In this smart, powerful, and eye-opening TED Talk, Caroline McHugh reveals her insights on individuality — what keeps us from embracing our own uniqueness and how to fully possess it.
“Life is large. But most of us don’t take up nearly the space the universe intended for us, we take up the sweet space around our toes, which is why when you see somebody in the full flow of their humanity, its remarkable. They’re at least a foot bigger in every direction than normal human beings. And they shine, they gleam, they glow. It’s like they swallowed the moon. And all the work I’ve done has led me to believe that individuality really is all it’s cracked up to be, in fact people who are frightened to be themselves will work for those who aren’t afraid.”
