It’s not easy to be your own person.
It’s not easy to think outside of the box when everything can be so nice and cozy inside of it.
But you’re special! Most especially when you’re busy being you. Doing what YOU do uniquely well.
Often, It can be hard to go on when you realize you’re different from others.
But being different isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s a strong indication that you’ve got some new ideas and thoughts about how to do things. So keep pushing forward, humanity needs people just like you.

Rather crazy than normal, yes outside the box, outside the comfort zone. Hard but worth it. Soon another week over Penny. Yay have a great Friday 🎆💖🎆
a wonderful post, Penny !
Again most sincere thanks, my friend! xx
Thanks! Hope your weekend is being great for you!!! 🙂 xx
How was yours, Penny ?
I hope you’re doing terrific! 🙂
Doing pretty good, can’t complain! Well I could, but you know … lol! 🙂
yes, I definitely get that !!! 😀
I wasn’t made for Hollywood – So I gotta’ be me 😉
xx 🙂 🙂 xx
You do indeed my friend! Perfectly I might add! 🙂 xx
Excellent Penny and a good reminder – daring to be ourselves is one of our hardest tasks I think. x
True true words Ruth, my friend!
Great post Penny! My friends call my crazy all the time. Amber=crazy as far as they’re concerned. But, it’s true, when they need help, uplifting or a good laugh, they call this crazy up! Being crazy in my opinion, is always good. I’m happy we can be crazy together and that I’m not the only one 🙂
Yes I so agree Amber. So a good crazy for sure! Nope you’re not the only one! 🙂
I shall follow your lead, you are the pioneer and i am like the donkey, but with a less mournful face.
Silly you! You are wonderfully different, in all the exactly right ways SteJ! At least in my book!!!!!!
Love you too!
I don’t think about all that. It’s not important for me if i am different. I am not different from me and it is the principal lol 😉
Ha! Excellent! I agree Gys! 🙂
There’s a fine line between crazy and genius, and sometimes they overlap 🙂
Too true Alastair! 🙂
That’s where you get the Mad Professor from 😉
hehe I found a few smilies you can use, I like those ones, You have to type a word with a colon either side. : shock : and : roll : Is that something like Shock and Awe 😆
Very clever and fun too! 🙂
Yes they are 😀
Couldn’t agree more… I kinda like being me LOL
That’s a good thing to know about ourselves! 🙂
I love the words here, so inspirational 🙂
There is a magic about you… when I switch on mylaptop in the morning, I see something I need most that day. Amazing! Thank you for telling me what I want to hear this morning too…. and yes, Gandhi is the perfect example. … have a great day and god bless you!
Thank you mj. I hope today was a good one for you, and never be afraid to be who you are inside. That’s the best person of all to be! 🙂
Great video. Loved seeing all those inspirational people. I must be crazy because I don’t look at any of them as being that, lol. 🙂
Me neither! Thanks, 🙂
Just saw the post, “I wasn’t made for Hollywood…” Love that one. It reminded me of an Oscar Wilde quote: “Be yourself. Everyone is taken.” Paulette
AnElephantCant always be different
Sometimes he is probably too lazy
But if there is one girl
Who can change the world
According to this it seems Penny is crazy
Good crazy, sweetheart, go make it better.
Yup! That sums it up doesn’t it! 🙂
