When was the last time you did something different? Wore that crazy outfit that makes you feel like a million bucks, but won’t fit in with the other people in line at the supermarket? Went to a restaurant and ate your meal in reverse, dessert first, because you don’t give a hoot about parsnip soup starters and you want to be certain you have room for that ice cream? Went to that concert alone, because your friends decided they’d rather sit in the house and watch action movies? Decided to start your own business selling your artwork, instead of getting a ‘safe’ job at the restaurant around the corner?
Steve Jobs said it better than I ever could:
‘Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.’
Break the mold kiddos. Hang out upside down. Rock everybody’s worlds. You’ll be the only one worth talking about
How would you encourage our daughters to be brave in their decisions? When was the last time you did something different, and reaped the rewards? Leave a comment and let me know; I’d love to hear your stories!
