Define yourself and live out your dream.

Decide what you want to be and how you want to do it. Often times the hardest thing to do is to simply make a decision. Once you decide what you will be, there begins your journey to the rest of your life. Define yourself. Don’t let anyone tell you what you can and can not be. You must define your self and live out your greatness.

 

Those people will always say You are Wrong. @angieandthecool

Expect Criticism

At some point you just have to set your standard and go with what you want regardless of how many people say you are wrong. You will never please every one. Someone is always going to say you are wrong. I’ve come across 3 types of common critical persons. 1. Some think that money is their measure of success. They are extremely into money. If you are not making money they think that you are wrong and unsuccessful. That is a standard that they have set for themselves and criticize others for not wanting the same.

2. Some people focus on doing for others and helping the needy.  That’s their measure of success.  That’s their standard of living. If they spend time in a homeless shelter volunteering, they feel successful. If they spend time helping the elderly, they feel successful. They’ve set that as a standard for themselves. If they spend the rest of their lives teaching children to learn, they will be fulfilled.

3. Many people are into notoriety, fame, and prestige.  They feel it is necessary to be famous. But some run away from fame. They hate it.  Instead they look  for anonymity and freedom from responsibility. What’s funny about this  is that some people have set a standard and set specific boundaries and exceptions. For instance, there are many people who are famous online, but anonymous in their neighborhood and home town. There is this level of freedom that they enjoy.

You have to set your own standards and acknowledge what is important to you. Assess yourself. What do you really want. Ignore the negative chatter of others who say you are wrong. They are saying that because they have defined what is important to them and they have set a standard for themselves.  There are many people in your life and each of them have their own view. You just can’t please everyone. So no matter what you set as a standard for yourself, someone is going to tell you that you are wrong. Therefore, expect criticism.

Check out the music. You will love it.

 

100 Friends.

Often we let our minds wonder about what could be. At the end of the day, we all just want to be happy and healthy. For me, happiness is laughing, dancing and living gratefully. Happiness is feeling safe and healthy around those who inspire us.  It’s living out your passion. For me, that means continuing to share music with as many people as possible. Thank all of you for your support.  Follow me on my journey, as I share 100 songs with 100 friends, fans, and family.
