2/8/2020 Letter O – Be Original

Being original is not as easy as one would like. We seem to always be presented with ideas of how we should look, how we should behave, how we should think, and what we should have so as to be happy. It is difficult to look at faces that are better faces and to be content with the one that looks back at us. It sometimes makes us uncomfortable when stares greet the behavior that is not what the group expected. When the thoughts we express are rejected we may too soon discard them. The idea that what currently makes us happy, somehow isn’t enough can creep into our psyche and play havoc with our values. It’s tough to say; I like my face, and I am going to proudly wear it. I feel the way I feel right now and I am going to let myself react to it. My thoughts are a cumulation of where I have been, who I have known, how I have grown, my present and my future, I’ll keep thinking about them but I won’t let them be dismissed. I am happy with my present circumstance and I don’t need more. It isn’t easy, but it is the only way to be original and that is such a good thing to be.
