Are you tired of feeling like you’re a square peg trying to fit into a round hole? Does the world look down on you because you aren’t living the 9 to 5 suburban drone lifestyle? Do people always ask you why don’t you have it together, why can’t you be like so-and-so over there?
And what they really mean is why don’t you have:
* a McMansion in the suburbs
* a “respectable” office job complete with paid vacations and a 401k
* a trophy wife/wallet
* 2.5 neurotic children
(And you better have it all by the time you’re 30 or ELSE! 😅)
I’m here to tell you that you don’t need these things. They’re the sphere of the orange tigers. Nothing against orange tigers, God love ’em– and I’m not being flippant here, I really mean it. The world is full of them, and they do a lot of the day-to-day get-er-done things that people like you and I can’t always be bothered with.
The trouble is, for the most part, orange tigers mean well, but they can’t always relate to people outside of their own little box. So they worry about the people like us, and sometimes they may secretly think that there’s something wrong with us, or even feel sorry for us.
Lurking orange tigers, hear this. There is nothing wrong with those people among your circle of family and friends who buck the status quo and go their own way in life. We don’t want or need your pity. We are the dreamers, the artists, the magic bean buyers, and we’re tired of feeling like we’re somehow less than you because you know what?
* We don’t envy you, and we don’t want you to envy us.
* We are grateful for what we have.
* We have chosen to embrace the freedom to pursue our passions
And Rainbow Tigers aren’t meant to be orange tigers, anymore than orange tigers can ever be Rainbow Tigers. And telling a Rainbow Tiger to hide their fantastic rainbow stripes in favor of trying to pass as an orange tiger, well… that’s just downright cruel in my book.
If you carry a heavy load of baggage from your past that weighs you down and causes you to lose sight of who you are truly meant to be, you are welcome here. My own journey has been long indeed, and I have much to say about all of it, but first let me start with this:
You were created beautiful, and you are meant for amazing things, but you and I both know that the world doesn’t always treat those who are different with kindness.
I hope that this blog (and the rest of the website too!) will become a haven for you in your journey.
Embrace your inner tiger and dare to be Rainbow!
