I’ve had several people ask me how I find the material for my blogs.
It comes from a variety of places. Sometimes it’s just something that is on my mind, sometimes a result of reading or watching something on t.v., other times I will see the same subject pop up in different places in my life, and they seem to scream talk about me! Those are the ones I like the best.
Tonight it is the subject of being normal…
I don’t know why we are, as a society, so hung up on that. When did “normal” become such a big deal?
Personally, I’ve never been overly concerned about it. I remember when my kids were young, I was never the “normal” mom. I did goofy things all the time, sometimes embarrassing them, but I always reminded them how boring it would be to have a “normal” mom. Now, my daughter does and says exactly the same thing to her kids, and admits that under it all, she enjoyed having a bit of an off-beat mom.
I’m so glad!
I mean seriously… it’s really hard to pretend to be someone you’re not. I just don’t have the energy, even if I WANTED to try and pull it off.
But then this is the one that made me feel good that I’m not.
Is that not the coolest thing!? Not only is it exhausting to pretend like you’re normal, “BEING” normal shows a lack of courage! I LOVE it!
So my advice is, if you’re feeling like you’re not normal, embrace it. It is way more fun!
