Lesson on How to Be Weird…from a Weird-o.

Sometimes in life, you just really need to be weird. And by weird, I mean cool. Because weird is the new cool. (Just in case you didn’t know.)

Take it from a weird-o. Your forehead might actually be a little too long. And your hair in the front may or may not be way too wispily-wild. Listen, don’t get down on yourself. Just go with it. Smile. Be free. Be crazy free!

Of course, it helps to encourage others to be weird with you. And by weird, I mean cool. And this guy is obviously cool.

Never mind that behind those shades he’s thinking to himself, “I hate every minute of this…why, oh why do I let her talk me into this?”

I confess–it can be a bit startling to others. (Oh, and that part is so much fun.)
Did you know there are some people who just aren’t used to being weird? There are actually people out there, a fair amount of them, that like to walk around and be nothing but “normal”…day after day…all the time.

They must get really bored.

Now, I don’t know if you are one of those people or not, but if you are, I just want to encourage you to try something.

Just decide for a moment that you won’t care what other people think about you.
Then do something a little abnormal. Be weird. Be crazy weird. Just do it. You might even find that it’s actually fun. You might even like living a little more.

And when you feel the urge to run away, just stand your ground and repeat this phrase:

Go ahead, world–laugh all you want.
But we here will ever be…the weird…the cool…the free.
