especially those of us who pass daily down the pavement without even a whisper of those little wonders that make so odd...so perfectly unique?
do we suddenly awaken to realize that we bite our nails, that we always tap-tap the top of our soda cans, that we turn off every light in the house except the one above the bathroom mirror?
and those are just the little ones.
i think we all have habits that even we don't realize.
the quirks that make us unique, the ones that set us apart from everyone else in the world.
i'm the biggest advocate of quirk. maybe it's because i have so many of my own.
i'm all about embracing the individual. because we weren't made to fit. we were made to break.
we were created to stand out, to be set apart.
we were made to leap with the whales, to sing with the dolphins.
perhaps it is our calling to be the odd ones.
“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” ~Marilyn Monroe
please don't let the world crush your song.
broken dreams make beautiful mosaics, after all.
catch the sun. sing His song.
be a quirk, little one.
