Be Yourself

“”Be yourself. No one can say you’re doing it wrong.”  Snoopy”
Charles M. Schulz

I am one of the many people who grew up with the Peanuts gang, and it was a sad day when Schultz died.  But in addition to sharing his passion for creativity with the world Schultz also shared a unique and inspirational perspective with all who would listen.

I share this quote from Snoopy and his creator because it is a word of encouragement for all of us who are creative.  It’s human nature to criticize things unfortunately.  Maybe you’ve had people tell you they didn’t like your work or what you created.  Maybe they’ve even said that you weren’t “allowed” to do what you did.

I’m going to agree with Snoopy and say that they’re wrong.  If what you’re creating is an extension of who you are and what you love, there’s no one in the world who can say that it’s not right or done wrong.  You’re the only one who knows if what you’re creating feels right and makes you happy.

So this holiday season as you create the many gifts and givings you make, remember that people find, buy and like your creations because they’re created by you.

One thought on “Be Yourself

  1. I am criticized and questioned on a daily basis. I think it comes with being in marketing. Amazing, no one has an idea until Marketing delivers and then they’re all card carrying experts. I need to remember this one. Plus, who can argue with Snoopy?
