Ever get the feeling you just don’t belong? Like you just want a story to be written about someone like you – similar background, similar experiences, similar behavior? Life is hard on the unique. We’re told to act in certain ways and become like everyone else, so much so we feel slightly exiled when we stand out in any way. Truth is, the remarkably great people that go down in history are the ones who thought differently – and didn’t keep it to themselves. It’s time to be proud of our differences! Speak courageously and don’t allow others negativity to get in your way. As the wise Dr. Seuss once questioned: “Why fit in when you were born to stand out?” In your bravery, you just might discover a life you’ve always dreamed of…just like Thumbelina. ©
