This world needs some difference makers – some hope creators and people who stand out. It seems that all too often today people are obsessed with blending in, with all being the same, with looking like clones. It’s growing a bit ridiculous, in my opinion. Take the latest fad of using some type of at home hair removal system, for example – everyone is obsessed with ridding their bodies with every last hair – except for the ones on their heads.
As a result, sleek is in, and hair is not. People are made fun of when they don’t have access to the latest and greatest products that make them look just like everyone else. And people are left out, sad, depressed because they just can’t keep up.
I always find it amazing how quickly humans work to be just like each other. We are so quick to adapt to the latest fad, or what is popular, even if that means we start to look more the same and less unique and different.
Some people will go to enormous lengths in order to match, or “fit in,” with others around them. They are willing to sacrifice money, time, and even their body in order to match the rest of society. With that comes the great sacrifice of their individuality.
I just wanted to encourage you today to dare to be different. Maybe by you standing up and standing out, you will give the courage to someone else to do the same thing. Maybe you will brighten up someone’s day by letting them know they are not alone or the oddball out. We need people to be the best self they can be, not the best whatever everyone else is doing.
Put down your hair removal system of silk flash and go, or whatever it may be.
Don’t fight hate with hate, but instead let love bloom and watch how a little change can spark great things. Stand out from the crowd and bring hope to those who aren’t brave enough to stand by themselves. You could be the catalyst for change, and heaven knows the world needs some change.
Stand up for what’s right and true and fair. Be a little quirky. Spread some smiles and joy. Be the beginning of hope in your own little circle, and watch it spread. Diversity should be celebrated – and it can originate with you.
Let the world celebrate beautiful you. If it never gets the chance to see how you are unique, it will just be celebrating another clone. It’s time to stand out!
