Do you think you are living an ordinary life?
Maybe so. Maybe not.
In that, do you ever think about the story you are telling?
That is: The story that you write with your every breath.
Waking up. Coffee. Commute. Work. Friends. Family dinner. Playing with your children. Reading. Bedtime. Attitude. Heart. Effort. Patience. Peace. Kindness.
I mean: The symphony that plays as we all live our daily, sometimes ordinary lives.
Think about the universe as we know it.
How ordinary is life, anyway?
Maybe it is all pedestrian and boring.
Or, maybe it’s the most beautiful and rare thing imaginable.
“But this is what I’m finding, in glimpses and flashes: this is it. This is it, in the best possible way. That thing I’m waiting for, that adventure, that movie-score-worthy experience unfolding gracefully. This is it. Normal, daily life ticking by on our streets and sidewalks, in our houses and apartments, in our beds and at our dinner tables, in our dreams and prayers and fights and secrets—this pedestrian life is the most precious thing any of us will ever experience.”
