Conan O’Brien: Life Is Not Fair

Happy Friday!

This has been circulating the Interwebs this week but I love it because its funny, heartwarming, and honest.  Enjoy this video of Conan O’ Brien, the ginger of my dreams, presenting the commencement speech to Dartmouth College.  It’s a great mix of empowering and hilarious and with a theme of failure, it hits close to home for me.

My favorite quote?

It is our failure to become our perceived ideal that ultimately defines us and makes us unique. It’s not easy, but if you accept your misfortune and handle it right, your perceived failure can be a catalyst for profound re-invention.

    • I love Conan! Especially when I consider all the things he’s gone through in the past year – fully in the public eye – and to come out the other end with such great advice and perspective. Plus he’s funny as hell!
