“You’ve got the degree in philosophy, so you think you’re cleverer than me. But I’m not just some drama queen, cause it’s where you’re and not where you’ve been…”
How can something that important be better explained than with these two sentences. Amy Winehouse talks about it in her song Help Yourself.
LOVE WHAT YOU DO
As an old saying goes – “society makes people buy things they don’t need with money they don’t have to impress people they don’t like” – instead of enjoying theirselves and live life as it’s meant to be. We’re stuck to our work, follow the same procedure of things every single day, we get trained and taught to follow societies rules and behave like everyone else behaves – cause that’s what society does, right?… NO!
Open your mind and eyes and do what you like – now! Even Ludwig van Beethoven, one of the greatest classical composers in his day, never missed a chance to be himself and to act like it. He’d actually need his own Top 10 “scandals of the classical composers” as his whole (private) life was a worst case scenario in the eyes of society these days. You need an example? There you go: July 1812 | While Johann Wolfang v. Goethe bows low at a stay in Teplice, near Prague, in front of a walking group of nobleman, Beethoven jostles through the middle of the aristocratic party. Noble patrons? Not of his interest… “real art is stubborn” – Ludwig van Beethoven
Be yourself, and do what you love! Like these guys do on the streets of San Francisco.
