If you haven't heard about Parks and Rec, where have you been? The first six seasons are on Netflix and you need to go watch them now. Like right now. One of the characters, Andy Dwyer, begins as someone that you will not be able to stand; but as the seasons progress you will fall in love with his goofiness and honesty. He is never afraid to be himself, unless he's Bert Macklin (of course), and that is someone who we all aspire to be like. He will teach you lessons about love, trust and friendship. His loyalty and kindness towards others is something that leaves a lasting impression, other than his lovable personality. So here are five things that Andy Dwyer has taught us over seven magical seasons.
1. It is okay not to know everything.
Life is about learning. You are going to stumble along the way and it is better to admit you don't know rather than pretend you're something you're not.
2. When you need to, just let it all out.
Everyone has those days, and I mean everyone. When you need to, let it out. People will be understanding and you might be surprised to see who is in the same boat as you. You never know.
3. If you act like you know what you're talking about, sometimes people will believe you.
This might contradict number 1 a bit, but sometimes it's okay to talk about things you know nothing about. Especially because it is even funnier when people are really taking in everything you say.
4. You learn something new everyday.
Life is full of ups and downs but the best way to look at them is as learning experiences. Also, learning is a privilege. Use that to your advantage. An education is something valuable that not everyone is fortunate enough to receive so take hold of that knowledge and learn from it and love it.
5. You can do anything you put your mind to.
You are unstoppable! People accomplish amazing things everyday so why can't you? You can do anything you set your mind to!
