I once heard a great quote once, don’t quite remember who it was by but it went something like this ‘Live a life true to yourself not one others expect of you’ and that has stuck with me throughout the years. It’s part of the reason i started this blog in the first place…it was something i genuinely wanted to do despite the initial criticism in the beginning. I followed my own path and now i can honestly say this has grown into something bigger than i could have imagined. Knowing i’ve made someone’s day through music (my very own outlet)…well it makes it all worth it. So be yourself and follow your dreams, if not…what’s the point of anything?
This playlist includes music from many different artists who i can surmise feel the same way. Just be yourself, what have you got to lose? Don’t waste your life following someone else’s idea of what success means. Make it your own.
