Be Happy...Be Yourself

I don’t believe in guilty pleasures. If you f***ing like something, like it. That’s what’s wrong with our generation: that residual punk rock guilt, like, “You’re not supposed to like that. That’s not f***ing cool.” Don’t f***ing think it’s not cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic.” It is cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic”! Why the f**k not? F**k you! That’s who I am, godd**n it! That whole guilty pleasure thing is full of f**king s**t.”
-Dave Grohl

I’ve basically been saying this same thing for forever…minus all the curse words, of course.  

Stop caring what others think about you, or what makes you seem cool. Do something that you want to do, not because it makes someone else happy.

Love what you love and be yourself.

As Dr. Suess always say, “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
