Wow – what an inspirational way to kick off our first Monday of March! This quote by Maya Angelou is a great reminder that, by trying to be normal, we rob the world of the true gifts we have! And – when we really get into it – EVERYONE has their OWN personal and subjective definition of normal. Which means – “normal” isn’t really normal at all – because everyone has their own, individual definition for it!
Besides, when we are caught up trying to be “normal” – and focusing our energy on how other people might judge us – we miss out on following certain intuitions and taking action on opportunities that may lead us to fulfillment...all because we’re worried about fitting in.
What it really comes down to is: Be your authentic you! And – honestly – it takes time to get to know who you really are…especially when we’re stuck on achieving “normalcy” – and thus losing out on defining the differences we have to offer this life and this world!
So…it looks like we need to start getting to know ourselves…like…yesterday...but, we can ALWAYS start NOW! Ahhh…the gift of humanity…WE get to DECIDE! We can be like water and take the shape of whatever it is that we are inside of, but if we don’t LOVE the cup we are in (or are just trying to emulate the cup next to us) – then we are not doing what we’re here for! What we are really here for is to fill our water (and juice!) in a cup we are proud of and feel fulfilled by! Then and only then do WE get to decide the shape we are going to take…
Because…Why try so hard to fit in, when you were born to STAND OUT?!
