You Are Weird! So Wave Your Flag Proudly!

Weird Flag

Don’t know about you, but I am one of those people who doesn’t seem to truly “fit in” with any particular group or clique. My childhood was spent feeling awkward and out of place.  And to a large extent those same feelings continue today, but the difference is that now, I really just don’t care if I fit in or not.

I was taught that everyone was unique.  Similar, perhaps, but unique.  Cliques were nothing more than a gaggle of folks who want so much to be like their leader that they live false lives.  They live this facade until they even begin to believe their masks are real, which is the true tragedy because the world needs individuals working together in harmony to create that unique situation called “community.”

Imagine life with no masks, where we are real (as frightening as that may seem), where we are more concerned for others than for ourselves because we know others are doing the same.  Yeah, Utopian Ideology.  But my mind can wander through that dream can’t it?

So raise your Weird Banner and wave it proudly with me!  “To thine ownself be true and it must follow, as the night the day, that thou canst not then be false to any man” – Bill Shakespeare.  Methinks Ol’ Bill got it right!

Weirdly Unique

Each Day Is Unique

 

 

 

Odd.

Eccentric.

Different.

Strange.

Weird.

Each word perfectly describes us. There are no two of us that are exactly the same.  Our feelings, looks, temperament, perspective, insights, talents, gifts, everything about us is completely unique.  We may be similar in many ways, but we are individual in our uniqueness.

No two days are exactly the same.  No two sunrises are exactly the same.  No two situations are exactly the same.

So what’s my point?  We are weirdly unique, yet similar.  Our differences and similarities can make us fit together like pieces of a mosaic form a beautiful picture.  Or they can drive us into fragmented segments as…..well, just look at the news.

The choice is ours.  Use your unique weirdness to benefit someone else, or push them away.

I’m not lost, just weird!
