Just this week, a Latin teacher of mine dropped by with some awesome fabric, buttons, and sparkly embellishments. I was speechless at the amount of pearls and sequins I kept pulling from the sack- it felt like a never-ending supply! Anyhow, yesterday I was sorting the buttons and took this picture. I printed it off and had typed in the bottom right corner 'different'. That's how I feel sometimes, but I love it because I'm okay with myself. I don't need to be like everybody else because different is a good thing! In fact, different is what changes the world. So I'm just going to keep being my different self and try to change the world a little bit each day. So if you're like me, I encourage you to keep being different despite what people think. The way I see it, it's usually only the truly different people who inspire me to change or to keep being who I am. Be who you're called to be and you never know how many people you will inspire.
Here is a list I made a few months ago about being different when I was struggling with it. (I'm not really that discouraged anymore, don't worry!)
Is hard to be.
doesn't care what they think.
changes the world.
