WHY BE NORMAL?
Does anyone really know what being "normal" means? If you do, I'd like for you to tell me what that entails. Not that I personally want to be considered normal, hey far from that I can assure you.Because from what I have experienced in my life all the so called normal people seemed to live a rather dull life in my book.Not that there is anything wrong with living a dull life if thats what you want to do. Then again what is considered dull? The more I try to think about it the more I confuse myself.Not that it takes too much to confuse me you know.Way back in my younger day I remember having a tee shirt that asked the question "WHY BE NORMAL" I wore it proudly I must say. Cause I never wanted anyone to consider me normal.I can also recall seeing a tshirt that stated "NORMAL PEOPLE SCARE ME" I wanted one of those shirts for myself but never did find one.Now that I've gotten much older I suppose I kinda like being "normal" and just blending into the crowd. I always said if everyone thinks you are normal they expect you to behave in a certain manner. But if you were considered "crazy" or "different" you could do just about anything you wanted short of breaking the law and people would just say ah hell dont pay him no mind he's just crazy. Hey it worked for me! Today as I go about my business I see the young folks trying so hard to be different while at the same trying to fit in with their peers.Man, am I glad I dont have to play those games anymore! I guess you could say that I have finally arrived at the place where I am just happy to be here. It no longer matters to me what anyone may think of me just as long as they accept me and all my "weirdness" without being too judgemental. And my hope is that each of you have arrived at the place where you too are happy within yourself and no longer need to feel normal or anything else other than what you are within you heart. Because to me that is the highest from of freedom one can attain. I will leave you first of all with a quote from the Science Of Mind which states:I see that the future is bright with promise. It beckons me forward into a more complete realization of my own worth and my rightful place in the Universe. I sincerely hope you can agree with that statement!And now one final quote from Shirley Briggs who once stated:"Let's dare to be ourselves, for we do that better than anyone else can." How true Shirley Briggs, how true! "HUGS" to all.
