Many strive to be normal, to be accepted, not to stick out, or to create ripples.
But here is the thing, YOU are not normal. you ARE unique, and that is what makes you so very SPECIAL.
Life is all about creating ripples, life is not about being accepted, but about accepting yourself.
Accepting all of you - flaws, successes, losses, background, situation, mind - you get the drift - all of it, accept it, then LOVE IT!
You are a creation of pure bliss, let it drive your life.
