David Foster Wallace's 2005 commencement address at Kenyon College, Indiana: A Challenge to our Day-to-Day Way of Thinking.
My husband passed this really great video along to some friends and me. Pretty inspirational and challenging! In therapy we often look at a person's automatic thoughts and core beliefs, which can fuel negative feelings such as depression, frustration, anger and anxiety. In this speech, Wallace reminds us of the importance of being intentional about what we think, believe, perceive, and ultimately feel. A great way to reminds us to pay attention to what is really going on inside. Easier said than done but very worth doing. Click for "This is Water" by Davis Foster Wallace.
