Let’s talk about flying your freak flag; what it is and what it’s not.
Flying your freak flag is fully embodying who you are here to be, without apologies. You are freely self-expressed and not afraid to flaunt the things that make you different.
I want to be clear –it’s not just about what you look like. It is about how you show up in the world. It’s all in your attitude!
People automatically assume I’m suggesting they get a big tattoo, dye their hair blue and wear latex to work, but that’s not where I’m going with this. Don’t get me wrong, if doing those things make you feel like a bad-ass, go for it, but it doesn’t have to be anything that drastic!
Flying your freak flag means that you feel good about who you are and don’t feel the need to hide. Rock out your own funky style and don’t be afraid to be different. Bust-a-move or sing along in the super market when you hear a song you like. Talk about your class in Japanese rope bondage, and your thoughts on spirituality. Let people see who you are and what you’re all about.
Flying your freak flag is not about rebellion or saying “Fuck You” to anyone. It is about feeling confidant and doing your thing. Take a stand for the things you’re interested in and want in your life, and allow other people to do the same.
Self acceptance is key! Know who you are, feel good about it, and embrace it. It’s all good! Every weird, quirky thing about you is just as it’s supposed to be.
Why is flying your freak flag important?
It allows you to fulfill your life’s purpose! Your purpose is to be 100% you in your full freaky glory and that is exactly what you’re doing when you’re flying your freak flag.
It also feels freaking awesome!! It’s so much easier to be who you are than it is to pretend and hide. You get to do the things that you’re interested in and meaningful to you. Life is way more fun! A cool side effect of flying your freak flag is that you encourage other people to do it too. It makes it so much easier to find the people and opportunities that you’re looking for.
The best reason for doing it- It will make your life Kick-Ass!
