First of all, I love people in general. There are interesting aspects about every individual. We are all unique in our own way. Some individuals are extra unique, or what some may call eccentric.
I am not eccentric myself, but I have always loved others that are!
We’re All Different
I find those that are eccentric to be captivating. They really hold my attention and to me, they are such an inspiration to live authentically.
Maybe it’s the way that they approach life without a care in the world, maybe it’s the fact that they don’t worry about what others do or say, they just live. Eccentric individuals aren’t typically afraid to be themselves or go against the crowd. They have their own way. There are those with eccentric looks and personalities and those with both!
Individuality makes this world go round. A life that is lived out of fear of what others think is a miserable feeling! It’s not always easy or even safe to live the life that we desire, but if we are able, it can be so freeing.
I think much of the time, our personal appearance is a statement to the outside world. While looks don’t matter in a sense, sometimes eccentric looks are a message and a statement that cannot always be verbalized. People will have general thoughts about others based on what they see.
Personality is often ingrained, but there are some parts of us that we can use as a form of expression. We can’t judge a book by its cover, but we can get an idea of how someone may want themselves to be portrayed.
This year, authenticity is my goal. Overall, I am doing better than I expected. I feel as though I may be drawn to eccentric individuals because they can usually live fully authentic lives. They are able to show and express themselves on many levels and not worry what others think of them, or if it goes against the norm. Some may be afraid to be themselves, but the fact that they took the plunge to be different is amazing to me!
I truly admire and love people that can so easily be themselves. There’s no thinking involved, they just live freely and without worry. We all have fears, but someone like myself lets it run my life and I am trying hard to change that. I overthink and worry too much about what others think. There is freedom beyond that type of thinking!
So Much Beauty
There is a lot of beauty in being yourself. Eccentric or not, we all are unique and have something special to give this world and others. Most people struggle to be fully authentic at some point in their lives, even those who aren’t afraid to express themselves. Human nature takes over and we often experience similar feelings and situations as we are all part of the human race.
The world needs you, all aspects of YOU. Cheers to living authentically!
