It’s good to be with others, and sometimes it’s fine to follow the crowd. But sometimes we have to summon the courage to swim alone. And that means going against the tide of popular opinion in order to do what we believe is right -- whether we're choosing a career, taking a stand on an issue, or making unconventional choices with our clothes.
Swimming alone means trusting our instincts and following our hearts, even when everyone around us thinks we're crazy.
I'm pretty sure that's not what this duck was thinking as it swam under the bridge. But it's what came to mind for me as I watched it.
