Over the Christmas and New Year holiday period I spent a fair bit of my time in Sydney, hanging out with some family members. It was a fun, relaxing, and immensely enjoyable time and I came home feeling very happy and positive from the experience. That's what happens when you spend time with quality people. But I'm not writing about that today. This article is about a guy my brother told me to check out on youtube. A guy who has seen a lot bad stuff and had a lot of negativity in his life. A guy who was heavily addicted to drugs and alcohol, and was spiralling out of control until he nearly died when he was run down by a car. This article is about Tommy Franklin.
Tommy Franklin. The man who just pops in his iPod and busts out dance moves in public, grooving his way through the streets and making people smile. He doesn't care what others think about him - he just loves to dance and express himself. It makes him happy so he does it.
I recommended that everyone watches the Tommy Franklin Story (video below). You will be amazed. He is a calm, well spoken, lovely man who is just doing what makes him happy. He's not crazy - he's just likes to dance and smile and is not afraid to show it.
The Tommy Franklin Story
We could all take a leaf out of Tommy's book and start thinking less about how others see us and more about finding and doing what actually makes us happy.
