We Are All Sheep At Heart
Its good to be different.
When everyone faces the same way, they all see the same things. Walking down the street? Then look up rather than at your feet. In a city with tourists? Look away from the sights and the tour guides. Look behind the facade, face away from the masses and see what they are missing.
This simple view of life can be inspiring.
Although we are all sheep at heart, there is something terrifying but exciting about ignoring the crowds and walking a road less traveled.
Most of us are not brave enough. I get that. But just look over your shoulder occasionally and keep your eyes open.
I walked through London recently. Towards the places and buildings that inspire and attract me. Places that I love to explore. But I stopped and turned.
And saw the most wonderful view. Of a building that I had seen but never noticed and a skyline that I rarely acknowledge and admire.
To be different for a moment is to widen your horizons and increase your experiences. And sometimes the elements conspire to reward your efforts.
