Those of you who follow me on Facebook, know that I often share other people’s articles, videos and pictures there, if I feel that you might like them. I haven’t really done that much on this blog, with the exception of this post, but that’s about to change today. I recently shared a post by Tess Marshall from the Bold Life on Gratitude, which contains an awesome TED video. Now, I love me some TED videos in general, and I watch a lot of inspirational and educational stuff. You’d think that it’d be pretty hard to impress me, but that’s not really true. Throw a cute puppy in there, or talk about how we’re all love, and I’m in.
But every once in a while, someone gets it so spot on that I stop doing my nails (good activity to do while listening to inspirational stuff), my jaw drops, my eyes well up with tears and I’m totally overcome with happy shiny puppy feelings. I had that experience twice this week, and one came from the video I’m going to share with you today. The other one I may blog about shortly.
John “Halcyon” Styn is apparently an internet legend. I’ve never heard of him, at least not until this week. It seems that he used to be a bit of a douchebag (at least his public persona was), but his grandpa showed him the way, as he explains in this video. I don’t want to give anything away, except this:
What John talks about is the personification of everything I teach. You’re going to see a lot of my blog posts mirrored in this talk. Not only that, but his style fits right in here. He’s funny, honest, authentic, and uses lots of metaphors, including one involving poop. Oh, and he’s a hugger. He and his grandpa started a movement called Hug Nation. Honestly, it’s like we’re twins, separated at birth, y’all.
Do yourself a huge favor and watch this video. I await your profuse gratitude in the comments.
