Over-rated

December 3, 2013 § 1 Comment

Getting a new pose.

Marriage.

Sex.

Home ownership.

Fame and Fortune.

Building your ‘personal brand’.

MBAs.

Climbing the corporate ladder.

Being the life of the party.

Getting 4,097,762 followers on Twitter/Facebook/Instagram, etc.

SUVs.

Scoring Black Friday deals.

Scoring Cyber Monday deals.

Telling everyone you’re “giving” on Giving Tuesday (WTF is this?!).

Christmas.

***

(I also want to add ‘pregnancy’ and ‘motherhood’ to this list but while it’s over-rated to me, it probably isn’t for the 99 percent of women out there of a child-bearing age, especially those who are desperately trying).

You know what’s under-rated? Holding your tongue in check. Thinking before acting. Listening instead of interrupting. Realizing that not everything’s about ‘me me me’ all the time. Observing instead of acting. Shutting up.
