how to be average

Now let me be the first to tell you that I am guilty of many of these things, so I am by no means tooting my horn here.  This living average thing definitely hit close to home with me. There are many things that I keep telling myself will happen in my life or future, but guess what…our future is created in the present. With that said, I am actively fighting the “average” scenario depicted in this picture and not allowing my dreams to remain dreams. This  image can also be tied into my last post about “What Is Normal?”. I mean a lot this image fits right into what we see in movies, the media and how we’ve been brought up to expect life to be. And I’m not saying the so called “average” life that this cartoon depicts is a bad thing either. A lot of people have followed this very timeline and are great people and were more than happy doing it. The world needs dedicated hard workers in all social classes. However, I do think this illustration should cause us to step back and examine the path we are on and ask ourselves are we living life we want to be.

I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve questioned this very thing. I don’t know about you, but I’m frequently baffled by why bad things happen to good or innocent people and/or why good things seem to come to the corrupt and unkind…it’s NOT FAIR. I think it’s above our pay level or comprehension to understand such things.

Here’s a little perspective though for the next time we may think our circumstances aren’t fair. There may be times when we think we have it bad, but to an outside observer who has it worse than you at that very moment may think your bad is a blessing. In other words what is fair? It seems to quite subjective and based of what we think we should receive at any given moment and sometimes in comparison to others.
