Sometimes I feel like the quirky one; the person whose head is tilted to the side and whose glasses are a different hue. This can be a highly enjoyable, amusing perspective, but also an occasionally lonely one. Am I off my rocker? Am I the only one who found that ironic or funny?
I keep this quote nearby as a spirit lifter:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure…
We ask ourselves
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
Your playing small
Does not serve the world
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking
So that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
– Marianne Williamson
Or, to use more generational slang, “Let your freak flag fly:”
‘It is OK to let your freak flags fly and embrace the quirkmeister that’s inside of all of us. And I’m not even just talking artists, I’m talking every single person in this nation has the right to be themselves’— k.d. lang
