Try being different…

Fitting in is difficult. I walk in a world full of look a-likes trying to be cool, trying to be popular. Standing out is the most difficult thing. What clothes you wear, or how cool your accent is doesn’t define who you are in life. It will not make you one to be remembered. Why try to be like someone else, someone who will fade away as days go by? Someone who is just a grain in a world full of sand…

It was people Bob Marley, Lady Diana, Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi who stood out through decades.

Bob Marley’s way of life, his music, it all wasn’t conventional yet had a message. He knew what he wanted the world to know and he let them know it in his own extraordinary way.

Lady Diana exemplified beauty in all aspects. Not just physically pretty, she was gorgeous in her manners and behaviour. Everyone fell in love with her simplicity and kindness. Kindness in a world full of greedy rich people, Unique

Today, these people are remembered as if they are still amongst the living.

Why do we live in a world where everyone strives to be popular, but only popular in the moment? Why do we feel the need to be accepted? Is acceptance what life is about? Were we sent on earth to receive approval from others who are looking to do the same?

You don’t live a million lives, so why not make the most of what you have? It is not a rock that looks like one of the millions around that stands out but the rare diamond that holds most value.

Going through life trying to live in the moment only leads to a future full of regret.

Ambitions, determination, the need to make something of yourself are qualities that every person must strive to achieve but in today’s world I see no one like that. No one knows what they want in life except to be rich and good looking, but how far can that take you?

Why don’t people want to be different anymore? Is it that scary, to think that you might actually be one of the few people who are remembered?

I personally think the greatest thing in the world is when you’re remembered for something you did. Whether it’s a simple act of kindness or just being there for someone, but who does that anymore?

Compassion is dying along with our planet.

What’s the world come to? Seriously.
