Somehow in all of my favorite words out there the simple word "Unique" has held my affection for quite some time now. I hold a lot value on the existence of people being unique. I don't find a single thing wrong with standing out from the crowd, in one perspective (the optimistic one) being called unique or a misfit is not to be frowned upon, but is to be desired. I don't know why so many people nowadays set so much store on "fitting in" when in my eyes I don't see why you would want to be average.
I quite readily embrace my "uniqueness" and it is actually one of the qualities that I am happy I possess. I simply don't morph my being to fit into society's mold. I let myself be free and take whatever shape I see fitting. I don't call it misfit, I call it being true to yourself. Which is of course what it actually is.
Lots of people think of me as a little granny in a young girl's body because I love knitting, crocheting, drinking tea, puzzling, using big words and so on. I have never yet been offended by that.
When some people would assume that I was born in the wrong time (because of my being unique in an old fashioned way) I know for certain that I have some purpose to fulfill, and I was made the way that I am to fulfill just that purpose. My whole point in this entire post is to embrace your uniqueness and let it flow free.
