Permission to be Different

I’ve never been one to follow a crowd or “do” what everyone else does. I know this may come as a shocker to some, but I’ve never seen an entire episode of the Simpsons nor was I a fan of The New Kids on the Block. 

Here is Your Permission to be Different

I’ve always been somewhat of a dreamer, goal setter, entrepreneur type. I would make signs and hang them on my bedroom door just in-case someone wanted to rent a “library book” from me. I made paper dolls out of old magazines and played for hours. I also played with dolls on my back deck for much longer than your average little girl. My favorite Sunday morning thing to do after church, was circle open houses and look in the Sunday news at all of the job openings. People, I could not make this stuff up.

I share this with you as a key to my inside world. A world filled with the building of stories and making things happen. So often as adults we are afraid to be “different“. We want what our neighbor has, the bigger house, the nicer car, the bigger boat, and “cooler” clothes. We are left feeling unsettled. We want different results but fear really being “different“. Going against the norm looks scary. It overwhelms us and we freeze! 

All while simultaneously, we are quick to encourage independence, self confidence, and uniqueness to our children. We want for our children that which we feel we can’t achieve. The unthinkable, the unimaginable, the unbelievable dreams; the kind that leave the nay-Sayers watching in awe and wonder. 

The truth is, I venture to say deep down most of us at some time have felt a bit “different”. I’m here to tell you “that’s OK”! It is OK to be unique in every way imaginable. Be you! Be great! To be different is to think different, and that ultimately will yield a “different” outcome than those around.

What does different look like to you?
