When we’re growing up, we go about our days trying to fit in. Especially, in high school, when there’s a focus on what you do and who you are. But as time goes on, you begin finding your own path. Making your own decisions at the forks in the road. And suddenly you really start discovering yourself. What you like, what you believe in and what you stand for. The experiences we encounter lead to the differences in each of us. As Coco Chanel once said: “In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.” So, today, dare to be different.
“It’s more interesting to have just a picture of a small detail – then you can dream all the rest around it. Because when you see the whole thing, what is there to imagine?”
-Dries Van Noten

When I was five years old my mother told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. I told them they didn’t understand life.” – John Lennon
