June 1973. Long hair is trendy. At 15, I’m hot (the sweaty kind).
“Mom, shave my head?”
Friends laughed. Neighbors pointed. Uncle Bob: “Well, this proves that the hair makes the man.”
But, I was cool (lower temp kind).
And, I must say, it felt outstanding to stand out—by not conforming.
Which, 40 years later, is a pretty cool thing to do.
Commonplace: Blame. Victim mentality. Entitlement. I deserve! thinking.
Not. Going. There.
Striving. Sweating. Producing. Serving. Contributing.
Be in the world, not of the world. Instead of conforming, choose personal accountability.
In what way have you and/or your family conformed to the world and wish you hadn’t? What/how will you now change? Please share!
