How Do We Define Normal?
What is a normal life? We’re told from a young age what the steps are in life that will make us responsible, happy adults. Go to school, graduate high school, go to college, graduate college, get a good job, get married, have kids…and on it goes. As if life is supposed to just be this one extensive checklist of things to do, and then we’re taught to believe that doing these things will make us happy.
That you made it in life. Not the case for everyone. Not everyone is wired the same, and that is OK. That’s what makes this world so exciting and unique. We are not all here to walk down the same path. From my perspective, if we go through life and follow what others think we should be doing, we will never be fully fulfilled. The excitement of the new job, serious relationship, that promotion starts to wear off.
How Do We Feel Fulfilled In Life?
We feel fulfilled and accomplished from the excitement of those around us, but as time goes on and you are the one sitting in that seat, sitting in your truth, reality sets in. We blame it on work. We blame it on the other person. We blame it on classes being too hard. But the reality is that if you are not truly happy and not living your truth, you won’t feel fulfilled, ever. The job can change, and the relationship can change, but if the path you are walking on is still the same at its core, you’re longing for something more will never cease. But going off the beaten road can often lead to judgment and ridicule.
So, what do we do then? We learn to love ourselves, knowing that some won’t understand. We have to learn to be so sure of ourselves that the voices of others’ judgments don’t guide us. And this is often the hardest thing to remember. Something I am still working on, and I don’t think it will ever be something that will be fully finished. Each day we have to fight to be who we are at our core.
Living in fear or living in contentment is what we know. You know, the “everything’s fine, I’m fine” line we continue to say, not only to ourselves but to those around us. Knowing all too well that it’s complete bullshit. It is what is more manageable than facing fear. We only have this one life, don’t sit on it.
You Are In Control Of Your Destiny
I have spent most of my life following what I thought would make everyone happy, what I knew people would approve of. Looking for that pat on the back, as if somehow it was a show of love. You know what I have learned. Those who genuinely love you let you be you. Have crazy ideas and tell you to go for it. Congratulate you for following your dreams even if they don’t understand it, or it’s not their dream. Unconditional love is letting each one of us find our normal AND let us live in our normal. So don’t be afraid to go find your normal or at least use that fear to fuel the fire of your soul.
Wishing you love, light and inner peace babes ✌🌈✨💜
