Ripples #666.5: Quirky You!
For our tribe of 30,188 busy people who share encouragement and gratitude.
Embrace your uniqueness.
Time is much too short
to be living someone else’s life.
You know those things about yourself
that you’re self conscious of?
Those quirks that you’re trying to hide?
Those are not your weaknesses,
those are your strengths.
-Terry Border, submitted by Samantha in New Hampshire
You’re weird. Yeah, you kinda are.
But here’s the deal: your quirks don’t show you are flawed, they prove you are fabulous. So stop trying to hide in the shadows; the world really needs you to shine. It might feel a little uncomfortable at first, but you’ll soon notice that it will help you bring your full and best self to every day. And bonus: you’ll be inviting those around you to do the same. When that happens, everyone wins!
p.s. Hello to my new friends from St. Norbert College who embraced my quirks last weekend when we explored the dangerous topic of diversity. #uRock!
