“If the ladder is not leaning against the right wall, every step we take gets us closer to the wrong place.” – Stephen Covey
Normal is running non-stop through life. Normal is working hard, paying bills and still piling up debt. Normal is buying things you don’t need because we think we’re supposed to. Normal is taking selfies for Facebook to impress people you don’t know and hope they click the ‘Like’ button. Normal is grabbing a Starbucks on the way to a job you hate, grabbing fast food for lunch, ordering takeout for dinner and watching some mindless TV before bed; stop-rinse-repeat. Normal is working too much, spending too much, sleeping too little, eating poorly and dying too young. If any of this sounds like you then maybe it’s time to re-evaluate your situation. Trust me; the 70 year old working at Taco Bell isn’t there because he loves Chalupas, he’s there because he still has bills to pay. Is this really the life you want? Maybe you wonder how in the heck did I get here? You expected life to be a certain way and yet you’ve done what everyone else has done and forgotten why you do it. Now, I’m not saying you shouldn’t work hard, what I am saying is that maybe your hard work isn’t getting you all it could. Focus on what you want. Set goals, real goals, and focus your efforts on getting there.
Being normal is being broke and stressed out; look around and ask yourself if this is where you want to be 5 years from now. Life is about more than just working to buy things you don’t need, spending money you don’t have just to appear normal – the heck with normal!
One day over 10 years ago we came to the realization that we were ‘normal.’ We began a journey to change that: here’s our story Fear of taking that next step – the journey continues
