A Desiderata for Gen Y
Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in the mute button.
As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all your facebook contacts.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even bloggers, they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit and probably Liberal voters. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself…. Kim Kardashian for example.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however non-existent; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time and at least something for your C.V.
Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of Nigerian online scammers. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Selfie moment!!!
Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection on Tinder. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass. And just as comfortable to walk all over.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth – with the possible exception of jeggings – please keep them to yourself.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness or on-line trolls.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here*
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. Just don’t tweet about it – okay.
And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a totes amazing world.
Be : ) . Strive to be :-).
Never “Google” yourself naked.
