Normality is a paved road: it’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it. – Vincent Van Gogh
Most people know this about me. I’m not like others. I pride myself in standing out from the crowd. And if you know me well enough, you’d know why I’m saying that. Now, there are those odd moments when I question how good or bad this is for me. After all, most people spend their entire lives trying to fit in. That’s what I would call normal. It’s easier to fit in and do what everyone else is doing. But it’s never sat well with me. I prefer my abnormality. It’s where I’ve found myself. Found out who I really am and what I stand for. It’s helped me to dwell into the depths of my soul and reveal my identity to myself. This soulful journey, it’s safe to say, has brought me a sense of joy that words cannot possibly describe. If I have to relate this feeling to something, I can only think to tell you what flowers mean to me. In short, it’s the blossoming of a soul.
