Today’s post is equal parts funny, inspiration, and wisdom. It was originally written by Mary Schmich as a hypothetical commencement speech for the class of 1999 and was published in the Chicago Tribune. Later, Baz Luhrmann mixed it into the spoken word song below. This actually became famous because it was the subject of a viral email in the early thousands (!!), does anyone on here remember that on their first email accounts? My friend Ben shared this with me some time ago, and every time I listen to it I feel a bit more grounded and present.
I wanted to share it with you babes, in the hope that it would connect with you in some way on this fine Tuesday. Below is my favorite line from it, enjoy! Xo, Remi
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.
