Day 3 of Write31Days:
Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently – they’re not fond of rules. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world are the ones who do. – Steve Jobs
One of my favorite songs right now is Renegades by X Ambassadors. I’m sure you’ve heard it – it’s all over the radio now, soon to be played to death. But until then, I love to listen to it and get all jazzed up! The lyrics are fun and beat keeps me moving. I’m sure many people resonate with the lines:
All hail the underdogs
All hail the new kids
All hail the outlaws
I bet you already guessed I was quite the nerd in school. 😉 In my high school we had tables in the cafeteria for the nerds, jocks, stoners, cool kids and some “floaters” who could sit kind of wherever they wanted. But if you were a real geek you’d eat your lunch in the classroom. There you could get ahead on homework. Or play some Dungeons and Dragons or just sit quietly on your own, without having to worry about the judgment of others.
These are my people. The ones who see the world differently and refuse to conform. The ones who go to Renaissance fairs – fully dressed up! They proudly declare themselves Trekkies and go to Comic Con whenever possible. You can make fun of them all you like, but they know that any words you throw out are empty. Because they know how to live authentically, true to themselves.
I have to admit, I might have fallen prey to hiding parts of myself to appease others and their views. But I’m not playing that game anymore. I’m letting my freak flag fly high and proudly claim myself a misfit!
Your turn – have you been hiding a part of yourself? How can you live more authentically?
