On Being Normal

Have I ever shared my theory about normalcy with you, friends?

Here it is, in all of it's profound glory:

Everyone is awesome.
Everyone is average.
Everyone is awkward.

I'm convinced it's simply a matter of what situation they are placed in. There's a painfully awkward kid in all of us, there's someone who's boringly mediocre in each of us, and there is an all-out rock star in each of us.

So, I guess what I'm trying to say is, if you're ever feeling awkward or non-descript, remember that you're truly awesome. (And remember that when you're talking to someone who is showing their awkward side just a bit [or a lot], that given the right stimuli they could blow you away with how brilliant/funny/kind/etc. they are.)

Sometimes I have a hard time remembering this.

Just food for thought.

When I was a teenager, and would say to my dad, "You're SO weird!" He would say, "Well, name five people who aren't." I never could. We're all weird in our own unique ways.

couldn't have been said better!

there are some people i really don't like. but given long enough, i always end up finding a part of them i like. so there you go... i need to remember that. we're all flawed. and all perfect.

and thanks for your gorgeous comment, it means so much.

I only ever see the awesome in people. Really. It's a gift I've cultivated for a long time. I am consistently impressed and amazed by almost everyone I see.

So true. Sometimes Deborah likes to tell me, "Even Brad Pitt" has to go to the bathroom, and it makes me laugh every time. It's her way of saying that everyone is average and awkward sometimes. :)
