Some people take pride in being ordinary; feeling embarrassed if they are even the slightest bit different than everyone else. But in fact, we weren’t born to be the same. We are here to stand out. To do something different and to bring something original into the societies we live in.
There are no ordinary people. Because everyone has a unique aspect that may take some effort to discover. Indeed, “genius is the capacity to see ten things where the ordinary man sees one” (Erza Pound).
Similarly, there are no ordinary moments. The moments are what we make of them. The feelings we share and the experiences we gather.
We are often prompted to find joy in what seems like the ordinary. Because, cliché as it may seem, it is in the little things that all the great emotions lie.
So when you feel like you’re just ordinary, think again. And do something a little bit different. Dare to change.
Remember, “the difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra” (Jimmy Johnson).
