Self-Admission: I’m on a bit of a kick right now. My kicks= getting really passionate about things that aren’t necessarily the most conventional or socially acceptable/encouraged…aka…my baking, workouts, writing, and traveling obsessions. All slightly impractical as means to life, yet still highly desirable. Initially, I see my daydreams as somewhat annoying and distracting to the more applicable and therefore important aspects of life. But then I realize, my daydreams and these kicks are the meat of what makes me
interesting, unique, different, human. Maybe Apple really did get it right in their toast…
“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. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward. Maybe they have to be crazy. How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels? We make tools for these kinds of people. While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Dance on, Ellen, Dance on.
