I absolutely love watching biographies on A & E. I don't care if it's someone I'm a fan of or not. I don't even care if I have never heard of the person. There's just something about hearing about what someone's life was like before they were considered successful. Well, this morning, it was country singer, Toby Keith. Very interesting and not hard on the eyes either. And he said something that was really interesting to me, which relates to writing.The interviewer read a very positive review to him. Apparently he hadn't read it or even heard about it. He smiled and chuckled and was genuinely pleased. So she asked him what reviews meant to him. He said he doesn't give his critics any weight at all. Why? Because he reasoned, if he gives merit to the good ones, he has to do the same for the bad ones. And he added, "nobody's that good and nobody's that bad." Hmmm...pretty good, huh?
It's true, isn't it? Nobody is THAT good and nobody is THAT bad. All we can hope, is to be who we were meant to be. If we can do that, nothing outside of our destiny will matter.
