I saw this yesterday and immediately thought of the folks in the Non~Normal & Proud of it Club.
If I didn’t know any better one of us created it!
When I started this club, it was to celebrate each of our uniqueness. What is interesting is, I never realized how many people embraced this side of themselves.
I love how many of you encourage your kids to love how “strange” & “different” they can be. I really do think this is awesome. Our children need to realize that the reality is, there is no real normal. That it is ok to be different from your friends.
Lets face it…
Life would be so much better if everyone had learned this lesson early in life.
Ok, you weird, deranged, freaky and psychotic folks…..I hope you liked the picture….
~~~till we laugh again~~~
Ok, by special request, here is a badge we can all put on our blogs if we are Proud to be in the Not Normal & Proud of It! ~ Club
Great idea! So here it is…. See how pretty it looks?
Be loud! Be Proud! Be Weird!
~~~till we laugh again~~~~
Most of my life people have thought I was a little odd. To them, I say – AND PROUD OF IT! 😀
Let’s face it, normal sucks. I like to embrace my uniqueness. Granted, I’m not as unique as some but unique in my own way. But isn’t that the way it is suppose to be?
If having no sense of humor is normal I don’t want anything to do with it. Not being able to laugh for no reason? Count me out. I want to laugh just cuz I found it freaking funny. No matter how stupid it may seem to you.
Acting a goofball out of the blue? Yep, I’m in. Dancing with a stuffed animal and pretending it is talking to me? You got it. Making funny voices when I talk to you? Oh yea.
Feeling as if the world has it out for me? NO WAY! I refuse to give in to the bad stuff that happens. I like my view on life. I refuse to be “normal” and be a chicken little like many others. I see the glass half full dang it! And it is, even if there is only a drop left in the darn thing.
So if you want to be “normal” and feel sorry for yourself, if you want to be “normal” and never laugh, if you want to be “normal” and act all mature and grown up 24/7 then have fun. If you want to miss all the funny stuff that happens during a day. You want to repress those urges to just let go – Then you be normal. Normal sucks.
I have a saying
Be mature but remain a kid at heart…
So don’t be normal… Laugh and don’t worry what other people think. It’s their depressed life and weird hang ups. Be you. The world would be a much better place if it would just embrace everyone’s “weirdness”…
And whatever you do, please let your kids be who they are, life sucks enough without you trying to make them “normal”…
