim Carrey. We also have bigger houses and a low poverty rate. We also help America repopulate endangered species. On top of all that, we're the nicest people that you'll ever meet simply because that's just how us Canadians are. Pretty cool, eh?
- Everyone: Hell yeah, happy Canada Day!
- America: I came out to have a good time and I'm honestly feeling so attacked right now.
- Canada: Sorry.
Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.
Last night Jimmy Fallon posted this “selfie” of him and Matt Harvey.
What a game by the way! Just an outstanding performance by the best goaltender in the league.
I’m in love
