Your quirks. Your interest in unusual things. The small things that bring you joy. The odd things you do because they feel right to you. The unique things you find funny — or fascinating.
These are the things about that make you truly unique and different from others — and they are among, if not the most beautiful things about you.
It can take bravery to be yourself and stand out from the crowd, but the alternative, to conform, is to become less of an individual. While there is an implied comfort and safety in conformity, comformity represents the ordinary. The status quo. And it is the enemy of creativity.
To change yourself to fit in with the crowd is to yield your personal power and influence to the crowd.
Every time you change something unique about yourself in order to be just like someone else, a piece of the best part of you dies.
Don’t think of it as being “weird” or “different”, think of it as being limited edition.
Be extraordinary. Not ordinary.
Don’t strive to make your presence noticed, make your absence felt.
Don’t let the things you own end up owning you.
