Embrace Your Uniqueness: Why being a "Crocked Tree" is so empowering
Post’ inspiration can come from everywhere, can’t they?
Today’s post comes from my current favourite song: “Crooked Tree” By Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway.
The power of words lies in their ability to capture the essence of our experiences and emotions, and in my opinion, this song captures how important it is to reflect on these empowering moments where you take possession of who you truly are.
Embrace your imperfections and recognize the strength that comes from owning your uniqueness.
It's easy to get caught up in the pursuit of perfection and conformity, especially in today's world of social media where we are bombarded with images of seemingly flawless individuals. BUT the reality is that none of us are perfect. We all have our quirks, insecurities, and struggles. And it's these imperfections that make us who we are.
Instead of trying to hide or fix our flaws, we should learn to embrace them. When we accept our imperfections, we free ourselves from the burden of constantly striving to meet an unattainable standard. We can instead focus on cultivating the qualities that make us unique and leveraging them to achieve our goals.
Be true to yourself and your values.
Taking possession of who we are also means being true to ourselves and our values. It means not compromising on our beliefs or principles to fit in or please others. This can be a challenging task, as we often face pressure to conform to societal norms or the expectations of others. But when we stay true to ourselves, we are empowered to make decisions that align with our vision and purpose.
Reflect on these empowering moments.
Reflecting on empowering moments where we've taken possession of who we are can help us stay grounded and connected to our true selves. It can be a source of inspiration and motivation, reminding us of the strength and resilience we possess. By embracing our imperfections and being, we can become the best versions of ourselves and live a fulfilling life.
Being a "crocked tree" may not be the ideal of perfection, but it is a symbol of uniqueness and strength. Let’s all strive to be crooked trees, standing tall and proud!
Have a listen to the song, and let me know that it brings up for you.
