- Nia Jax had fans talking on Twitter yesterday with the following post on her "I'm Not Like Most" tagline. She wrote:
I love my tagline, "I'm Not Like Most." I love what it stands for. With so many people trying to fit into a mold (something I've definitely been guilty of in my own life), I love this loud, proud reminder that it's our differences that make us individual and unique. It's taken time and work and humility, but I'm so glad that I'm in a place where I can honestly say that I'm proud of my differences. Everyday I'm more and more excited to embrace those differences because they are what make me unique; I wouldn't be me without them.
For me, "I'm Not Like Most" is more than just a tagline, it's a powerful message. Embrace and accept your differences! Find out what makes you "Not Like Most" and own it! There's a lot of power in it, A LOT of power and (probably more importantly) a lot of peace.
