BLOG – GIFT DAY 362 :: how to stand out

28 Dec

There’s something very common about standing out. 

It’s all about being different. Unexpected.

Here’s something unexpected…The 14 Habits of Highly Miserable People:
It caught my attention because it’s just the opposite of what I expect to see this time of year: The Official Ramp Up To New Year Resolutions and all the positive goals and ideas that come with it.

Being different is sometimes as easy as giving in wholly and completely to being YOU.  Which completely flies in the face of everything we learn in school — sitting in a row, obeying the rules, sticking to the code, following the pack, standing in line, not rocking the boat.

I know from first hand experience. I followed the rules. I even dealt the rules! I was (full disclosure) a card carrying “patrol” in orange hard hat and sash in grade school. (I know you were too!)

It can be hard to break out when trying to keep up with the pack. 

So tonight, I am inspired by this very unique rendition of  “Shattered” —
I can’t quite explain it, so please watch it for full effect.

All I can say is that it is different. Unexpected.

(Eddie Vedder performing “Shattered” by The Rolling Stones with Jeanne Tripplehorn (as Julie Andrews) at a fundraiser for Heal EB. Donate to Heal EB here: http://bitly.com/Donate_HealEB)

Yes, that’s right — as Julie Andrews.
(Seriously, watch it!)

So, as I was saying…. sometimes it’s hard to stand out.
But I am inspired by those who stand up and say, sing, yell, whisper or boldly go where no one has ever (though to) go before.

Whether it’s channeling Julie Andrews to sing The Rolling Stones or marching to your own beat.

What’s your unique rendition?
How can you share your gifts?
How can you be more YOU?
More tomorrow.
