In the Graduation Commencement speech that I watched today, she talked about two main things. She talked about benefits on failure and the importance of imagination. Her speech was definitely one of the best speeches I have ever heard. I loved her speech because she was funny and very outgoing. I don't like the long boring speeches. Her's was definitely not boring at all. When she was talking about the benefits of failure, she said that it is okay to fail as long as you try your best. In her life, she did fail in her younger years but she came out of it and now she is the best. Failure can be okay if its something that will push you forward. It is definitely impossible to live without failure. You will always live with failure. You will have your failure moments but you will come out of them. You definitely aren't going to live in failure. Life is not a failure itself. Life is a beautiful thing so you have to sit back and enjoy it. The other thing she talked about was the importance of imagination. She was really pulling at some heart strings when she was talking about that. While she was talking about that, she was telling about her worst nightmare. Her worst nightmare was when she was younger, in her 20's, when she was working. She never dreamed about that ever happening to her but it did. She definitely doesn't regret it or anything, it's just part of life and you have to move on. She also talked about not being judgmental. If you're a judgmental person, you will get no where in life because no will ever want to be your friend. If you don't judge you will have so many friends from all over the world, you would be so amazed. Judging is a mean thing, whether you're being racist or to calling someone a name or to calling someone fat. It all hurts no matter what it is. "Human beings can do anything or learn anything without having any actual experience" said by J.K. Rolling. Life is a good thing so do whatever you can to get out and enjoy it because if you don't, you will live the worst life ever. Don't be a hateful person about your life, love your life no matter what.
