Strangeness, Not Sameness

Photo by Sharmia Casiano

Sameness is good, but not good enough.

Strangeness is good, but scary.

Is there growth in sameness? No.

Sameness is boring, but strangeness is exciting!

There is no growth in sameness. All you do is the same. All you get is the same.

If what you are doing is not changing you,

if it is not growing you,

if it is not adding value to your life,

if you remain the same,

if it is not changing your thoughts,

if it is not making you uncomfortable,

if you are not learning from it,

if it is easy,

if you are not struggling to do it,

if you are not questioning yourself enough,

then change it.

It is just sameness.

Don’t pursue sameness, pursue strangeness.

The Flow

If you want to grow, you must not go with the flow.

You must face the demon within you.

You must face the task in front of you,

not going with the flow.

You must ask yourself some tough questions,

not just going with the flow.

You must always,

always question what you are doing.

You must always question yourself.

Do not just go with the flow,

question the flow.

Because life is about questioning things,

not going with the flow.

Because life is about

questioning everything.

And if you can’t question the flow,

if you can’t question the status quo,

if you can’t question why things are done the way they are done,

if you can’t question what you are passionate about,

then it is not the right flow for you.

Question the flow, then go with it.
