+ fitting in, not blending in +

Are you fitting in or blending in?

Think about it.

Their partners-of-sorts are sticking out and standing out.

Words are tricky beasts, and they will form your lives whether you are conscious of it or not.

If you are fitting in, you are a piece that has found the puzzle it belongs to. Your identity compliments and completes something greater.

If you are blending in, you are no longer a piece. Your identity is washed in with the rest and you become unvaluable as an individual.

As kids, we paid a high price to fitting in. And it's healthy. But maturity comes when you push one step further - adding value to your personal brand that makes you stand out, and falling one step back - retaining your original self.

Be invaluable, not unvaluable.

Fit, but don't blend.

If you need some help, you might want some help in determining which is leading you: expectation, or vision.

Also, I've changed some things around on the blog. Cleaned it up, and added some new tabs at the top. And a little bio!
