Celebrating differences

I came across the above quote on Twitter yesterday, it reminded me that the show, which first aired in 1966, was the first programme to pioneer inclusivity and connectedness with others at a time when other programmes were mainstream and trying to fit within the very small viewpoint of what was considered “normal”.

As times slowly change, for me delighting in difference is to consider and accept ourselves as unique and understand that working towards gaining acceptance of this is often more fulfilling than striving for the unachievable and unnecessary “normal”. It is useful to remind ourselves that the world would be a far less interesting place if we were all the same!
