“We’re not very different from other people, but those differences are very important.” -Gretchen Rubin
Deep in our guts we want happiness, success, equality, good health, comfort, and respect. We seek love and purpose as answers to life’s elusive questions.
While many things are universal among us, we are different in varying degrees – may it be in aspirations, beliefs, values, and idiosyncrasies. And these fine lines matter.
Because then we know who we are; we know where we stand.
If we have a policy of awareness and metrics towards our actions – a developing intimacy with what we are now and where we want to go – we are better equipped in honing our existing values, eliminating those that don’t help, discovering new interests, and becoming a better version of ourselves.
In turn, we want a curation of similar and different to unify and create diversity.
