FIND YOUR WEIRD Finding your weird is a lot like finding your voice. Although, your voice is more about your passion, your story, your way of communicating with the world. Your weird is that thing you do that people would miss if you were gone. Your weird is the thing that keeps your followers following you. Your weird puts a smile on a face or an idea in a mind or money in your pocket. Your weird is how we remember you. What's your weird? If you don't know, ask someone. Ask lots of people! When you embrace your weird, you love your life, share your story, meet new people, experience great things, freak yourself out, live on purpose, "save the whales," enjoy the moment. Find your weird. But first, breathe.
