Ah, so that isn't EXACTLY how the saying goes, but I took professional license as a writer. Writer, ha, I use that term loosely. I'm more of a hack than anything, writing my personal thoughts and my day to day goings on. Thoughts and such that most people really wouldn't normally be interested in, or at least I don't think they would be. Alas, the thoughts are mine, and they are original to me no matter how mundane or weird or disturbing or whatever you may happen to think they may be at that particular time. I pretty much like who I am for the most part.
I'm pretty quirky. Some may call me weird. Some may not call me anything at all, and that is ok as well. If you call me anything at all that means I at least cross your mind at some point or another. In spite of it all we are who we are. People strive daily to change who they are or to pretend to be something they are not to please others. Can you really change what you are made of? If you are born a certain way can you make a conscious decision to change your ways mid life? Why do some people feel the constant need to conform and "belong?"
Just a random thought for today. I've never been a conformist. I've never really felt as if I "belonged," but I've never been bothered by that either. I try to instill in my children that there is no "normal," and that thinking outside the "box" is a much preferred method although not always the most popular. I embrace my eccentricities and neuroses, and I realize that not everyone can. I'm happy with who I am, and where I am in my life. I'm living it and loving it!
