Weirdness


Do you embrace your inner weirdness? :)

We all have quirks, eccentricities and odd qualities that define us. We all have strange habits. And each of us has interests and passions that excite us, but may seem weird to others.

As part of my fearless year, I'm embracing my inner weirdness, and I encourage you to do the same!



I, for example, love to hula hoop. I don't mind being the one adult at the kid's birthday party joining in on the fun and showing the kiddos what to do. 


 

I've got half of my head shaved, and a bunch of tattoos, both of which are great conversation starters. I'm a wine-drinking yogi, and sometimes I like to break the rules. (Shh, don't tell the yoga police! ;)

 

I also brew my own kombucha at home, which means I know all about caring for a scoby and I like drinking fermented tea, which some people find to be gross and very weird.

I sing in the car, often at the top of my lungs, and there have been various times when I pull up to a stoplight and the person in the car next to me laughs, noticing my silly antics and dance moves.

I sing Sanskrit mantras, too.


I've been known to do yoga in public places. :)

I'm a little OCD... I like to have my tabs arranged a certain way when I open my internet browser and I like the kitchen sink to be clean as much as possible.

I'm an empath, which means I'm very aware of the energy that surrounds me. I sometimes keep a crystal in my pocket, to ground me and to keep negativity away.


I notice the little things, like if something's been moved in a room, or when someone's body language doesn't match what they're saying.

When I laugh unexpectedly, it's a really loud, silly-sounding laugh (HA!).

I'm a big nerd when it comes to writing, grammar and spelling, and I could talk your ear off any day about yoga, blogging, or reiki healing.


I'm weird :)

And let's be honest, everyone's a little weird. So if you find yourself judging your own weirdness, or resisting it, take a breath. Have a laugh. Consider how your weirdness is what makes you so fun. 

Keep it weird, yogis!
