a little truth and inspiration

You don’t have to get a job that makes others feel comfortable about what they perceive as your success. You don’t have to explain what you plan to do with your life. You don’t have to justify your education by demonstrating its financial rewards. You don’t have to maintain an impeccable credit score. Anyone who expects you to do any of those things has no sense of history or economics or science or the arts. -- You have to pay your electric bill. You have to be kind. You have to give it all you got. You have to find people who love you truly and love them back with the same truth. But that’s all.”

-Cheryl Strayed

Kaelah had this in her Things I Love Thursday post this week and it just really speaks to me. I feel like I'm constantly trying to explain my future plans and justify everything, and I'm a fool for having gone to school and not made billions from a lucrative career. Even though I'm paying all my bills, have a happy life and am full of love. It's silly! So here's to less explaining and more doing.
