Never Grow Up

A frequently cited message from Taylor Swift's Never Grow Up, used in this well done Walmart commercial, is to grab and hold youth as growing up is difficult.

But when advertising execs combined the song with home videos of Christmas morning, other pearls of wisdom are offered.

Like this one...

Wherever you are in life in 2013.

Never pass on the opportunity to bring joy someone else.



It will likely be an act of kindness that the recipient will never forget, and hopefully inspire them to do the same (for more see Acts 20:35).

Note: When I hear a popular song, I usually get distracted on YouTube looking at aspiring performers covering the hit. Some are nice tries, others are good, but a few are fantastic. As such, I vote NYU student, Claire Bufalino, as having the best cover version of Never Grow Up. Great voice and creative. It is worth a watch.



Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone.

You are right, I liked her version too. I wonder if I could do that with a cup, looks like good exercise! Of course, I can't sing as well as the young woman!
Merry Christmas!

God bless you...you "get it".

Love the video.
(and the wide-eyed innocence that came with childhood).

Stay safe out there.

I love the concept of paying forward. It's all about positive Karma and feeling good about helping others.

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, Slam Dunks!
