When we don't choose to act in the socially accepted conduct and if we choose not to conform to the norm, we are labeled as "REBELS". Being a non-conformist, apparently comes with being seen as odd and dissident. Personally, I see rebels as iconoclasts- people who try to oppose the widely accepted beliefs and practices- and propose a new and different way, which most of the times, isn't bad for someone. This is why I wore this shirt loud and proud as I have come to respect the people who don't just try to belong. If everyone just tried to do as society pleased... perhaps we would still be living in caves. Being a rebel enables people a chance to learn and discover new things... then can you imagine what world we would be living in then? One that has no chance for change and innovation simply because nobody tried to be defiant. Rebel without a cause...so the popular movie title goes... Personally, I believe most rebels do have a cause... even if they just have not realized that yet and I absolutely love just how this shirt emphasizes that more than ever. I was absolutely proud to wear it, that's for sure, for movie time with the family, something I know for sure I cherish and always look forward to. I find that spending time with the important people in your life as the best way to spend your time and granted that I belong to a close knit and loving family, any activity I get to do with them is so important for me, I wouldn't want to miss out on these opportunities to get to do so. And so, here I was in a sweater and houndstooth skort combination...out on a Friday night with my family...not hanging out in a bar or club, as one would expect of someone my age... being a rebel with a cause. Now isn't that just grand?
