The second most important thing is knowing that others enjoy and appreciate your efforts. That someone, somewhere likes the product of your work gives you a warm glow of satisfaction.

The first most important thing, however, is enjoying your work yourself. Push the papers and books aside, walk away from the conversations that fill the day, and spare a moment just to look at what you've done, nod to yourself, and smile.

I did that.

Clouds are soft enough to sneak up on ponies basking in your sun without being noticed. Just tossing that out there.

Beautiful pic with Celestia, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash and Scootaloo together. :love:

And you're absolutely right, what really matters is that you please yourself and not worry so much about pleasing everyone in the world, I learned that too. ;) Like Rarity, I realized if you try to please everyone, you end up pleasing no one, especially yourself.

Dear Princess Celestia,
I learn that you really don't have to like everything your friends do, art, literature, interests or whatnot. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, so long as there's no intended rudeness, disrespect or hard feelings towards one another. For friends like each other for who they are, not for what they draw or write. While you may like some things your friends do, others just may not fit your taste. After all, what's a difference of opinion between friends?

I thought they looked more like they were closing their eyes, taking a deep breath of fresh air, and enjoying the beautiful day.
