Shared video (#1)


I happened to stumble upon this video this morning.

Ironically I felt just like the little boy in this video. I felt stupid and didn’t belong to other kids “similar” to me.

Overhearing people talk about me.

I love when the guy says.

“We all know art doesn’t pay the bill.”

Neither does being negative and bringing others down.

Pay your soul a visit and not the bank.

In the video, the lady turns her face with disgust. It seems to me she could possibly be an “artist” as well.

People hate the arts. Give it a chance my dudes.

A valuation someone gives you of yourself does not define you.

You yourself define who you are not another person……

People who define other people. DO they know a definition of themselves?

We live in a world of labels and numbers the soul is forgotten.

Give this video a watch for some daily inspiration! 😀

  1. I wish my father and teachers had seen this video. My father always told me I was dumb, ugly and stupid and would amount to nothing. Teachers would bully me because my siblings had caused problems, I was told that I would be a waste of space. After an unsuccessful dysfunctional abusive marriage I have studied and gained a Degree in Health Science Nursing, have wriiten and published a book, and now I continue write, do art and craft. I will say its been a real struggle but with determination I have won the emotional battle.

  2. I absolutely love this. I have 2 children (both in primary school) If my children fail a subject but put in 110% effort then i’m a happy and PROUD mum. My children thrive in a variety of subjects which may not always be academic and that’s OK! The way they treat others, the way they treat themselves and the positive impact they have on this world is far more important.

    • Me too. That is why I shared it hahaha. 😃

      Yes, all that matters is you put your effort in. We are not all “skilled” the same.

      We all are individual unique selves.

      Express your unique self to this world.

      Yes. We need to have our children grow up in a healthier environment. Most are told how to live this life.

      No one is taught how to look within themselves to see what they are capable of.

      Keep on believing in your children!

      Much love!

    • Awesome!

      I agree as well. Parents can actually interact with their children then instead of throwing your child into a random system.


      I always felt like an idiot and stupid in school.

      Once I graduated I started to feel more “normal.”

      Now I have chosen the path of an artist.

      Quite the different path than most.

      One day the world will understand “love” is the answer. Not division.

    • Exactly.

      Otherwise, you will end up believing in a false version of yourself.

      We do not want that.

      Look within and see who “you” are.

      Instead of listening to people telling “you” who you are.


    • The soul is missing within a lot of individuals. You have to connect to your higher self. The moment is where life belongs. All we possess is the moment and that is it. Everyone is lost in the matrix.

      Become a product of your environment or think for yourself.

      Yes, every moment is a moment for you to work on yourself.


  3. As one who struggled in school, this resonated deeply with me. Now I’m in the process of realizing I define myself, not how I did in school, not by what others think defines me. Thanks so much for sharing this video. 👏👏👏

    • Happy you can relate to the video.

      The school system is not for everyone.

      In my opinion, it is wiser to homeschool your children.

      They can find their individual unique self easier.

      Good luck with raising your children!


  4. Hi Brandon, firstly I love Jay Shetty.. An amazing man. I totally relate to this video. When my son was eight years old, the teacher said to me “ just face it your son is not very bright and he’s going to struggle in the world.” I was shocked, I was sad, I was disappointed and then I was angry at her the categorising him. As it turned out the classroom was not the best learning platform for him in the world. He is 21 now he is smart, he is successful, he is kind, he is wise, he is amazing, and to say I’m proud is putting it mildly. You have inspired me to write a post about this also I will share yours with in mine. Thank you 🙏

    • Hello! Same all his videos are inspiring.

      Damn, those are some harsh words to describe about a little boy. I would be disappointed at the teacher as well.

      I can relate to your son. I hardly related to the school system.

      Happy to hear your son is in the process of becoming his greatest version.

      Great to hear that!

      Going to read your post for sure.

      I appreciate the mass amounts of energy and love in your comment can feel your positivity! ❤❤❤

      Thank you as well! 😊

  5. Hi Brendan. First I’d like to say I love Jay Shetty. He’s amazing I love listening to him. Next, I totally relate to your post and the video. My son when he was eight years old had a similar experience. Whilst he didn’t overhear the teacher, it was my experience on hearing these words. The teacher bluntly said to me “look just face it your son is not very bright and he is going to struggle in the world”. Wow, firstly I was shocked, then saddened, disappointed and then I was angry that she categorized my son at that young age.

    Thankfully he was moving into another year and had another teacher that the school did not give him the support that he needed.

    I took him to a new school as it turns out the classroom was not his best learning platform.

    He is now 21 years old, he is kind, he is compassionate, he is successful and highly respected in his current occupation, He is very smart, he is wise, he is admired by friend and peers, he is funny, hilarious in fact. He can recite facts that will floor his audience. Particularly sports facts. He is amazing, and he is my son and to say I’m proud is putting it mildly. You’ve inspired me to share a post and link your post into it on the same subject. Thanks for sharing Brendan

    • It is okay. No worries! 😊

      I usually have to approve comments before they are published.

      They are both a little different. You added other things about your son.

      Hahaha. I understand. When I write on my phone everything autocorrect’s.

      Exactly hahaah.

      For sure, I appreciate your loving energy! ❤❤

  7. Thank you for this Brandon. We all need to be encouraged as artists, but family, schools and society at large only see us as “not serious”. It took me a long time to shake off that judgement and trudge along in jobs against my nature and beliefs….to pay the bills ! You might like a film with Anne Hathaway and (Tony?) Sturgess, set from 1988 to 2006, called One Day, I think 🤔.
    Have a nice day. Beating Rain here in Toulouse, today. April showers bring May flowers.

    • No problem! Happy you enjoyed the video.

      That is very true. In school, I was never taken seriously. Pretty sure some individuals think I am insane but I could care less at this point. No one is their unique self. Everyone I talk to seems to be the same person.

      People fear to express themselves.

      Life should not be about money. Money is always there. Money was invented by man. Money is imaginary and it controls peoples lives and ruins peoples lives.

      This world confuses me. This is why i express myself, hahahahhaha.

      I’ll check it out for sure!

      Thanks for the share.

      For sure. You have a great night! 😊

      Sorry responding kinda late, hahhaha.

  8. So long as you are not hurting anyone along the way, don’t ever stop doing what makes you happy. Continue making art. Continue living the life you want. You don’t owe anyone other than yourself and those who genuinely and graciously stand by your side. Good luck!

    • Exactly. Keep doing what makes you happy as long as you are harming no one else.

      I will for sure. Yes the life that is best for yourself.

      The ones who accept you for you will come into your life when the universe is ready.

      Thank you!

      Good luck to you as well!
