I. Love. This. Billboard.
I don't know why, really. Maybe it's because I grew up on Big Bird and Miss Piggy and Vampires that "count." Maybe it's because I like talking frogs. Whatever the reason, I saw this, and could not stop laughing.
But then, of course, like any good ad will do, it made me think...
People may not always understand your dreams. They may not agree with them or like them. They might sneer and snicker and smirk. They might stand back and ogle you like you've grown a third arm and suddenly started speaking parseltongue...
And that's okay. They're YOUR dreams, not theirs.
Like Mark Twain said, "Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."
I love things that inspire us to be better and challenge us to conquer the world, so after seeing this brilliant billboard, I decided to look into its sponsor: The Foundation for a Better Life.
"The Foundation for a Better Life recognizes that everyone views the world through a unique lens and our objective is to provide a wide spectrum of values that are universal, encouraging and inspiring."
"How wonderful!" says I, and then I started clicking around.
They've got more slogans like Kermit's, and loads of quotes (my favorite!...if you couldn't tell...), like this one:
(I know, I know, another Mark Twain quote...)
You can find the website HERE.
Go have a look around, and be inspired to do something great!
What are your dreams?...And what are you doing to live them?
