  • Wisdom Wednesday A Quote from Albert Einstein Heidi Oran, Writer
    More info
    (source) Albert Einstein was well-known for his groundbreaking work in the field of Science, however, throughout his years he imparted much wisdom to the world - this weeks Wisdom Wednesday quote is one of my favorites. Each of us interpret words to have different meaning - to me this quote is about acknowledging and embracing your uniqueness. I have never been one to fit in with the crowd. From a young age I preferred to spend my hours reading a book while at home, or working in the library during recess while at school. I found my refuge in books which allowed me to perhaps protect what made me different, and keep it sacred. As an adult I have been able dive into whatever adventure I choose, mostly fearless of the outcome. Today I read a new article about youth suicide, which reminded me how difficult it can be for children to comprehend that being different, being unique is a beautiful thing. That perhaps whatever is setting them apart from the crowd will be the catalyst to a life of authenticity and joy. Please share this quote if you know anyone struggling with their own uniqueness or inability to "fit in". Sometimes a gentle reminder is all that is required to help someone move forward.
