Normal life. It’s what happens between the exceptional moments of our existence. The fantastic trip, the job promotion, the stolen moments with the love of your life. Amid those events sits your normal life.
Let’s face it. Even a celebrity has down time. And as we are not celebrities, and therefore have much more of the normal, what do we do with that time?
Do you know let the days between the peaks slip by in a blur? Or do we live life to its fullest capacity, even if it is merely enjoying the first cup of coffee or tea to start the day?
I have a feeling that if you sit around just waiting for the next great moment of your life you might miss out on actually living.
I think that those extraordinary experiences that define our lives are that much more remarkable when they aren’t the only thing holding your life together.
Think of a vast fence. One that stretches as far as the eye can see. Holding the fence together are posts that keep the overall structure sturdy and strong. Without the posts, the fence would fall.
Without the fence, the posts would have no purpose. And although it is the posts that stand out, neither part works without the other.
