Dare to be Different

Lately I’ve been seeing more and more people second-guessing themselves in SL.

People who feel they must live up to someone else’s expectations and desires.

Everyone has something of value to offer.

Everyone.

We all have our own needs, wants, and insecurities, and we bring those RL things with us into SL.

I firmly believe that everyone should do whatever makes them happy (as long as you’re not harming anyone else in the process).

In the dance community, as everywhere else, people are different.

Do you have an idea for a dance that seems a bit ‘off the wall’?

Do it!

Do you have a similar idea for a dance that someone else has already done?

Do it!

Do you have an idea for a dance that you really love, but think others will dislike?

Do it!

Don’t let others’ opinions and feelings drive what you do – in SL or RL.

I’ve talked to so many people who obviously feel on some level that they are not ‘good enough.’

We are all responsible for our own happiness, so don’t let other’s opinions affect how you feel.

Like dancing naked?

Do it!

Like using a million particle effects in a dance?

Do it!

It’s our differences that keep life interesting.

Are you doing something differently than I would have?

Of course.

That’s the point.

How boring would life be if we were all the same?
