When I started a new job last year, it took me almost two months to start hiding mini rubber chickens in peoples stuff. And it took everyone else a few more weeks to figure out just what was going on. Seeing as I have hidden over 500 chickens in the world, they have some catching up to do at work.
It's not that I advocate people being anything but themselves, because I don't. But, as a curator of weird shit, I have learned that it is an art and a good strategy to not put all the weirdness out at once. Hopefully by sharing a little at a time, I can help bring joy to my day and to others, and quietly convince people that it is okay to be funny, and carefree, and weird, and unique, and yourself. I think that I learned it was okay to be a little weird by one person in my life, and I am glad I came to the realization that being myself would be enough.
If you are feeling unsure sometimes about being yourself and letting the weird out, just do a little bit at a time. You can also surround yourself with at least one person who really is comfortable with being a little weird. All the right people will appreciate you for you, not in spite of you.
