Life Is A Gift Disguised As A Chore

“YOU’RE FUCKING CRAZY!” My ex girlfriend yelled as she proceeded to walk out the door.

“Thank you.” 

“Ugh… That wasn’t a compliment.” 

“It was to me.”

“Why?”

“Because the goal was never to be normal.” 

**

I see normal every day and I hate it.

40 year old worker bees taking the train to work, looking miserable. Holding their briefcases, dressed in suit and ties, with the look of disgust on their lifeless faces.

I see normal every day and I hate it.

A friend comes up with a remarkable business idea, tells me how awesome it is going to be, but never takes action because deep down he’s scared he’s going to fail.

I see normal every day and I hate it.

A person with great potential settles for a life that is safe and comfortable. Strives for something that is easy to attain because she doesn’t want to go for something out of her reach and fall flat on her face.

I see normal every day and I hate it.

An online friend of mine gives up his life long dream of becoming a NBA player, although he had the talent and drive to make it, because his high school coach cut him from the team.

I see normal every day and I hate it.

An Uncle of mine desires to venture out on his own and start a business, but doesn’t start it because some grumpy old lady from HR laughed in his face and told him he had no shot in hell.

I see normal every day and I hate it.

My cousin wakes up on Monday mornings, mad at the world because he trades his two days of happiness (the weekend) for five days of work at a job he fucking despises.

I see normal every day and I hate it.

My friend breathes, but doesn’t live. He doesn’t risk anything. He lives within his comfort zone and retreats to what is safe.

I see normal every day and I hate it.

People going to college, getting good grades, getting a good job, saving money, getting married, retiring, and then dying…without ever really doing what they wanted to do.

I see normal every day and I hate it.

Peers not going after what they want because they are too concerned with what other people think about them. What other people say and how other people view them.

I see normal every day and I hate it.

People telling themselves they’ll do the thing that has been living inside their heart since birth, “one day.”

I see normal every day and I hate it.

People living the same year 75 times and calling it a life.

I see normal every day and I hate it.

An elderly man filled with regret and sorrow on his death bed, with no one by his side, because he spent his entire life living somebody else’s life.

I see normal every day and quite frankly, you can have that shit.

I can do without it.

I’m sure you can too.

So stop putting a ceiling on your life.

Life is not supposed to be treated as a choir, but as a gift.

Life is an adventure full of uncertainty and unlimited potential.

Treat it as such.

If you never give up your seat on the mediocre train for a seat on the extraordinary train, you’ll just live a very different life.

Don’t let your doubts, worries, and fears keep you from experiencing the thrills of an abnormal and extraordinary life.

As far as my personal philosophy…

I’d rather be a massive failure than normal, any day.
