Ek is vandag vir 1 jaar lank ‘n blogger!
Time flies when you’re having fun. Dankie vir al die wat lees en kommentaar lewer – “you just keep me hanging on…”
Hier is dan ook my eerste inskrywing. As ek dit so lees kom ek nogal agter ek het ook al ‘n lang pad gestap!
I saw a guy (at least I think it was a guy) wearing a gasmask today. The gasmask appeared to be circa World War 2. I currently live in a very clean city in far northern Europe, so the gasmask was definitely not there to protect against air pollution. My first thought was “freak!”. And then I felt bad for thinking that. He/she/it probably looked at me in my crocs-shoes and thought “freak!” too.
I generally regard myself as quite forward thinking and mostly non-judgemental. Whenever I see an individual who doesn’t quite blend into the blandness which is acceptable society I always give a silent “whoo-hoo man! You go” in my heart, because I know I don’t always have the guts to carry off who I am. I still largely bend the knee to please society. I fight for that which I truly believe in, but I am happy to mostly just go with the flow.
It has since struck me that I am perhaps the bigger freak for still thinking that others’ opinions of me determine my self-worth.
