“Do you know what happens when you decide to stop worrying about what other people might think of you? You get to dance. You get to sing. You get to laugh loudly, paint, write, and create. You get to be yourself. And you know what? Some people won’t like you. Some will laugh or mock or point out flaws…but it just won’t bother you all that much.” – Doe Zantamata
This is so truthful in my perspective. Worrying about what other people think has kept me from doing things, taking risks, having adventures, and embracing life more times than I care to remember. And it never really mattered. Because either none of those people I was worried about cared a rats ass about me, it was simply social posturing and ego. or I simply made up what other people “might” think of me and reacted to that. Most people simply don’t care what your doing except for a momentary snapshot of attention and then it’s gone. How do I know that? Because that’s my experience of others. Nothing lasts very long in the “minds eye.” (That sounded really neat but I’m not exactly sure of what that is!”)
So Dance, Sing, Write, Create, and always speak your truthful position. People will do what people do, and you get to have the reward of experiencing who you are without any mask. How amazing and wonderful.
The image posted on this blog is something I did last year. I have no explanation of it outside that it was fun to do while listening to Arcade Fire, one of my favorite bands. (I have a lot of favorite bands.) People will like it, not like it, or just don’t care. All of which is super!!! Because to me it’s a little bit of me that’s fun to share because I like it. I care deeply about it for no reason at all! Express yourself with love and wonder!!!!
