Here’s Why Dreaming About Your Future Is One Of The Worst Mistakes You Could Ever Make

Graduation speeches are meant to rev up new, hungry diploma carriers eager to make an impact on the big, bright world, right? Dartmouth alum Shonda Rhimes (Creator of “Scandal” and “Grey’s Anatomy”) has choice words for her fellow Ivy Leaguers that would make Olivia Pope proud.

I cued this up to the six-minute mark because that’s when it gets so good. At 6:46, there’s a special dedication for dreamers. Go to 8:52 if you want to avoid living in a basement at any point in your life. And at 13:35 find out why you are sooo lucky right now. Only got a few moments to soak up the goodness? 17:02 is a must see for parents or if the thought of having babies makes you feel all fuzzy (or a little dizzy) inside.

I Usually Hate Watching Moms And Kids Cry Their Faces Off, But Today I'll Make An Exception

When I think about my friends in the military, I just hope they make it home safe to their families to live long, healthy lives. Every soldier should get a return like this, and should continue to thrive on U.S. soil and be successful in life. Cheers to all of these beautiful families.


Unfortunately, many soldiers do not get this kind of return. They come back to huge economic hardships and mental and physical health problems. It is a terrible way to welcome home our veterans, and sort of embarrassing for us as a country. However, there are organizations that help our returning troops get the support they need, and you can learn more about them by clicking here.

The woman who everyone keeps hugging is professional athlete and Member of Parliament Louisa Wall, the representative who sponsored the bill. She also happens to be gay, so this one had some special meaning for her. Bet she would love it if you shared this.
