Living life outside the box. Challenging the status quo. Being a little rebellious. I’ve always been one of the black sheep. Feels pretty good. Living life a little different to the ‘norm’ isn’t easy. People are always wondering why you always have to be different or why your way of thinking is different to theirs. The thing is that I’m grateful for my left of centre way of life. My abstract thinking. Living outside the box. Stomping on that box. The thought of anything ‘normal’ just doesn’t feel right for me. But what is normal anyway?! We all live our own normal. We choose. We get to decide. We only get one shot at life. This is no dance rehearsal. This is it. The truth is, I’m one of those ones that can’t and won’t be tamed. I will always be fighting for who I am and what my soul is calling me for. What would you do differently?
The 2 ladies of my life, my lovely Lena and my beautiful Indjia. Strong, determined (read stubborn), intelligent women with ❤️. Today, Indjia is sitting the first of her maturità exams and my post is not only about how proud I am to be her mummy but it’s also a big middle finger salute to all those who never believed in her! Being different is a crime! How was she different? At nursery she once got up on the table and danced, they called me to school and said “signora, there wasn’t any music playing!” Yeah, so what! The girl’s got rhythm!! From then on, they tried to hang as many labels as they could from hyperactive to autistic! This problematic girl who they said wasn’t good enough for Lyceum is sitting her maturità today! UP YER BUM YE OF LITTLE FAITH AND NARROW MINDS!!

I've always been selfconsious about my left eye. Even after having surgery on it I'm still put off by its need to be a rebel. Some of my friends think it's cute but I find it hard to share this opinion. When I look in a mirror it reminds me of the struggles I've had pre and post brain surgery and it's been over 10 years since I had that. But you know what, it's time to love myself and love what makes me uniquely me. It's time to embrace myself. #selflove#selfacceptance#itsoktobedifferent
