Your quirks make you special.
Your struggles give you strength.
What seems to be a detriment in one season can be an amazing asset in the next.
What seems like the end of the line can become a launching pad.
Think for a moment about the culture makers and influencers in the area of your passion.
Almost everyone of them was an underdog, a weirdo, or both.
Each and every one.
Awkward kids. Odd balls. Misfits. Outcasts. Quacks. Underdogs. Weirdos.
Just like you and me.
There was no reason that we should know their names.
But we do.
Their pain became a platform.
Their quirks fueled their work.
Their struggles gave them strength.
Stop trying to be conventional.
Quit squeezing your square butt into round holes.
Don’t put your personality on the shelf while you try to be someone else.
Be grateful that you are you.
Because when it is all said and done, we really don’t really have another choice.
And maybe, just maybe your weird, oddball, underdog story will be the inspiration for another misfit to bravely live their own.”
