What makes you happy?

June 29, 2012

From the moment we’re born, we’re taught to please other people. First our parents, then our teachers, then throw in friends and a significant other and children and the cycle continues. Just ask the 5 year old girl what she wants to be when she grows up. She’ll look up at her mom, smile and say “a doctor.” Or as one of my nieces used to say ” gynecologist” Like seriously? Do 5 year olds even know what a gynecologist does?

So it’s no wonder that after all those years of making everyone else happy, the little voices inside our head learn to be quiet.

The sad thing is- if you let it be quiet your entire life, it’ll scream at you with years and years of pent up anger and frustration. In your final days. And then it’ll be too late.

Do what makes you happy. Do what you love. Impress yourself first.
