In Oregon, we have a wonderful berry called the marionberry. This is a delicious combination between two types of blackberries. The perfect blend of sweet and tangy. And it only grows in the northwest.
Even though the marionberry is a combination between two types of fruit, it is its own fruit. It takes the best from both worlds and makes something new. We see this in a lot of places- books, movies, fashion, etc... when you find something you love from different genres and combine them together, sometimes you can create something fantastic, something different, and something unique.
So take the good, and find new ways to incorporate it in your life. Don't settle for what is being given, make something better. Find that right combination for you, and make it your own. Embrace your individuality.
*** and on a side note- go get some marionberries! They are DELICIOUS!
