If you visit a new place as a tourist
Would you prefer to blend in
Such that you are almost invisible…
Or would you be someone
Who would prefer to be noticed,
For your differences
And draw attention of others
Being able to blend in can often be a blessing in disguise.
As you look like you have been there and are aware of their ways of life.
You don’t stick out like a sore thumb.
Or behave as if you are out of place.
You tend to draw less attention perhaps, but there in is your safety in new locales.
You are adaptable and accepting of the new culture.
For some it’s really easy
For some it’s truly difficult
For they are by nature noticeable
Whether they like it or not!
What is your take on this…
Have you ever tried to blend in or stand out from the crowd
How has your experiences of traveling been so far ? Do share.

Oh Lord Dear Savvy on the Autism Spectrum
So Hard to Blend in Before i Could Speak Until
Four So Difficult to Blend in When i Stuttered
Such A Challenge to Frown Always When i Was
Told Boys Aren’t Allowed
to Smile Oh the
List Goes On and
On Until i Finally
Decided to Just Be me
Yet It’s True in This World or That
World You Only Get to Do that if One is Truly Free
Honestly Now i’m Glad i’ll Never Fit in A World
For the Song took Away
The Stuttering and the
Dance Took Away the Fear
What i Find is When i Treat Everyone Kindly
No Matter Who They Are and How Different
They May Be than me and Everyone Else
Generally Speaking That’s Enough
to Fit in HeART SPiRiT SoUL Now
No Matter Differences New
Of Course if i Went to a Different Place
in the World Just Like When i Went to School
And Went to Work for Grades and Pay Conformity
Is A Reality if
me is A
Requirement Free to Thrive
So i Continue to Thrive WHeRE i am
WHeRE Kindness is Truly An Only
Common Element i Need to Fit it..:)
