Make the Ordinary Come Alive
Do not ask your children
To strive for extraordinary lives
Such striving may seem admirable
But it is a way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
And the marvel of an ordinary life
Show them the joy of tasting
Tomatoes, apples and pears.
Show them how to cry
When pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure
In the touch of a hand
And make the ordinary come alive for them
The extraordinary will take care of itself
I recently read an article about blogging and it made me feel like my blog is bound to fail unless I reorganize my thoughts and put more direction to it. I have been trying for a while to put it under a category but I just can’t. It’s nothing really, it’s just a blog about a girl going through life. That doesn’t please me too much. It’s time to get real specific on what this blog is really about. Here’s my attempt to answer the 5W’s to find some direction.
This blog is for normal people like you and me. The ordinaries. The men and women who have nine to five’s and love (or probably dread) it. This is for anyone who wants to find the wonder and marvel of an ordinary life. Being ordinary is not the problem, it is not making the most out of it.
This is a space to inspire you to find the extra in anything ordinary to make it extraordinary. I like sharing about the most random thing but I believe that nothing is ever random. It was predestined for us to encounter it for us to learn something from it, no matter how small or insignificant it might seem.
Extra + Ordinary can be found anywhere all you need is a new perspective and a fresh set of eyes.
Life happens all the time. There is no pause button for it. When life happens, you can always find something to inspire you.
Life is too short to overlook the simple things in life. Most of the things that truly make you happy is already in front of you. It’s just a matter of grabbing and appreciating it.
I guess I’m trying to say that my site is as ordinary as it gets. However, amidst it’s being ordinary, I hope I can inspire you to find life’s simple marvels. If I had to put it into a category, I would surely include it in Inspiring. I want this space to inspire normal people to strive for more without overlooking what they have in front of them. It’s not always about being big all the time. It can be as simple as accepting and appreciating what you already have and make that big. Not everyone can have the life they dreamed of, but we can all have a happy and content life.
