In our youth, elders encourage us not to follow the crowd, and to be ourselves. Somewhere in our adolescent years, we start to find our way, and make it a point to stand out from the rest, claiming our individuality. Yet, by the time we're adults, we've forgotten one important truth: everything isn't for everybody.
|Dancing the Possibilities|
Consider the idea that everything isn't for everyone.
It's like when you see an XL trying to fit in a M. One size does NOT fit all! Same concept should be applied to life. Not everyone is meant to get married. Not everyone is meant to bear children. Not everyone is meant to be a parent. Not everyone is meant to be rich. And guess what, all of that is OK. The grass is not always greener on the other side, and looks can most certainly be deceiving. I am not saying that these shouldn't be part of everyone's goals. I'm merely suggesting that we dig a little deeper, to figure out if these things are what we really want for ourselves, versus what society wants for us. I believe that once we realize and accept the fact that everything isn't for everyone, we'll also allow ourselves to open up to other possibilities and opportunities that were meant for us.
So you can't seem to find Mr. Tall Dark & Handsome. Consider the idea, that maybe he's not the one for you, and perhaps you should give Mr. Light, Not-So-Tall w/ Swag a shot!
Ms.Video Vixen is just not that into you? Maybe you should consider that she may not be the type you need.
Or consider that maybe you're not meant to be with anyone right now. Just because your friends have significant others, doesn't mean you should have one too. I'm not saying close yourself off to the possibilities. I'm saying, consider the the fact that there's a whole world out there you haven't explored. A place where you may find Mr. or Mrs. Right when you least expect it! Or maybe you have a friend who always seems to be single. Consider the idea that maybe they want to be single!
Perhaps you are married, and for whatever reason, all attempts to conceive have not worked out. Consider that perhaps you were not meant to conceive children. However, this doesn't mean you cannot be parents. There are millions of orphans all around the world. Everyone knows that blood lines don't necessarily dictate who your real family is! Or maybe you know someone who doesn't want children. There's nothing wrong with that considering the idea that, everything isn't for everybody, including parenthood.
|Everyone is a Genius|
I don't have the answer to this question or any of the questions I've posed. They are simply a means to get you to challenge yourself to accept that everything isn't for everyone and open your mind to all of the possibilities and opportunities that await you!
Make 2012 the best year yet ~ Be true to yourself!
