Maya Angelou dares to truly be who she is and its like every word she speaks and writes has been carefully curated for the moment. What a way to live, and what a powerful presence!
By the way, on the subject of “pleasing people”, did you know that Albert Einstein was akin to a failure in his father’s eyes as he had crappy grades and worked at a patent office. He always wished he could please his dad. His dad died before he produced the work that we know to be true genius. So, perhaps trying to please people and suffering for their lack of approval is needless? xoxo Dana
