Just this morning, a friend sent me a link to a site called The Life of Y, with a little blurb that this was a project done by her sister's friend who was getting married this weekend. I clicked on the link, saw the homepage, and thought, "Oh, I hope this is not one of those wedding websites," and was prepared to file it to my backlog of websites to check out later. (The homepage picture is of a pregnant woman, so it only made sense I thought it was another personal exploitation page.)
But something caught my eye, and thirty minutes later, I am sitting here at the computer desk, delaying going into work even further, writing this entry because something on her website struck a chord in me.
You could think of the project as a PostSecret, except the creator, Erin Ruffin, asks the generation Y kids one question: "If you could say one sentence, knowing the whole world is listening, what would you say?" And the results make us hopeful once again in our generation. Because we are "ridiculously, irrationally, undeservingly talented."
Of course, Erin, a writer, is very eloquent and says everything I want to say but can't formulate in my muddled brain. After perusing her site, I was instantly reminded of why we started this Something Inspirational blog in the first place: to help us "DREAM BIGGER."
I highly recommend you read the stories that accompany some of the photos. Then you'll understand from where these quotes came. Unfortunately, there's not very much content on the site as of this moment, but she promises a massive update in the near future.
On a personal note, I think it's time for me to step it up a notch.
P.S. I leave you with this photo that made me chuckle. Sure, if I were to leave a one-line legacy, why not my phone number?
