The Power Of Being A Black Sheep

Have you ever thought of yourself as a black sheep? If you answered yes, then congratulations!

You’re here to break cycles and be the innovator of new approaches.

⁣I know. It didn’t always feel this way. And maybe you don’t see it yet. Having the sense of being the odd one out can be uncomfortable.⁣⠀
When I decided to start naturopathic medical school back in 2006 before people even knew what the word “naturopathic” meant, everyone asked me why I wasn’t going to “regular” medical school to be a real doctor.⁣⠀
I’ll admit that I wasn’t completely unscathed by their remarks, and I didn’t exactly know what to tell them, but I knew that I was following my heart, my intuition, and my deep inner knowing.⁣ Looking back I can confidently say that I was absolutely on the right path and have zero regrets.⁣⠀
Today, I’m working to shift the current health and wellness paradigm by sharing everything I know with other aligned health practitioners. ⁣Helping them expand their reach, increase their impact, and fall madly in love with the life they are co-creating.⁣⠀
Going against the grain doesn’t always make us popular among our family-of-origin, our peers, and colleagues.⁣ But there’s power in it.⁣

Eventually, as we step into this power we find ourselves surrounded by communities of black sheep. We find belonging.⁣ True belonging we couldn’t have found by attempting to shove ourselves into neat little generic boxes to make those around us more comfortable.⁣⠀
If you’re in need of some words of encouragement today, check out this quote from Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Ph.D. that I simply adore: ⁣⠀
“Do not cringe and make yourself small if you are called the black sheep, the maverick, the lone wolf. Those with slow seeing say that a nonconformist is a blight on society.⁣⠀
But it has been proven over the centuries, that being different means standing at the edge, that one is practically guaranteed to make an original contribution, a useful and stunning contribution to her culture.”⁣⠀
Being a black sheep comes with its own unique set of challenges, but it can also be a tremendous opportunity. As a black sheep, you are gifted with the chance to break free of the suffocating confines of others' expectations and blaze your own trail on a journey of personal freedom and transformation.
