Like a fish in water

Actually, don't be quite like that. This video is a visual representation of a speech about the power to change your perspective on life.

There are about 3 minutes of positive talk in this. The message that comes out is about observing life with awareness. Don't overlook or take for granted the experience by being the experience. Rather,  with mindfulness, observe it and participate in it. Don't become so engrossed that the experience becomes unfulfilling.

If that makes sense to you and you want some additional support, then go see a therapist who works with mindfulness. If that makes no sense to you AND you want to figure it out, then go see a therapist who works with mindfulness.

This is the work I do everyday and it's so much fun. I'm so happy to have had this lesson of awareness from my mentor in grad school. And I am happy to bring this way of change to people who come to me for support.

So be a fish aware of water. As a way to send the message of a speech given at a graduation, the video is useful. I don't know how well high school or even college students will get the idea of awareness given their stage of life. But when you're ready, there are people to help. Like me (or I can provide a referral).
