If you know me at all, follow me on IG or check into my daily stories... You're very aware that I'm a weirdo. I can say that now because I finally decided a few years ago to embrace it and it absolutely changed my life. I can't take all the credit, my sweet husband is the one who truly brought out my personality because he's my person and has made me the woman I've always wanted to be. Which I guess is awkward, nerdy and full of amazing dance moves (I'm debating making a Youtube video out of them, stay tuned!). Since I get comments all the time on Instagram about how I'm constantly smiling, I wanted to give you insight on the Importance of Embracing your Weirdness... Because that's what keeps me smiling.
I admit that my level of weirdness is above the national average, but I'm comfortable with that - Rebel Circus
Being weird really isn't as difficult as people think. It's more than just embracing the weirdness itself, it's about embracing YOU. Everyone has it in them, I think some people just mask it so much they think it's not there. Being weird is more than just sticking your tongue out to make a funny face or telling jokes to make people laugh. It's about letting your true self out into the world and showing people everything there is about you that you love. It's about putting your guard down and laughing off the small stuff.
When I stopped caring what people thought of me I started realizing that the people who did love me, loved me for every awkward, funny laugh, lame dance move and 'mistake' I make. It opened a world of friends, and truly opened my eyes to the future, career and life I've always wanted. I am by no means perfect or saying I have it all figured out, but if embracing weirdness is all it takes, I'm all in.
The days I struggle with letting my true self out are usually the most stressful ones. I focus on things I think matter and forget about the light God gave me to shine into the world. Yes, I definitely think my weirdness is a thing God intended for me to show and it's another reason I think I've started actually liking it more.
By embracing your quirky attributes you open up and make people gravitate to you more. Maybe not all people, but the right people.
Without knowing who you truly are, what you truly want in life and the morals behind your heart it's hard to really show peopler all the good you have to offer. I can't say people always think I'm the funniest person ever (besides Kirby and my two sisters), but that's okay. I also can't say every moment in life is a moment to show your weirdness because lets be honest, that would be a little much. The main importance of embracing your weirdness is to free yourself from overthinking each and every thing you say or do. It helps keep a smile on my face, it makes my husband laugh and it's good for my heart. If I haven't talked you into it just yet... Give it a shot by dancing like a loser in your home ALL by yourself. It truly does wonders.
