The beauty of youth




According to Mary Schmich in this essay, if there's one thing you should do, it is to wear sunscreen. If you ask me, the one thing you should do right now is listen to the song version of this essay by Baz Luhrmann. It has an uplifting message that really sticks and makes you feel good when you listen to it in a tropical remix song format. Lyrics/the original essay is below to have a read and really appreciate the words. It's impossible to feel bad about yourself after reading and listening to this. Give it a try :)

"Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth. Oh, never mind. You will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they've faded. But trust me, in 20 years, you'll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can't grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked."

"Don't worry about the future. Or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum"

"Don't waste your time on jealousy. Sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind. The race is long and, in the end, it's only with yourself."
   
"Your choices are half chance. So are everybody else's."

"Enjoy your body. Use it every way you can. Don't be afraid of it or of what other people think of it. It's the greatest instrument you'll ever own."

"Do not read beauty magazines. They will only make you feel ugly."

"Be careful whose advice you buy, but be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia. Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth."
