The other night I engaged in some Netflix binge watching... with absolutely no remorse. Wanna know why? Because Kimmy Schmidt is my freakin hero. I'm serious. In the show, Kimmy is rescued from a doomsday cult where she had been abducted as a teenager and kept in an underground bunker for fifteen years. Now, rather than return home to Indiana she attempts to reboot her life in New York City.
Kimmy is determined to be seen as something other than a victim. She will not allow an unfortunate event to define her. Unbreakable. Look, we've all had shit happen to us over which we had no control. Hopefully it didn't involve being held in an underground bunker. Ultimately, it is still your responsibility to create a life that reflects your values and satisfies your soul. Either get busy living... or get busy dying. Kimmy Schmidt, I salute you.
