What's new?

09.11.13 - From @MillaJovovich: hey everyone! check out my new post on fb! its a long one, but i think you'll enjoy it!

i did a job with a client (no names) who i found out purchased his kids "some islands" for their birthdays. wtf??!! yes. some islands. pretty nifty gift right? i don't effin think so!

all i could think was "what an evil thing to do". how can you take everything good out of your children's lives by choking them with STUFF?

what do these kids have to look forward to? what do they have to work for, to achieve in their lives when their father is stuffing "some islands" down their throats? how can you grow up with a feeling of self worth, of confidence when everything is given to you and you have nothing more to dream of?

its almost like as a parent, you're trying to guarantee a life of hookers and drugs for your kids...

because if the only thing left to give is "some islands" then they must be bloated with everything else you can imagine, cars, houses, planes... it's disgusting. it's a sin. i believe when you don't give your kids a chance to deserve all these things for themselves, they will grow up to be insecure, self loathing and jaded to the point of suicide.

what is left for them to want, to need? you've taken the -very- human quest for achievement and buried it in a mountain of THINGS that they didn't even have a chance to get for themselves.

i think as a parent living in this society, its a privilege we can give our kids, to achieve their own legacy. to find self respect through passion and commitment to what they love.

in this day and age, when things are so effin accessible to so many people, do we really need to get it all for them before they've had the chance to work for something on their own?

honestly, what's left in life when you "have it all"? especially when you haven't done a thing to deserve it? hatred for life, for yourself. what's left for these (ironically) unfortunate trustafarians to dream of and hope for? a needle in the arm is what i think.

it would take a pretty outstanding individual to survive these kinds of gifts unscathed and to still see the magic and beauty in life, to still feel IMPRESSED, to look at the world in AWE and RESPECT... to feel the thrill of simple things: a smile, someone doing something nice for you, a good book, a new flower, the way the sky looks in the morning, the laughter of a child.

children innately need to feel like they've done better than their parents to grow up. that's what i believe. and if we take that away from them, we have only ourselves to blame for the unfeeling monsters we unleash into the future.

and so it's with these thoughts in my head that i wrote this message to my daughter from the tooth fairy. i think it's a good one.

that's all for now! -m
