Everyone has their own definition of cool, but this principle is close to our hearts:
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. – Romans 12:2
We get a kick out of experimenting and doing things a little differently in life. From the WonderWash, to cutting our own hair, to giving our kid salads. The larger goal is not just to be different, but to be transformed by the one who made us. To actually live by what we tell ourselves we believe and value. What could be cooler than that?
If this makes us “not a success” in the eyes of most Americans, then so be it. We can’t imagine living any other way. We gotta fight…for our right…to beeee weird!
On that note, we want to thank you, our readers, for coming along for that ride. We’d love to hear your stories.
We’re looking for folks to guest post or interview here on Are We Still Cool. Please email us and let us know how you’ve gone against common sense to chase your dreams or live more closely to your own values or beliefs.
Maybe you dropped out of college to start your own business? Or moved to the country to start a farm? Or quit your job to pursue your creative passions? Come on over. Inspire us!
