Hey guys. I know it’s been forever since I’ve posted anything, but I’m still alive 😁. Someone messed around with my device recently and I ended up having to do a factory reset – I lost all my drafts so…I’m just writing on a whim.
Today, I just want to talk about society and how it just messes with people’s minds. It’s not always conspicuous like television ads showing you the ‘perfect’ way to dress or eat or live – nope…sometimes it is subtle enough to deceive us into thinking that this is what we truly want to be or have or do and that we are the authors of these thoughts.
We may realise that there is a path we are all expected to travel. We may not be told outright – you are going to be a dentist persay, but we get nudges in the ‘right’ direction.
Looks of disapproval may be directed at us, because we have done or said something deemed unacceptable as a societal norm. Deviant behaviour is now wearing flats and looking comfy and casual at a function where 6-inch heels, couture gowns of itchy fabric and full jacket suits are the dress code – and you should feel like an outsider because “someone did not get the memo”
Never feel bad about being you. Flaunt your You–niqueness
You do not have to disappear in the endless sea of bodies all going the same way and doing the same thing. You were not made to be everyone else, and you don’t need to fit society’s mold of perfection.
Do you ever feel like the star trying to fit in the space made for the squares? You should.
Take the reins of your life and steer wherever it is that you would like to go. As long as you are on the road to your destination it’s up to you to decide the pace, mode of transport, rest stops and even detours if you so desire.
I remember watching the cartoon/animation The Book of Life and when a character died he was told that he deviated from his written story – he was writing his own story.
You have the pen and the bottle of ink. Spill it if you wish, doodle, scribble, write, forget about the pen and live life as it comes. It’s all yours.
The Desiderata is a wonderful piece of inspiration. Find something that inspires you to be who you wish to be and continuously remind yourself of your goals.
It will not be easy, but you will love your destination so mich more because of it.
Always Your FantAwesome,
