Day #256: Escape The ‘Norm’ & Follow Your Heart

You have choice to follow the norm, or you can uplift yourself and carry onward with your heart. What I have found is the longer you let society dictate the way you live, the way you work, the way you spend and the way you should be – the longer you will be miserable. Shake free of being bound by what seems to be the ‘norm’. You don’t need the latest and greatest car, you don’t need all the money in the world and you don’t need to be dressed to impress.

I am sick of hearing and being told that this is what and how I should be living – a life of superficial ideas and persona’s which prove nothing. If you’re living to impress the idea that has been created stating you must do X for Y, then you’re not really living at all but surviving. Your heart however tells a different story. 

Just be yourself. Let people see the real, imperfect, flawed, quirky, weird, beautiful, magical person that your are. – Mandy Hale

If you have a dream, a vision, a goal or an aspiration to be, see or do – unless it contradicts ethics, law or beliefs  – you should chase it and follow your heart in making this happen. Your lifestyle may change, or conflict with how others (society) suggest it should be. But if everyone was a sheep – would we have half the things in this world? Would we have discovered as much as we have? 

Just remember to stay true to who you are. Be yourself; everyone else is already taken. – Oscar Wilde
