Normal…where is that again?

I have such a strong urge to want life to be normal. For a day to be normal. But, what is ‘normal?’ Who gets to define that? I may want to define it, but in so doing, I could mess up my journey. I might create a beautiful straight, unobstructed path. I guess that could be okay. But I would miss all the adventure and awe of discovering what is around the corner. Of becoming who I am to become.

From time to time, we get to share a part of someone else’s journey. He/she will be the one to trek the entire path, but sometimes we get to walk awhile with them.

Such is my life right now. Walking along with someone I love. Right now, the path is rather dark and hard to see. We are inching along and moving forward. As I try to hold the torch to add illumination, I am inspired by what I see. A life full of courage and determination. A person who does not worry and fret, but who surges on with hope.

One thought on “Normal…where is that again?

  1. My ‘normal’ may not be your ‘normal’ and that is the beauty of this life of ours. We contain so many emotions it seems that we rob ourselves of feeling them all if we strive to be ‘normal’. How can we feel the utter feeling of joy if we haven’t felt the depths of grief or sorrow. Give me the myriad emotions with all their pros and cons to a life that is ‘normal’. A great piece, succinct and thought-provoking.
