Eclectic ec·lec·tic/əˈklektik/. adjective deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources.
Here is why I value being eclectic
Sticking to just one value would be quite hectic
Part of why I value this is because I am a skeptic,
If you just followed one rule your whole life things wouldn’t turn out as expected!
I like to let different things decide my action
I believe that my emotions play into it a fraction
Being eclectic means I balance all these things to create the right reaction
Being well rounded is what I aspire to be
I wouldn’t label myself one way or another because that excludes creativity
Choosing one way to live is too limiting for me
I am made up of many beliefs and values that I have collected
So reflecting upon some values I’ve selected,
With friends and family, I want to feel connected and go about my life in hopes to be respected
I also value philosophy, music, spirituality, and art
To always be in touch with my emotions and my heart
But if I feel that I am losing touch or beginning to fall apart...
Because I value eclecticism, I can always change, rearrange, and restart.
