Ellen DeGeneres Commencement Speech at Tulane University (2009-05-16)
"be true to yourself, and all will be okay" ~ ellen degeneres
like any other people out there trying to find their way and meaning in life, the path may not always be easy, and oftentimes, the painful experiences are where hidden realization lies. other times they just slogged their way through. i made a decision last week to turn down an offer for a good paying job. it would have been hard for me to make this decision a couple of months back but this time it felt right and it was easy. it felt good even, a burden has finally been lifted off my heart and shoulder. i felt free.
i followed my heart. i am a sensitive and being around people whom vibrates not in love and respect can really hurt me. literally. i get ill, weak and exhausted. it doesn't mean that they are bad people. they, like everything and everyone on this planet have roles to play. this particular person had made me realize who i truly am, where i stand. my truth. to this person, i am grateful.
and here's ellen degerenes, being so funny in her speech sharing her story of success. enjoy!
