What I Know for Sure Sundays: Do what makes YOU happy

One thing I have learned in life:

Regardless of what you do or don't do people will ALWAYS have something to say-- Either you're too skinny, or too fat, or too tall, or too short, or too arrogant, or too shy, or too ambitious, or too careless, or too loving, or too dry. People will always have an opinion. Hence, do yourself a favor and make a conscious effort to always do what makes YOU happy. As long as you aren't hurting anyone, your happiness should always come first.

Remember that at the end of the day, you're the one that will have to deal with the decisions you make in life. No one else. You are the one that will go to bed at night and wake up in the morning with the consequences of your actions- or lack thereof.

Dont smother your dreams, don't smother the best in you-

Steve Jobs had some incredible things to say about this:

If you haven't seen the commencement speech he made a Stanford years ago, please take some time to watch it. You'll remember this message forever. Check it out here.

How ironic, I just realized he made this speech, the same year I graduated from college.

So, in summary, this is what I know for sure:

Everyone always and will always have an opinion. Hence, for life decisions, listen to yourself, to your instinct and follow your own heart. <3

Tell me-- have you ever done something (or not) based on someone's opinion? what happened?
