Did you ever really think about the word remarkable and what it actually means? When something is remarkable, that means is it worth making a remark about or worth mentioning. What makes something worthy of making a remark about? To answer that question, think about the weather. When you mention the weather and I don’t mean you mention it just because you are in an awkward situation and cannot think of anything else to say, but when you really mention the weather, why do you do it? It is because the weather is different. You will say, “This weather has been really nice lately.” However, if the weather was like that all the time there would be no need to say anything about it. Being different is being remarkable.
If being different is being remarkable, then we not only need to accept our differences but we need to embrace them and flaunt them. We need to find what make us different from everyone else and show it off to the world. We need to give people something to remark about. We cannot be afraid to stand out and make an impression. This may be hard sometimes but you do not always get the results you want by taking the path of least resistance. Do you think that the people who change the world are the ones that just try to blend in? Are the people who are living their dreams the ones that followed everyone else? I would bet a lot of money, if I wasn’t a broke college student, that they are the ones that are not afraid to be different, are not afraid to goes against the crowd, and are not afraid to be remarkable.
We all need to ask ourselves, are we going to be like those senior citizen development where every house is the same and play it safe or are we going to be like those flying pigs everyone talks about. I am going to choose the latter but the choice is up to you. Will you choose to play it safe or be remarkable?
