Stand Out - Be Different

We escaped to the beach in Florida to avoid the cold weather and celebrate the New Year.  To some, fifty degrees does not seem like weather you need to escape from but to Texans, fifty degrees is cold.  

I love to walk the beach in the morning before the crowds start their journey up and down the water's edge.  The beach is full of shells that crunch beneath your step.  As I walk a colorful or unusually shaped specimen will catch my eye.  I pause to bend down to pick it up, delighting in the uniqueness of my find.  I carefully add it to the growing collection in my hand.  

There are millions of shells on the beach, but it is the one that stands out from the crowd that catches our attention and interest.  

What are you doing to stand out from the crowd?  What risks have you taken or are you taking to express your uniqueness?
