Don't be like the rest of them darling....


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

  3. I absolutely agree! We're born unique and in order to stay that way we need to have the courage to go our own way. Reading this I came to think of the movie The Holiday when Arthur tells Iris; "Iris, in the movies we have leading ladies and we have the best friend. You, I can tell, are a leading lady, but for some reason you are behaving like the best friend." Let's all be leading ladies in our own lives! I wish you a darling day, sweets!

  8. I'm with you on this Doll, it's funny, this post actually helps me realise that I'm different and also makes me appreciate that fact, it's good to be different and to not be like everybody else and I need to stop feeling shame for not being like everybody else and not fitting in, maybe I've been going the right way about things my entire life, this post might have changed my perspective for a while, maybe even in the long term, thank you.

  12. I agree with you, leave mediocrity behind and move forward to be yourself, according to your ideas and principles, that's beautiful! This past weekend, my girls and I dressed Rockabilly style for dinner and then went for a walk outside ... when we walked in front of a group of teenagers, one of them made jokes of our clothes ... so pathetic! My husband turned his head to the teenager and said she probably was dressed in Chinese shops, so do not laugh if someone has personality. Sometimes it's hard to be different ... but that makes it beautiful!

  13. What a beautiful way to start my day and my week darling. :) You are right....we all need to free ourselves from what is expected of us and just be ourselves. You are such an inspiration to me doll. You always know just how to make others feel loved and comfortable in their own skin. Love you Kizzy! Xo

  35. I feel different in many ways, all stemming from being a very sensitive soul. I'm lucky to have my family supporting and encouraging my peculiarities. And I'm lucky to be able to find inspiration in the words of great women, who catched my attention in the first place for their own peculiarities. Big hugs

  36. Kizzy I couldn't agree more. I think it's really hard for young girls to feel o.k with being themselves. Partly because they're still working out who that is, and also for fear of not being accepted by their peers. In the long run though, you only feel right at home doing and being what's right for you, and who you are. Good on you for writing such an important blog post. You're an absolute treasure :D sparkle2day.com

  46. My Mom always tells me and Roro this! In school, there are kids who try to make you feel like you have to be a certain way or have certain things to be ok. But I think that's silly. My Mom always tells us that we're unique and we should let our light shine! I really like what the lady is wearing in the first picture :D
