D is for Different

Be different.

Stand out from the pack. March to your own drummer.

Have the courage to be you.

stand out from the crowdThere is tremendous pressure to be one of them.  Looking the same, thinking the same, saying the same.  Being the same.

But, be you.

Being you shouldn't be hurtful.  Not to you, not to them.  But, being you should be unique and wonderful.  It should be a gift.. to yourself, to those around, to those who don't even know you.

Being you can be lonely.  When everyone else is the same, and you're the only one who isn't, it can feel lonely to be the only one being like you, thinking like you, feeling like you.

Be different, anyway.


  1. This is a great post. I really like that you used it for D. And I love the umbrella picture. Awesome post and happy A-Z challenge.

  2. I love this post. Thanks for being so authentic. I agree with you 100%. Sometimes, I feel like the entire world is crazy but then, I start wondering if it's me. Oh well. At least I'm being my own person:)

    1. lol Maybe we're all crazy and should embrace that.

  3. Super post. It's especially hard for some people to risk being different, but it's only by embracing one's uniqueness that a person can really bloom. Happy A-Zing.

  4. That's great advice! I tell my kids this all the time.

  5. I'm gonna remember that.
