Why is it so bad to stand out and be different?

I talked to this young girl the other day who was crying because no one at school liked her and wanted to be her friend. I thought back to when I was a kid and all I wanted to do was read. I had so many books. Whenever my dad would go out of town, he would bring everyone a gift. They always wanted candy or trinkets, I just wanted a book. So, I was labeled a nerd and I never quite fit in. My older sister, on the other hand, fit in perfectly. She was so bold, fun and everyone wanted to be her friend. I wanted to be just like her when I was younger.

But, being different is good! Ask anyone who was ever different growing up, it’s not all that bad. It may not feel like it when you’re that young, but believe me, you are the way you were meant to be. I gave the little girl a big hug and told her how different I was when I was a kid. Then I asked her, “do you think i’m weird now?” She still said yes, lol, but she said that she wanted to be weird like me. I told her that no matter what anybody says about her, she was perfect just the way she was and that she would grow up to be even more perfect. We have to remember that uniqueness is a beautiful thing. If we were all the same, if we all looked, talked and acted the same, the world would be a very boring place. Never Blend In. Always Stand Out.

Now, the only way that blending in is good is when you have on Camo…lol! My gorgeous friend Jenai is obsessed with Camo and got me obsessed as well. I found a gorgeous pair of Camo pants and paired it with a half jacket, a coat and my favorite pair of heeled sandals. Let me know what you think of the look and how you like to wear camouflage clothing.
