Push the Limits, but… (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 91)

Push the Limits

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

Nobody’s Thinking About You Anyway

“Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.”
— Oscar Wilde

We often spend our lives trying to please people. It’s the most boring job in the world. We try so hard to be perfect and to make everybody like us. Worry about what people think or how they will view us overwhelms us at times when it really shouldn’t matter. Our perception of what people might think, or could think, or probably will think gets into our heads and confines us into little cubby holes made for kids’ clothes.  Read more…
