In the Out
Raspberry Beret was a 1985 hit for Prince.
There’s a line in the song that always clicks with me: “She walked in the out door.”
Going against the norm makes you stand out. ‘Course, standing out can help you or hurt you.
I’ve never lived a linear life. Sometimes it’s worked, sometimes it hasn’t. When it works, it’s joyful; when it doesn’t, it can get problematic in the moment, lead to regrets down the road, and get you pointed at at parties (OMG! Did you see what he just did?!).
But, all in all, occasionally walking in the out door leads to a life of discovery and excitement … a life that is lived.
If you spend a lot of time living life as others have lived it, maybe it’s time for you to take a small chance and walk in the out door.
