A thought about “normal”

Standard

Normal could be described as ordinary, average, usual and plain,
But to me that’s four reasons to stay the same.

And in a perfect world we would all be normal.
But in my world normal means perfectly plain.

And as far as anyone knows, we are a normal family………………

But as far as I know, nobody has a normal family!

 
Did you like my little rhyme up there?

This sign hangs in my kitchen and I don’t believe there’s one person out there that cannot relate to this in some way!

Despite what it says, being different is not something to be ashamed of.

I think too often we try to change those differences and compromise to make way for what we feel would be “acceptable”.
However,  is there really such a thing?
I believe normal has been a model of what perfect would look like – if it ever did exist. And the meaning of the two have become almost the same.  But the reason people see it as such, is because nobody is perfect, and no one has ever been able to achieve it!

There’s who you are, who you want to be and then there’s trying to be someone else.

If your trying to be normal, then you haven’t seen the benefits there are to being different.

Its actually another thing I’ve learned to have fun with! Once you accept it, your possibilities are endless.

Who cares if you eat breakfast for dinner, or have dessert for lunch….. if you want to try something when no one else does…..just do it! Because there’s nothing saying you can’t. And just because it doesn’t seem like the way things are “supposed” to be; maybe its supposed to different for you……

 Just something to think about. 😉

Living means having and accepting your differences and not trying to perfect them, because you never know where they might take you. Theres always something waiting to be discovered. You shouldn’t decide whether you want that based on the way others might judge you.

Because its not about what other people think.

and realistically, they’re not any closer to “normal” than the rest of us.
