Sometimes we get it into our thinking that different automatically means wearing a pigeon on our heads, or having wild blue hair, but that isn't always the case. Different is getting up in the morning & looking into that mirror and loving the hell out of what you see. Different is not being the same size as the person next to you & being just fine with that because you both look awesome. I don't like defining myself, I just like to leave the door open to whatever I may like at any given moment. I like to be un-definable really.
Different doesn't always mean looking different, it's a way of being, a state of mind, that makes us stand out from the rest. If everyone was a jerk and you treat people with kindness - that makes you different, especially in this world today. If all the people are conforming to trends or what is apparently hot and you're sticking to what you love and feel good about - then you are being different.
I believe being different is giving yourself permission to be you - whatever the hell that may be! It doesn't matter, by being you - a healthy you, you open the doors to so many opportunities and best of all - love & happiness. I've talked to a lot of friends & gotten messages from people that have at times been afraid to be who they are & have been very unhappy, but once they took down those walls & decided to just love and be who they are at any moment, like a bird - they flew free.
One of the things I love about blogging is the vast array of different people I get to come in contact with, it's a joy. Without even realizing it, you are changing someone's world - hopefully for the better. You may be helping another feel loved or just dandy with being who they are. And I'll just say, you're all awesome, just as you are, never let anyone make you doubt that! Shine your light bright, so that others may feel brave enough to shine theirs!
Have a great Monday dolls
