Nicole Gibson founder of an organisation called Rogue and Rouge www.rogueandrouge.org.au tells adults how to make a difference in the younger peoples lives. guess how.. you probably never would have through that its just, being happy.
basically i thought this was rubbish when i heard it at first.. But then I started to think, maybe it makes sense. Maybe it is because adults say one thing and do another. They tell us that the only thing they want for us is to be happy, but when its up to them they are never happy, arnt they ment to set examples? They tell us that if we study hard and do as we are told, then life will be good to us. But then they show us that there is never enough, not enough time, not enough space, not enough energy and certainly not enough money. Adults can’t seem to unwind and they spend way too much time complaining.
They aren’t really painting a picture of a bright and happy future, are they?
Like who would ever want to live a life like that? What kind of inspiration and motivation is that? We hear about disengaged young people, but has anyone thought how many disengaged adults there are?
Adults always say the best part of there lives was school and that it was the most happy time as well, what they are really saying is that the happiness comes from living each day as it comes. Maybe being happy is living now, for the moment, for this minute in this hour and not focusing on what you do or don’t have or what you have left to do, but what there is.
So, I think Nicole’s comment is wripe… just be happy and you can change the world!!
