Let’s be weirdos together
Have you ever been called a weirdo? Have you ever felt that you are not like everyone else?
Perhaps you feel that being weird is a bad thing, and perhaps you are afraid to stand out and be yourself.
Then I want to give you the permission to do it; be yourself – dare to be weird. (because NOT being like someone else is the definition of being yourself, and perhaps that is weird. And if it means that you are doing YOUR thing, that you are living life on YOUR terms, that you are tapping into your innate infinite creative possibility that I like to call resourcefulness, that is a GOOD thing.)
I want to point towards something that is hiding in plain sight, about our personal potential. We all have the potential to be great, to do great things. And I think this happens when we become who we are, and we find ways to express this and share this with the world.
I believe that is a terrible tragedy for the world if you live your life and eventfully leave the same life without having expressed your fullest self – become who you are. You’d be denying a gift that only YOU can give.
you play small, and you hide your genius so that others won’t feel uncomfortable around you. You try to fit in, afraid of being rejected. I get it. I sometimes do the same thing.
And here’s what I want you to focus on instead; instead of trying to fit in with the general crowd (perhaps the wrong crowd), how about you focus on the right TRIBE or community for you.
Instead of fearing rejection from people who can’t handle who you truly are, seek to call out the people WAITING to welcome you into their arms – welcoming you home. Both groups of people exists out there. And perhaps one one group will feel right for you.
I want you to think about other geniuses of the world, and see how they too often were considered weirdos. They were people who dared to go their own way, knowing it was the right thing to do, for THEM. They might have experienced reticule and hardship along the way, and because they stayed true to themselves they go to fulfil their personal potential.
So perhaps you’re like me, only owning a few pieces of clothes and like wearing your favorite black t-shirt, so you have 3 of them. You’re in good company, plenty other people have a minimalist wardrobe so that they can focus on what’s most important to them.
Or perhaps you like Galileo with a passionate conviction or Mother Theresa, with a endless compassion and caring – or you might be a combo of both?!
Either way, I want you to understand that many of the past movers and shakers of the world that contributed to the growth and expansion of human understanding were often seen as weirdos. They might have been awkward dinner guests, or they might have been misunderstood messengers. AND they dared to be weird – dared to be themselves, be true to themselves.
So I am inviting you to be you. Become more of who you are, and dare to share it with the world. Let’s be weirdos together.
What are something about you that you THINK makes you weird or have other people call you a weirdo? Let me know in the comments.
