So today I decided to get out of the house for a bit and go and do some work down at a local coffee shop. I sat down with my coffee, got out my computer and to my surprise I saw a girl wearing fairy wings, bright pink leggings and talking about how she wanted to be a mermaid. My initial thought was “what a weirdo” but then I saw how happy this girl was.
She was very passionate about everything she was talking about and her personality shone through. I eavesdropped for a couple minutes before putting in my headphones and getting to work. I could see out of the corner of my eye this girl continue to talk, about who knows what, with a big smile on her face and I couldn’t help but be put into a good mood just from seeing how happy she was.
So it got me thinking, too often we judge people if we see them doing something that is out of the norm, dressing or talking a bit differently, or not conforming to what society thinks is normal. This girl made my day better just by being herself, being passionate in what she believes in and by having a smile on her face.
Message of the day – Be who you are and don’t let anyone change it!
