A round peg.

Today is my 25th birthday.  While I have to admit, I’ve been depressed thinking about hitting that dreaded quarter-century mark, today I am simply happy.  My 24th year was marked by unexpected changes. Tons of doors closed during the year, but even more opened, allowing me to run down a new, beautiful path.  My heart is filled with joy as I reflect on all the wonderful things that have come my way during the past year.

I’ve realized within the past year, that I will always be a round peg.  I’ll never fit into that square hole, but why should I want to?  Life is much more fulfilling in standing apart from the crowd rather than blurring into the grey background.  This year, I am embracing my round-peg-status.  24 was amazing, but I have a feeling that the best is yet to come… and I can’t wait to enjoy the ride.

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
