Whenever I clean toilets (which happens quite a lot because of airbnb), I always think to myself, “I bet Kim Kardashian doesn’t have to clean toilets.”
But then I remember that Kim Kardashian became famous because of a sex tape.
And then I think to myself, I’d much rather clean toilets and have my dignity than be famous for a sex tape.
There’s nothing more refreshing than having a clear-cut set of values that you can definitively rely on. Whenever I have mini-existential crises, I remind myself of these values. Then I grab my toilet brush, and get scrubbing.
