Be Foolish

Until you’re ready to look foolish, you’ll never have the possibility of being great. – Cher

We spend all our lives trying to blend in, and fit in.  It’s safer that way, or so we seem to think.  Basically, we’re sheep.  We do, wear, think and say what everybody else does, wears, thinks and says.  I’m not criticizing, I do it too.  We want to be like everybody else.  I’m sure there is some sociological or anthropological rational behind it.  Here’s the thing though, we’re not all the same.  We’re all wonderful, amazing and unique individuals, and that’s something we should embrace and celebrate.  When you find your uniqueness and celebrate it, you can accomplish many amazing and wonderful things.   As I type this, I’m listening to the radio and Pink is playing.  Pink is unique, she is different and I can almost guarantee that she’ll be around for quite a while.  Back in my younger years (read the 80’s) there were a lot of really great (in my opinion) musicians, and then there were the ones who were talented but who were so busy trying to be like everybody else that they just faded off.  Look at people like Madonna and Cyndi Lauper.  Both of them were talented, yes, but they were different.  God were they different.  They weren’t afraid to be different, or even be foolish. And guess what, they’re still here, they’re still performing and they’re still amazing.  I’m not saying go out and wear a cone bra, or dye your hair 17 different colors, but figure out what makes you unique and celebrate it.  Take a chance, you truly were born to stand out!
