This morning I want to focus on something I would normally never suggest focusing on; insecurities, things that weigh you down and hold you back, and things that you are not proud of. Whether it be something having to due with your appearance [A birthmark, big ears, too short/tall, fat/skinny, a lazy eye, etc.], or something from your past that you tend to shy away from mentioning too often.
Embrace it. Please, embrace it. Our world today tends to engrave the same goals in every. single. person. on this earth. We are all striving to be the same, striving to blend it. Beauty and greatness is not found trying to blend in with everything around you, it is found by having a difference and showing the world that you appreciate it. The nature of humans is to appreciate differences, NOT sameness. Children, for example, before being contaminated by society's unhealthy and unnatural strive for a common perfection, would always choose to have a blue cupcake rather than a white one if all their peers had white cupcakes. On top of this, they would run to the other children and use this special blue cupcake as means of claiming superiority, assuming that the rest of the children will be "jealous". Why doesn't this type of behavior carry on as we get older, then? I say, its up to us, start appreciating your blue cupcakes again and remind everybody else that they were once jealous of that cupcake. Embrace your "insecurities", as all that they really are are "differences". Differences are beautiful and positive, so lift their heavy weight they've been putting on your shoulders, stop depriving yourself of their light, and show them off.
