One of the keys to happiness is to embrace what makes you *you.* Even if it’s weird and no one else gets it. In fact, it’s especially important to embrace the things about yourself that no one else gets.
Build your life’s vision on those things. Make them your life’s work. Harnessing the aspects of yourself that are exclusively you is how you carve out your space in this world. It’s how you open up and share with everyone else.
It’s how you let yourself out and let other people in.
I know it’s scary. I know it involves falling and failing. I know it involves patience and grace. I know it involves brutal honesty with yourself and the world. I know it involves courage.
I know it involves not giving up, which is one of the hardest things in this world to do.
But don’t give up, even if you have to crawl in the dirt for a really long time.
