Go Go Granola & A Pause…

We’re halfway through the 10 part summer series, “The Total Package – Differentiators You Won’t Find on a Resume,” and I’m going to pause for one post. Read below and listen here. {Post dedicated to future Baby Sully, her amazing parents and all those reading this who are eternally young at heart. ♥)

Granola 1

“Give back to community that raised you up
Read Langston Hughes, I suggest “A Raisin in the Sun”
Listen to Sam Cooke, a change gon’ come
You put the work in, don’t worry about the praise, my love

Granola 2

“Don’t try to change the world, find something that you love
And do it every day
Do that for the rest of your life
And eventually, the world will change”

Granola 3

“I recommend that you read ‘The Alchemist’
Tell the truth, regardless of the consequence
Don’t wake your mom up, do yoga, learn ’bout karma
Find God, but leave the dogma

Granola 4

“The quickest way to happiness? Learning to be selfless
Ask more questions, talk about yourself less
Study David Bowie, James Baldwin and 2Pac
Watch the sun set with best friends from a rooftop”

Granola 5

“Go to festivals, camp, fall in love and dance
You’re only young once, my loved one, this is your chance
Take risks, cause life moves so fast
You’re only young once, my loved one, this is your chance”

Granola 6
