Happy Monday my weird and out of place! Welcome to the beginning of the rest of your life and the day you finally realize that being YOU is the best and only way to truly be happy! Today's Daily Word is to being abnormal! In today's society we put such an emphasis on being normal that we don't realize how ridiculous that notion really is. If you look up the word Normal in the dictionary you will see its meaning as conforming to the standard or the common type; usual; not abnormal; regular; natural, serving to establish a standard. If you look up abnormal you will see that it is a deviation from what is normal or usual. I don't know about you but there is no way I will be satisfied with life by conforming to the standard or the common type.... And I know for sure our Higher power did not put us here to just be regular! In order to make a true difference in the world and within yourself you must be comfortable being YOU! As Author Dan Pearce, once wrote "Don't you get it? There is no other you. Out of the six and a half billion people on earth, not a single one of them has had the same experiences in life that you have had. None of them share the exact same passions and struggles. None of them have lived your life. None of them. You are the product of you, and nothing else. Every decision you have ever made over your entire life has led you exactly to where you are right at this moment. Simplified... You are you because of you." Effective immediately I need you to stop being NORMAL and BE who YOU are meant to be... YOU! The world may not like you for it but always remember... Those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind!
"If you are always trying to be normal you will never know how amazing you can be."
"The things that make YOU different are the things that make YOU, YOU."
"Everybody Is weird! We should all celebrate our individuality and not be embarrassed or ashamed of it."
"You have two choices in life...Choice one is to be the same and be like everyone else...Choice two is to be yourself and be a difference-maker."
"The world is not ready for some people when they show up, but that shouldn't stop anyone."
"The only reward for conformity is that everyone likes you except yourself."
-Rita Mae Brown
"Its hard to be a diamond in a rhinestone world, but that is no excuse to lower your value"
"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
