“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Those who don’t get Rebelliousness seem to define it as chaos, bad manners and meaningless banter. Those who do get Rebelliousness associate it with bad-assery (if there were such a word), standing up for a cause, having and believing in an argument and edging towards anything out of the norm. I don’t know where you stand, I belong in the latter.
The concept of living rebelliously hits close to home, not because I’m consistently fighting battles to prove others wrong, although I do admit, sometimes it feels that way. But personally, living rebelliously has always meant belonging to my actions and my thoughts, having a solid foundation of beliefs worth fighting for; loving tattoos and piercings is just an added artistic benefit.
Speaking of art, I recently met the man behind ‘Rebel Living’, a décor boutique store. Art comes naturally to this guy and charm is second nature, he is really passionate about his work, that speaks through his bespoke nonconformity. Right in the middle of the Ripe Market, you’d find him entertaining his customers with his quirks or if you’re lucky enough, you might find him working on his art. If you’re positively acclaimed for your knack for (un)conventionalism, I’d strong suggest you check out his store (both in Ripe Market and online). The pieces are quite intriguing and distinctive and I’m sure it won’t disappoint. I have my eye on the ‘I am Rebel’ pillow, so I hope y’all don’t beat me to it :).
