“By your own soul, learn to live
And if men thwart you take no heed.
If men hate you have no care.
Sing your song, dream your dream,
Hope your hope and pray your prayer.”
-Parkenham Beatty

Sometimes you need a little reminder to just ignore the noise and keep on doing you. Yesterday was my birthday, which is a great time to reflect on life and take stock of where you are. For me, a lot has changed in the last two years and sometimes I’m amazed at just how far I’ve come. Although I get a bit down on myself for not being exactly where I’d like to be, when that happens I remind myself that I might not be to the mountaintop yet, but it’s coming. And along the way I’m going to enjoy the climb.

Clutchettes, while it feels like we have years and years to live…the truth is, tomorrow is never promised and life is way too short to spend it being unhappy. Whatever it is that isn’t feeding your heart and soul, consider getting rid of it and finding something that does. Listen to what makes you happy and fulfilled and run toward it as fast and as furious as you can.

Happy Thursday!
