Thursday thoughts…

If you are always trying to be normal
you will never know how amazing you can be.
Maya Angelou

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.
That’s okay.
I’m happily me.

  1. I love that quote. I was never a 9 to 5er either, and continue not to be. But who is really? The person who looks so perfect on paper isn’t necessarily the happiest. You always sound peaceful to me, which is, in my humble worth 2 cents opinion, where the fruit is. πŸ™‚

  2. I love that quote and that sweet kitty face. Our Dad can relate, he has never been accused of being normal and probably never will.
