In the day and age where everyone has the same phones, same hairstyles, same shoes...(I can go on and on). It is extraordinarily hard to stand out in the midst of the crowd. It is especially tough to try something new when everyone is a "professional" critic. In that regard, my thought process is that either way, you will be judged so let them judge you out of jealousy. I honestly cannot count how many times people say they wanted to do something when they were younger. Take me for instance, I have been wanting to stick to my blogging path for so long but "life" and "excuses" always got in the way. I think back now and say to myself, I would be well established if I just didn't quit when I started in undergrad. Just like me and so many other people, we never took that step to set ourselves apart from the crowd. We make excuses that other things are a priority when in actuality we are afraid to dive in. We are afraid to be BOLD. To stand out and do extraordinary things, you have to be BOLD and completely forget about the norm. We have to get away from mediocrity.
Funny thing, when I was taking this particular picture, people were passing by and staring at me. I don't think there was one person who didn't look at me like I was crazy or maybe in admiration. Either way, who cares, it doesn't matter because look at the end product. Okay, let me connect it back to the point. It is not about the obstacles you will face, it is about the end result, SO BE BOLD AND STAND OUT, who cares what they think.
