I started the morning watching the above TED talk. If you don't know what TED is that's okay, but know that you've probably been influenced by or heard something from one of their talks before.
TED is a platform for ideas worth spreading. Started in 1984 as a conference where technology, entertainment and design converged, TED today shares ideas from a broad spectrum — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independent TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
Watching the above talk I couldn't help but tear up a little bit as unsurprisingly I connected with it as is often the case with many TED talks that I've watched. This one however got me in my core, that bit of me that can't decide who or what to be. The thing that drives me to follow all my interests whole heartedly.
If you've not watched it, the talk is basically about "multipotentialites" better known as polymaths or renaissance men. Basically someone who has many skills and uses them to solve the tasks in front of them. There are many different types and they're basically people who don't fit one specific role/job/skill set. Honestly I think this applies to a lot of the world's population today and I'd be surprised if it didn't.
While watching it I realised it's not easy being me but to me it's normal to be doing a video one second, writing a blog post the other, making costume and then making models all while doing my day job in social media.
I already knew most of what the video was saying but it's really odd hearing someone else explain...how and who you are basically.
Learning new skills is a joy for me, sometimes it's hard but it's always fun so I like to sink my teeth in, and jump into the deep end whatever it is (unless it's water...I'll jump but may not come up).
I can't tell you how many times people have suggested dropping some shows and hobbies to make more time for "having a life" but that's just not me. So like the video suggests I'm going to embrace my inner wiring and accept "being me". To be honest over the past 3 years I have embraced myself but more so since I started my blog. I don't see myself stopping...I like being me.
