You know when you read something so good you want to immediately share it? Yeah, that just happened. Check out this excerpt from a post from I Am Begging My Mother Not To Read This Blog:
Every damn time someone in my facebook feed posts something like this, I click it. Every damn time.
We all have this facebook friend, right? People you genuinely love and admire. People you like hanging out with. People you invite to your birthday parties. You know. Actual friends. Until you’ve clicked links exactly like this again and again and again. For YEARS. And all of a sudden, you start to wonder if this is some elaborate hoax, if you’ve actually just been reading the same article over and over.
It’s not like I have anything against happiness, or success, or meditation, or yoga, or being nice, or smiling more, or eating healthy, or losing weight, or being your best you, or embracing the day with a positive attitude. Those all sound great. Honestly, they do. And there are some really smart, simple truths to be found in all of those articles. There truly are.
It’s just that I have a problem with being told to do all of those things by skinny blonde ladies laughing on a beach wearing yoga pants.
Go over the blog and read the rest. It is definitely worth it! (Note: obviously, it does contain some adult language.)
I am constantly drawn in by the “____ Ways to Be Happier” style articles. I admit, I love them. But I also absolutely love the honesty, and reality, of I am Begging My Mother’s post.
