Misfits

I think Dr. Seuss said it best. But does it actually hurt to recognize and accept that you are indeed a misfit? 

Misfit: one who doesn't quite fit into any particular social group (not even the outcasts) but may or may not have qualities of each one...

We all want to feel like we belong, don't we? Feel like we fit in?...

Even though I think I'm a bit of a chameleon (as in, I can fit into really any environment or social circle), the truth is, I'm a misfit. I can change my color to match my surroundings. But when I'm alone, in the absence of color, WHAT COLOR AM I!? I don't even know!
Do you hide such a revelation or celebrate it? Well if you're me or taking advice from me, you probably CELEBRATE IT (and then write a blog post about it).

Who CARES if you don't fit in!? Who cares if I don't fit in!? Hey Chris, who cares if we don't fit in!? I was tagged in the best picture by my friend Tori... She said, "you. perfectly." Damn it if she's not right, and I'm proud of it!

Do you really WANT to be stuck in the crowd? What kind of adventure is that!? Albert Einstein was a genius ya know...

I like being different. I like marching to the beat of my own drum. I like making up the path as I go. And I like other people who do the same! You never hear, "wow, that girl is so awesome by being exactly like everyone else." NO! It's the misfits that change the world. Right, Apple?

I don't want to waste another moment considering how I can fit in. Or where I fit in. I'm going to celebrate being "weird", "crazy", "different". I don't care if you make fun of me or don't want to hang out with me. I don't care if I don't fit in with your group. I don't want to be like you! I want to celebrate being me!

I don't know where I'm going with this... I guess I just want you to feel okay with being you too. Even when you feel like you don't belong... Don't change. Be who you are. BE YOU.
