A Colorful Life ~ Your Eccentric Self!

A few years ago I bought a book called "Creating A Charmed Life". It's one of those books you pick up when you need a quick lift and some perspective. The chapters are short and to the point and give great examples on how to live a rich, rewarding life.....A COLORFUL LIFE.
Today's inspiration ~ ENJOY YOUR ECCENTRICITIES!
Quoting Victoria Moran (the book's author), "We all have eccentricities. They don't make us crazy and we don't have to be rich for them to contribute lavishly to making us who we are. Our eccentricities are those parts of ourselves that don't fit a familiar pattern.
It takes a lot of energy to keep parts of yourself under wraps. Stifle too many of them, and you risk losing a bit of your soul. If instead of downplaying your more COLORFUL FACETS, though, you claim them along with your EARTH-TONED parts, you get to be a whole person rather than an easy stereotype."
I love this line of thinking. Be YOU, your most authentic self. It's really the only way to be truly happy!
