Thought for the Week…

tumblr_n7kv409MRN1rh2tw8o1_500It is an impossible task. The moment you start trying to please everyone is the moment you set yourself up to fail. And it takes so much energy…it is exhausting. So set a new goal. Work to please yourself and those that are important to you. And, know that even then you will sometimes not please them. But that’s okay. You aren’t perfect no matter how much you try to be. And that’s a good thing.
