We are all beautiful. So whether we think we stand out for being too extraordinary or blend in for being too ordinary, we need to let it go and let our beauty shine. Let go of the expectations, of the labels, of the restrictions, and let’s just be ourselves. We all have so much to offer just the way we are. Don’t hide who you are away. Be a fruit loop in a world of cheerios. Not that there’s anything wrong with being a cheerio. As long as you do you.
As much as there is a pressure to conform, there is also, on the opposite side of the spectrum, an overwhelming need to be original, to be extraordinary, to be unforgettable. Of course, we can be. But sometimes when we don’t live up to our high expectations, we view ourselves as failures, as ordinary, and as not being good enough. But that is far from the truth. Whether we are testing the limits of possibility or reaching for a dream held by so many others, whether we are being ‘extraordinary’ or ‘ordinary’, it doesn’t matter, as long as we are being ourselves. It can be challenging, but as long as we are sticking to our own principles and following our own passions, our life will be as abundant as anybody else’s, however much more extraordinary their’s seems. Be you.
