You Can't Please Everyone

At work, important wisdom from my boss and mom: "You have to please yourself." My desire to please everyone at all times at all costs is something I bump up against quite frequently, and there's a lesson there I have to keep relearning. To put it in the words of musical artist India Arie:

Just for today
I will not worry what tomorrow will bring, no
I’m gonna try something new and walk through this day
Like I’ve got nothing to prove, yeah
Although I have the best intentions
I can't predict anyone's reactions
So I’ll just do my best

Words to live by. I hope I can. I hope I do.
