Expectations, peer pressure and social norms are dangerously powerful. In this day and age, most routes in life are conveniently laid out before us; it’s nice, but what are essentially social constructs tend to become what’s deemed to be real and deceitfully called “the right path”. The truth is, there are no right or wrong paths – we are free to make our choices; we just have to be ready to take responsibility for them. Once in awhile, we need to take the road not taken, if we feel it is where we will truly make a fruitful and fulfilling personal journey. Choosing not to conform is not about seeking attention, or being different for the sake of being so; rather, it is about being honest with who you are, your dreams and aspirations, and then having the courage to make those convictions a reality. Now that’s the stuff of greatness. DARE TO BE DIFFERENT.
