Are You Normal?

Well hello,

Your long lost friend is back and has a sack full of new and exciting posts, ideas and news. But all in good time!

Today I would like to ask you a very important question - do you consider yourself normal?

Okay, right now you are probably thinking:"Is she normal?". To answer your question:"Absolutely!". You already know that there is a twist, so please let me explain.

Lately there has been a lot of talk in my circle about people being normal or abnormal. I also discovered that it is not only my circle that questions "normality", most of the population does (at least that what it looks like to me). And so, came the idea for this post.

Let's discuss, shall we. I am sure all of us (yes, I am guilty as well) used the following expressions few times in our lives:

- This is not normal!
- She/he is not normal!
- Why can't you be normal?

But have you ever asked yourself - what is normal? Have you ever really thought about it? Well I did and for awhile now.

My life has been very interesting due to many challenges. And looking back I came to conclusion that the challenges were created  due to my desire to be "NORMAL". You might say:"What's wrong with that?". The answer is absolutely nothing. But here is the trick, it was not my "NORMAL".

After living on beautiful plant Earth for many years my conclusion is that everyone has their own
"NORMAL". It is your own, unique and beautiful and it is important to embrace it!

So why do we still use term - this is not normal? Very simple! We live in a society that established "NORMAL" for us all. Don't get me wrong, it is important. We need laws, policies, economic standards, business practices, and such. Otherwise, we will live in anarchy.

But don't forget that without your "NORMAL" society will not be able to develop. Think about all of the discoveries over the years, think about all of the great novels that were written over many centuries, think about all of the beautiful pieces of art that has been created
since the beginning of time. Most of the people that made these discoveries or created these masterpieces were not the "NORM". Some were outcasts and considered out of their mind (Michael
Jackson or Vincent Van Gogh anyone?).

What I am trying to say is that although we are expected to live a certain "NORMAL" life, do not forget the "NORMAL" you. You are here for a reason and you are a significant part of the societal development. And in my opinion as long as it does not endanger people around you, you are totally and completely "NORMAL"! And the next time you are about to say:"That's not normal!", please stop and think. You might be offending someone or someone's action; put yourself in that situation.

In conclusions, I would love to encourage you to celebrate yourself and love the "NORMAL" you!

Please let me know your thoughts in regards to this subject! In the meantime have a fantastic day and don't forget

Be Active! Be Involved! Be a Current Woman!
