Be the Best Damned Plumber

I wonder what would happen if we stopped lying to ourselves and our children.

We cannot be whatever we want. If you’re reading this and haven’t quite gotten around to being an Olympic gymnast or a a cowboy, it probably ain’t gonna happen.

We cannot have whatever we want if we work hard. Lottery of birth, luck, abilities, and a bunch of other things you cannot control or take credit for or blame have as much to do with fortune as anything else. Everyone thinks they work hard.

I think the best we can hope for is being our best self.
Do what lights you up, whether you get paid for it or not.
Create. Love. Be kind.

Be whatever it is you are.
That’s all that’s required of you.
