Over the past few weeks I have really been focusing on putting myself first and making a better life for me. Being unemployed has given me time to think and realize the things that are important to me. I have made fitness, education, employment and happiness priorities in life. I think often we take a lot for granted and we end up miserable because we forget what is important.
Over the past few weeks I have written a few blog posts about women and the way they change themselves for men. One post I wrote that got a lot of comments was my response to a One Night Stand Letter. In it I wrote “What makes you sexy is not caring what anyone else thinks. Focus on you. Be happy with you. Then the right guy will come your way.” And the men gave me a lot of flack for it. Apparently they believed this was a very “female” thought and not fitting with the male perspective. I really started to doubt myself until I heard a little speech from Ashton Kutcher. Okay now before you turn away and think I have hopped on the crazy train hear me out.
I recently heard the speech Ashton gave at the Teen Choice awards and I have to say it could not have come at a better time in my life.
In the speech he said that, ““The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart. And being thoughtful. And being generous. Everything else is crap!”
I have to say I couldn’t agree more and he really validated for me that there are men out there who do think that way! I wasn’t dreaming.
Ashton’s speech really is inspiring. He talks about the importance of hard work and the importance of appreciating what you have and making the best out of everything. Its a lesson I am teaching myself and the speech really came at a great time.
Take a listen to the speech maybe its something you need to hear too!
Have you ever heard words of wisdom from a totally unexpected place and couldn’t be more grateful?
