The Established Norms

Do you find yourself saying things like:

This is how it’s done.When you go to that kind of outing, you must wear this.This is the proper thing to say.

Really? Whatever it is, it wasn’t always like that. Think about it. The proper way to shift gears in a car was with a stick until the automatic was invented. Thick,fluffy down was proper in a warm, winter coat until Thinsulate made less bulky options available. As for the proper thing to say, well, maybe if you are unwilling to rock the boat, be real, take a risk in service of what you really believe in.

Today is an invitation to notice:

Where do I follow the established norms blindly?
What if I don’t?
What’s possible if I break the rules?
What’s it worth?

What is YOUR wisdom?
