I Dream / I Feel

Day 21: “Different is Good.”

“Different is good. So, don’t fit in. Don’t sit still. Don’t ever try to do less than you are,” she said. “When somebody tells you you’re different, smile and hold your head up high and be proud. And as you’re villain, I would also say — cause a little trouble. It’s good for you.” ~ Angelina Jolie

 

This concludes all I got to say today. She made a magnificent point. 

Don’t settle in. 

Don’t fit in. 

Don’t be scared to speak your voice. 

Stand up tall for what you believe in. 

Cause trouble. The world needs that kind of trouble. 

Challenge the rules. 

Ask questions. 

Ask answers. 

That’s how we make a difference. 

Start with yourself. 

The rest will fall into place. 

 

“I want to say that when I was little, like Maleficent, I was told that I was different,” continued Jolie. “And I felt out of place—too loud, too full of fire, never good at sitting still, never good at fitting in. And then one day I realized something—something that I hope you all realize. Different is good. When someone tells you that you are different, smile and hold your head up and be proud”—she then winked at the crowd, adding—“cause a little trouble… it’s good for you.”

 

Peace & Love,
