Day 1 of my Lisbon trip to attend the European Movement meeting with Ido Portal
Day 1 of my Lisbon trip to attend the European Movement meeting with Ido Portal. I’m frequently reminded of Ido’s message, ‘Be the Weirdo.’ It’s very easy to conform to societies unspoken rules to try and appear normal but in doing so you miss out on so much fun. I sat down at the ‘Urban beach’ in Lisbon for a couple of hours and didn’t see one person swim. They waded into the water, splashed their faces and legs but no one got in. Apart from me. I put this down to one of two things…a) sharks/pollution/knowing better for some other reason or b) individuals wishing to feel like they fit in with others around them. No one else is in the water so I’m not getting in mentality. Sometimes in life you have to jump in with both feet. Be the weirdo because there are probably a bunch of other people who deep down want to be weird with you!
