Unusual, ME Newsletter, Vol. 3, Issue 7
Well, Valentine’s Day stealthily passed me by.
Didn’t get my taxes done. Don’t have any new piercings.
Although, even after a year, my elbow still has the ice-capades bump.
I was concerned I’d lost the fire for non-conformity, until someone set me straight the other night.
“I always thought you were unusual,” he said. “But, now I think you’re just strange!”
The friendly revelation followed a discussion with his wife and a few others regarding some of the unexpected ways I’ve chosen to mark milestones, and a cross-examination of my motivation behind chosing a deeply irridescent shade of midnight-navy nail polish.
I don’t like to think I’m the only one who likes to stir things up, set things straight, and forge on.
I’m know there are others out there who go their own way naturally, and do their own thing creatively.
I just don’t think they are brave enough to tell anyone else about it.
Well, maybe that's too harsh. Maybe brave isn’t the right word.
Maybe, it would be more appropriate to say foolish enough.
Nah, it's not really foolish. It's way more purposeful.
I like to throw it out there. I like to bring on questions.
I really like responses.
In this issue: Tom Jones, Usual, Throwing It Out There, Impacting More People, Key Presentation Skills.
