In a Room full of Wallflowers, be the Wildflower.

In a room full of wallflowers, be the wildflower.

 

You will be remembered.

 

Not sure about you but when I was in school I just wanted to be like everyone else. Attention wasn't something I was craving for.

 

Being an adolescent child can be hard at times and we find our authenticity sometimes just that bit further down the road.

 

My aha moment came when I finished my A- levels. I knew I wasn't going to university and having lived by myself from being 15 in a professional youth academy set up of a then 2nd Bundesliga team in Germany I learned to stand on my own 2 feet quite early in life.

 

I couldn't pretend that I was just like everybody else because well I just wasn't, and I don’t want my beautiful daughter growing up to pretend she is just like everyone else because she’s not either.

 

I want her to grow up being true to herself from a young age.

 

In today's society people are quick to judge others as "weird" and put other ugly labels on them but what they forget is that "normal" is a relative term and that our realities are very different.

 

Here's to all the wildflowers out there.
