Why do we all try so hard to be normal? In the US, “normal” is broke, tired, and depressed.
We were each made with a unique purpose, but we’re never going to figure that out by following someone else’s road map, at least not until realizing we’ve arrived at the wrong destination… We gauge our success, or lack, based on other people’s definitions. What if their definitions are old and tired? What if their definitions were never meant to be ours in the first place?
We look at people who “have it all” and are jealous, even bitter, about their success when we look at our own lives and think there is no hope for us. So we resign ourselves to just “get by” until “someday” when all our stars finally align and we can really start living. Or even worse, we just start planning for retirement…
That’s a tentative intro for our first book which we’re currently writing together, and describes a problem common to human nature, a problem we tackle a lot within our blog. It’s the struggle of knowing deep down that we were made for great things, but A. not knowing what that is, B. feeling hopeless about ever being or doing what we know we could be and do, because C. we let our experiences, circumstances, and other bitter people shape our understanding of ourselves and what is true and possible.
Come along with us as we embrace the journey of becoming who we were meant to be, explore what we’re meant to do during our brief human experience in an imperfect world, and hopefully make an uncommon life more accessible to average families like us.
