Stand out

  When we stand out from the crowd, people notice. Everyone is always trying so hard to fit in, that when some don’t, they stick out. But that isn’t a bad thing, no matter how daunting or unnerving. When we stand out, we open up the world to something it’s never seen or heard before. And the world depends on that. When we see things differently, we stop seeing the world as it is and start seeing the world for what it can be, we stop saying ‘that’s the way it is’ and start saying ‘that’s the way it can be’. And these people who stand out are indispensable – they have something special to offer that no one else can. We all have that special something, but many of us are killing it by trying to constantly fit into a box. Boxes are confining. Live outside the box. Or better yet, believe the box doesn’t exist.

Thought of the Day: Belonging

Belonging quote

From a young age, we are ingrained with a sense of needing to belong. Some of us grow out of it, but many of us still battle with belonging. Our idea of belonging is wanting to fit in and not wanting to end up being labelled differently. But we all belong. There is a place for all of us. Where we are now is where we’re meant to be. But where we are now is not where we’ll always be. We can decide where we want to go. We can decide where we want to stay. And we’ll always belong. Don’t let anybody tell you differently.
