Defy The Normal

Why be a grey crayon when you can be a blue, red, green, yellow, purple, pink, etc? Why not be colorful instead of normal?

We all have our imperfections, flaws, glitches, and each of us are unfinished.

I’ve discovered so many new things with blogging. Each time someone likes one of my blogs or starts following me I immediately stop on over to their blog and it’s like Christmas morning.

I feel like I’m opening a precious gift and finding something so extraordinary. When I open up my gift my eyes light up and I want to say “Is this for me? All for me?”

Embrace all of the things that you were warned about in life. Deviate from the normal path you’re used to traveling and hurl yourself into the unknown.

Seize the opportunity to color outside of the lines. Dive into the abyss for once. Abandon all views of normalcy, please!

An open mind is an exquisite thing. Diversity is my addiction. Why always stick with the same chocolate you’ve always loved to eat when you can have an assortment of different flavors?

Accepting people that are the reversal of yourself is a liberating thing. Do not isolate yourself from the unique just because you are not familiar with it.

It really is an honor for someone to let you into their world and to get to know them. Do not judge them or ever criticize them for their lifestyle. We are all imperfect and no one is above the other. We’re all equal.

Open your heart to love the uniqueness of one another. No matter what your race is, whether you’re straight, homosexual, transgender, republican, a democrat, catholic, baptist, or whatever….we all have something in common which is LOVE.

Humanity is tenderness, kindness and goodwill. Let’s apply this in our everyday hustle shall we? We could all use some tenderness, kindness and goodwill couldn’t we?

    Normal is just a setting on the dishwasher. I love when people are authentically themselves and embrace their own unique qualities. Genuine is what I adore. Who wants normal?
    Great post.

    In this world of hustle and bustle, over population, and loss of identity… Being normal is actually unique and different, because everyone is trying to hard to stand out. If I could be a crayon I would be a white crayon used on a white page, if I were a marker I would be disappearing ink. I revel in anonymity, I much prefer not to be noticed in every day life.. Because that is who I am. You may pass me in the street 100 times and not see me, you may have spoken to me and not remember.. That is what I want out of life in the outside world.

      And that is just lovely to me. Although you prefer to be invisible your words are vivid and vibrant. I see you. 👍
