"Nature does not deceive us. It is we who deceive ourselves."
~Jean-Jacques Rousseau ~
It's hard to be ok with being ordinary. I think we all want to excel; to be exceptional and extra-wise, strong, beautiful or whatever. We want to be special because we feel special. And we are.
And perhaps we feel that way because the mere fact of our being human and being one among many is special in its own right. And when we add to that our unique combination of gifts and talents... well, there's no question. We are ordinary and not at the same time. It's a natural state and one that we don't have to work at manufacturing.
I am extraordinary exactly as I am.
