Daily Prompt–The Normal


Is being “normal” — whatever that means to you — a good thing, or a bad thing? Neither?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us EVERYDAY.

I consider myself normal. I’m certainly not extraordinary. I’m nothing special. I must be normal.

normal1I don’t think being normal is a good thing or a bad thing. It just is. There’s not much to say about being normal. You just live life and get on with it. You try to be the best person you can be. You try to be good. I suppose that’s a good thing. But being a special or extraordinary person is also a good thing.

I don’t think you can say that being normal is necessarily good or bad. You are what you are. You are normal, or at least I am. I’m just a person who is living life, trying to get by. I live with my dogs. I love my family. I love my daughter and granddaughters. I love my work with CASA and my tutoring. I am nothing special. I am just a normal woman. I am not good or bad. I am just normal.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
