Normal?

Before you took an action, how many times did you ask yourself “Is this normal?”?

When you made a mistake, how many times did you ask yourself “Am I normal?”?

When you didn’t understand someone, how many times did you say to yourself “He is not normal”?

When you didn’t understand a situation, how many times did you say “This is not normal”?


Let’s start with defining “normal”.


Normal means the usual, expected, or standard state.


When something doesn’t seem usual, expected, or standard it becomes easily not-normal. And maybe and most probably only we create the “not-normal”.


Yet, how about this?

Take the action with full trust.

Own your mistake and move on.

When you don’t understand someone, ask questions.

When you don’t understand something, ask questions.


By practice, you will notice that things you didn’t know are slowly becoming your new normal, which creates space and insights to explore and create more experiences.


Yes, you are normal!
