We can cry about it or we can dance about it

At some point during my sophomore year I ran across a character known as Kid President.  He made great videos like 20 things we should say more often and a pep talk.  I loved them all.  Kid President has a way of having a smile creep across your face until you’re grinning like a fool.

Today I re-watched his pep talk. Take a few minutes to watch the video, I promise it’ll be worth it.

He’s right– what if Michael Jordan had quit?  He wouldn’t have made Space Jam (and been the greatest basketball player of all time).

We can let things beat us down and defeat us or we can play the cards we are dealt.  In other words, each of us has a choice.  You can give up or you can decide to make the best out of your situation.

“We can cry about it or we can dance about it.” –Kid President


I’m not sure what’s going to be my Space Jam, but I’m sure looking for it.  And while I’m at it, I’m definitely going to dance.

And you should too.

Taking a second to dance can help make your day a little better if you happy dance when you eat, dance along to your favorite song on the radio or, if you’re like me, dancing in front of mirrors… and snap chatting it.

I’m unwilling to spend any of my last 23 days here at Carolina letting subpar situations get the best of me.  Nope.

I’m going to dance about it.

I couldn’t have said it better than Kid President: “It’s everyone’s duty to give the world a reason to dance.”

I’m not sure how I’m going to make the world dance, but I’m working on it.
