If you are always trying to be normal
you will never know how amazing you can be.
I am not sure I know what normal is. What I do know is that I have always found it hard to fit in. As a child, it wasn’t too obvious that I was not like other kids. But in my teens, my different ways of thinking and behaving were noticeable.
Oh, I wasn’t wild or crazy acting. I was just different than my contemporaries. Most people did not understand me, and those my age often thought I was weird. But I did have some good friends that accepted me as I was, and that was a blessing!
As a young woman, I was a bit wild and crazy. With the wild craziness, I learned a few hard lessons that have served me well over the years. And I grew up to be who I am now. Maybe not amazing, but still different in how I think and live but in a quiet way.
Maybe I just don’t know what normal is.
I’m happily me.

If you spend too much time thinking about a thing,
you’ll never get it done.
I have proved this to be true many times.
Most recently I have been thinking about painting my bathroom. A couple of months ago I removed the wallpaper. Then I hired Phillip, the handyman, to prepare the walls for paint. Took three days of sanding, priming, sanding, skim coating, sanding, putting a finish coat on, and sanding. The hard work is done. Phillip did that. I just have to paint.
When I go to bed I tell myself tomorrow I will get the job done. But somehow when morning comes and tomorrow is gone, and I start thinking about painting today…well, let’s just say it’s a lot to think about and that takes time. By the time I have thought about it the day is half gone and there are better things to do. Or at least things that aren’t work that I don’t want to do today.
I will have to think about it.
