Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.
– Marilyn Monroe
Don’t be like the rest of them darling…
Being different means you are Unique. And let’s face it. You are. It simply means you’re brave enough to be yourself. You were born an original,
so let’s not act like a copy shall we? You can’t let other people tell you
who you are. You get to decide that for yourself.
Being different isn’t a bad thing. Being different doesn’t mean you’re weird. If so, case in point Weird is Wonderful. YOU are Wonderful. #BAM
It’s funny how this world grabs a hold of you at a very young age and tries to manipulate you. Actually it’s not funny, rather quite sad, heartbreaking. One of the hardest things as a parent is watching your child try to pilot through their life. As a co-pilot, I admit, it’s much easier grabbing the wheel. But don’t. I implore you to allow them to be their self. Their happy, beautiful, quirky little self. I implore you to do the same. Kapeesh? Whomever that may be.
We are all so beautifully different. How has “different” become associated with “weird”? Well, let’s see what Mr. Webster has to say…
Weird- unusual or strikingly odd.
Hmmmm… Ok. I’ll take it. I am strikingly odd. I agree. Love it.
Do you? Why try to fit in with everyone else, when you were born to stand out. I don’t want to be like everyone else. I tried that. Guess what? I was miserable.
The Dove Campaign hits the nail right on the head. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Don’t worry my dear, definitions and videos are my favorite, smiling too. Wink. Sidebar- name that movie.
I watched it three times. I’d love to conduct this very experiment and watch. Observe. Wonder what would happen if the two doors were
labeled Smart-Average or Normal-Weird. I wonder what doors my
own children would walk through, choose? Chills.
My favorite quote from the video, “Beautiful is a great word. Why not see what’s on the other side of that?” I agree. It is a beautiful word.
When we as women suffer from low self-esteem then shocker, our children do as well. I’ll say it again, Amazing Women raise Amazing Children. I loved how the one mom grabbed her daughter and made
her go through the Beautiful door. #LikeABoss #BAMIndeed
