Do It For Yourself

Posted by Tom Locke on September 29th, 2017 filed in General, Life, Music

Many of us put a lot of pride and joy into what we do.   And often it’s the case that we don’t receive any recognition for our efforts.   And, sometimes the people we do things for aren’t happy with what we’ve done.

Trying to please everyone and waiting for others to tell us we’re great, or our work is exceptional, can be frustrating – because it may never happen. Pursue what you love, do the best you can, and let it go.

As Rick Nelson proclaimed in his song ‘Garden Party’:

But it’s all right now, I learned my lesson well.
You see, ya can’t please everyone, so ya got to please yourself.
