Left shoe in right shoe world.

I always thought I was wrong because I either didn't learn or do things in what most consider to be the \"correct\" order. I discovered my unique personality is not wrong just different. I experience the world my own way. A number of years ago my Mom admitted that I drove her nutts. She said she told a neighbor lady she didn't know what to do with me. The lady told her \"he marches to the beat of his own drummer.\" I wish I had gotten the memo would have saved stress and confusion. I came up with this motto in my early thirties. It made me feel part of the world yet be me. Consequently, I have been places and tried things most would not because of their being locked into societal constraints. Where the naysayed or asked why, I said why not. I live my dreams today and I am free. Join the left shoe revolution.
