“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” ~Steve Jobs
...Wow, just wow. What an amazing man he was. I found this quote last night and it was exactly what I needed to hear. It is so easy to get discouraged and feel like your letting people down by not doing what they think you should be doing, but it is so important to follow your heart and do what you know you were made for.
This has been especially hard for me lately, I know a lot of people don't understand the fact that I don't have what most people consider a "real job" and that I help out with Dave's music. More and more I grow ok with that though. Some people just may never understand my choices in life...and that's ok. It hasn't been easy for me to get here, I am definitely a people pleaser at heart.
So thank you Steve Jobs for reminding us that creativity is a necessity, not a luxury. Where would we be without the creative minds of the world?
Oh and this post is on the perfect day, because today is my step-dad's birthday! Happy Birthday John!! He is the one that got me into apple products :) Hope you have a wonderful day, we love you!
