Today has been one of those days, where I was debating on whether or not I was going to be posting anything on either this page or even social media. It’s just been one of those days where the pain levels were starting to max out (and we’re talking before noon), so it’s a rest day and probably a short(ish) post tonight.
Today’s motivational saying is something that I try to take to heart–that it is okay not to fit in with the rest of the world. This is something that resonates with me, especially spiritually. When it comes to spirituality–I don’t fall into the norm (in other words I don’t follow one of the major religions), I bounce between paganism and atheism. This bouncing usually depends on who I’m talking to in terms of spirituality, and whether or not it is a friendly discussion or something that has descended into an argument. If it has descended towards an argument, I pick the one that usually either totally gets them going or shuts them up. I think I’m more of a blend of both paganism and atheism and probably leans more towards Wicca than anything (nature more than believing in any “god”).
I also am different from both majority of my family and the scientist world–I don’t drink all that often, and I don’t go out really at all either. With being more introverted in nature, I’d rather spend a quiet night in than going out with a lot of people. When I do go out, it’s usually with close friends and within some type of routine (certain restaurants or days), that works for everyone.
I also enjoy doing crafts, reading romance, sci-fi, fantasy, mystery novels. I enjoy bird watching, being out in nature. I also celebrate the fact that I don’t drive (anxiety issues and all that).
How are you different from others? Do you celebrate it, or do you hide it?
