OUTSIDE THE LINES

Do not be afraid to color outside the lines. Take risks and do not be afraid to fail. Know that when the world knocks you down, the best revenge is to get up and continue forging ahead. Do not be afraid to be different or to stand up for what’s right. Never quiet your voice to make someone else feel comfortable. No one remembers the person that fits in. It’s the one who stands out that people will not be able to forget.

YOU ARE NOT EVERYONE’S CUP OF TEA

"The world is filled with people who, no matter what you do, no matter what you try, will simply not like you. But the world is also filled with those who will love you fiercely. The ones who you love you; they are your People.

Don't waste your finite time and heart trying to convince the people who aren't your people that you have value. They will miss it completely.  They won't buy what you are selling. Don't try to convince them to walk your path with you because you will only waste your time and your emotional good health.  You are not for them and they are not for you. You are not their cup of tea and they are not yours.

Politely wave them along and you move away as well. Seek to share your path with those who recognize and appreciate your gifts, who you are.

Be who you are.

You are not everyone's cup of tea and that is OK."
