P.S. More dating advice from Ashley and me in this new video.
The best piece of advice I ever received
came from my friend Lindsay Robertson: “If you’re gonna be a band, make sure it’s called The Yaysayers.”
Snark is a powerful currency on the internet. And the three C’s of cynicism, criticism, and complaining are easy ways to score cheap points on social media.
But if we don’t take the time to unironically celebrate the things we are genuinely enthusiastic about, then what’s the point of all this?
As fishingboatproceeds previously said:
The other day I sent a tweet that exposed a breakfast scam artist.
Well said, kid.
And nice shout out to Wounded Warriors.
when life sucks
Honestly I owe so much to Josh Sundquist because life sucks sometimes and he taught me not to fall.
And that sounds so cheesy but it’s true because sometimes you just need someone to remind you that you need to stay standing.
Thank you Josh. I hope you check your tag because you’ve made such a difference to me (and so many others).
I’m honored to have played a role in helping you stay standing.
I want to say, though, that we are all in this life thing together. We ALL need people to catch us when we fall.
I don’t have it all figured out. Sometimes my life sucks, too, and in those times I’m lucky enough to have people I can lean on—my girlfriend, my family, my friends, and people who write me kind notes like yours.
My point is: we can only remain standing if we all lean on each other.
Now that might sound cheesy, but you can take it to the bank: Ain’t no other way to make it through the suck but to find some super human friends or family who have your back.
