There will always be a certain expectation of those who do things differently. Different is often misunderstood, but don’t be afraid of that. That divergence is where glory resides. Graciously learn from others, but don’t become them. Unless you’ve built the box, don’t try to squeeze into it: it wasn’t made to fit you. Allow your wild spirit to boldly flourish. Don’t waste your magic by trying to be just like everyone else. ~Cyndie Spiegel
Sometimes it feels like originality and creativity aren’t recognized in the world today. That unless we follow trends or do what “the algorithm” supports or make choices that adhere to the status quo that we can’t gain traction or make our voices heard. And sometimes I want to throw in the towel and quit trying because of it.
But different is beautiful.
And we shouldn’t be afraid to stand out!
So let your light shine.
And know that the world needs you and every brilliantly different part about you.
