About

I am a statistical outlier. Lots of us are. That doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with us, but often cultural messages tell us otherwise. In the face of societal pressure to conform, it can be hard to stand against the current, to find our own way. It can be difficult even to know what that means, to know who we are. This is the place for conversations outside the mainstream, the place to de-pathologize statistical outliers, the place to normalize and even celebrate all the ways we are “just different.” I hope it helps me be a better me, helps you be a you-er you, and helps us all love ourselves and each other a little more.

  1. How do I begin to – Thank You – for stopping over and following my humble blog-o-thing?!? I wish you the very best, not only today but well into the future. Be inspired and please take care.

  2. Read your good enough comments….and was reminded that in ’72 I decided I was not good enough. Graduated from university with BS, married to professor, mother of brilliant caring daughter of 12, I found myself writing my besetting sin (“not believing that I was good enough”) on a paper and placing it in a fire with a group of others who had written their ‘sins’ down. The holy fire consumed our sins and we had to call the volunteer fire department. I decided we needed a real fire department and now go into D.C. every chance I get to urge our military-industrial congressional complex to reinstate Glass-Steagall standards of banking so we can get on with economic justice that will support means for our citizens to have good nutrition, safe shelter, education and, of course, fire fighters, not from our penal system as many of them are now, but workers paid well enough to have families. But especially I have fun and I know I am good enough.
    All the best, Fern Henley
