100 Words on Love, by Lincoln Anthony Blades
At 18, I was a weird kid who routinely stressed myself out about finding the career I “needed” to pursue for the rest of my life, when I didn’t even know what brought me happiness. I didn’t fit in. At 19, I enrolled in university, when I really wanted to explore. Once again, I didn’t fit in. Then I worked many different jobs over the span of 10 years – before realizing I liked being fired. Not because I’m lazy, dimwitted, unskilled or rebellious – but because I love being my own boss. And now that I have my own company and living my dreams, I just wish that weird kid knew that not fitting in isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
