Ugh!!!!!!!! Just Be Different
Updated: Jun 29
The two most powerful weapons you possess; independent thought and lack of fear. That got me to thinking (dan-ger-ous!), if I have only one shot at this thing called life, then I am going to live it to the fullest. By nature we are tribal and to prove our loyalty, we try to fit in [groups] and model perceived traits of these tribes. We are influenced the greatest by our parents, teachers, and others whose opinions we value. As we evolved to be interdependent and there are grave, sometimes fatal consequences to getting kicked out of the collective. So you demonstrate fidelity; jussst enough to be in compliance, tittering on the brink of defying the rules of the tribe. Then one day, you decide that’s not working for you. You are starting to feel your individuality slipping away. Then the tennis match begins in your head; but “I want to be wanted, I need to be needed, I love to be loved”. I want to belong. After a game of tennis, comes a night of karaoke, We are family, I got all my sisters with me or Sometimes You Can’t Make It on Your Own.
I believe we all have a choice as to how we chose to embrace the “other self”. You know, that part of the whole of you that once you discover it, there can never be permanent defeat. From time to time, it will be met with temporary defeat, but not with permanent failure. There is great power to be discovered in your other self! You gotta love Napoleon Hill. Undergo a new birth of fearlessness, courage, and faith. Spend quality time discovering one-of-a-kind you. One of the most compelling reasons for journeying towards the authentic you is to discover…you. Never let anyone or anything impose on your soul. Search sincerely and you will find it.
In a world to be…Namaste Me!
