Break the Mold
Over the years I have been fortunate enough to meet many people who did not fit the mold. You know, the person you knew in school that didn't quite fit in. Or the person that made you think “how are they ever going to find their place in the world?” Maybe that person was you. I was certainly one of those people.
After a great struggle, many errors and personal development, I found my way. Not without a few what ifs and not without working through my fair share of shame and disappointment. This of course makes for great manure to plant a tree that will someday blossom and bear wonderful fruit.
I think it is necessary for humans to struggle. We don't get anything or anywhere without struggling. So at this point in my life I am very grateful for being one of those people who didn't fit the mold. I see it now as a gift and I wouldn't have it any other way.
If you are one of those people who didn't quite fit in then consider your place here is to make it all a little more hospitable—and interesting.
