Here's To The Crazy Ones

"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward.

And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."
Too many of us are afraid to be different. Afraid to stand out– and I'm no exception. It's in human nature to conform. And yet our dreams are riddled with exceptions and not-so-ordinary tales. We dreamed of being astronauts while all the while we didn't want to admit that we were a little bit afraid of space, of the unknown.

That's the thing about dreams.

They scare the crap out of us, no sprinkles included. We fear obscurity. We fear failure. We must overcome phrases like "good enough" and "passable", because soon enough, that's what will become of ourselves.

I fear mediocrity.

Because mediocrity is an idle mind in disguise. And you always told me I couldn't make everything perfect, but I'm still going to try indefinitely– no matter how unhealthy it is.

Please try to understand.
