Get Away From the Crowd
Think for yourself
Find your own voice. It’s hard to do that when TV, movies, radio, and online chat rooms are dictating what’s cool, what’s “in” and what you should think. Look at it this way: the crowd doesn’t live in your body, it doesn’t pay your bills, it doesn’t pay the consequences of your choices. You do. And quite frankly, they really don’t care all that much about what you are wearing, doing, saying or singing. They’re too busy worrying about themselves.
Every once in awhile, be willing to stand alone, on your own two feet.
It’s good to get out into nature without your phone, iPad, iPod and all the other distractions of modern technology. Get in your car or on the bus and go someplace completely different: to a botanical garden, the beach, the lake, a park, go rock climbing or take in a museum. Get out of your comfort zone, get away from all those voices and listen to your own.
So many people are afraid of standing away from the crowd. Try it. You might find out you’re pretty cool all by yourself.
