Different

Posted: February 4, 2012 in Questions & answers

Everyone at some point has felt different. It’s only natural, after all.

The media keeps bombarding us half the time with the idea that we have to follow a stereotype, a “role” in the world and the other part of the time that we have to be extraordinary. It gets confusing because, let’s face it, most of us will never be neither president of a country, super models or saints. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. Life isn’t about great speeches, impossible love affairs or acts of inhuman heroism. Of course there are many people who   extraordinary things, in fact, most people do or live extraordinary things at some point in their life but usually it isn’t in slow motion and it definitely doesn’t have a soundtrack (though I must admit the idea is quite amusing).

The thing is, contrary to what media tells us, it’s not about winning, it’s about being happy. A lot of people are not happy because they think that their life, their experiences, everything is just not good enough. But life is not a film or a book… it’s so much better.

So, this is a message for anyone out there who feels different to the rest of the world! If you’re happy being an executive, work like mad to become one. If you’re happy being a waitress, what’s the point in insisting upon getting three degrees and two masters if you just like working in a snug cafe?

What’s wrong about being different?

Winning is about getting the result you want, is being how and makes you happy and… you know what ? If you do something that makes you happy you’ll probably turn out to be a lot better at it in the long run than if you were doing something else.

So smile, enjoy the ride and over all don’t worry about being different because that’s what makes you beautifully unique in this mad as a hatter world.
