I came across a blog post the other day and one sentence in that post got a grip on me. I don’t remember the sentence right now, and it is not really that important, the importance is what I realised when I read it.
As you all know by now I am a feeling person, with a lot of emotions and you also know that I love feeling as good as possible about everything in my life. I want to feel love for everything in my life, or I am not interested in having it there. Love or leave it, one might say. I have made that in to the normality of my life. To me the normal thing is that I love my life, and so, that is what I have in my life. The thing I think of as being normal, is what I have.
And that is what that sentence was all about. What do think is normal? Is it normal that men are pigs? Is it normal that you have to work hard in a job you you don’t really like to get money to barely make ends meet? Is it normal that you don’t win the lottery week after week? Is it normal that you put on weight if you eat the wrong food? What do you honestly think is normal?
We all have so many different beliefs we pick up during our lives, from parents, friends, media and society in general. And those beliefs often set our standards and tells us how it should be. The truth is that is not have to be that way, the truth is that it is all up to you do decide what you want to be the normality in your life.
In my life it is love for everything. And since there are always areas that I would like to evolve and have grow, even though I love them just the way they are right now, I now realise that what I need to do is to make it my new normality.
When I decided that I want to love everything in my life I started to watch films that made me feel the feelings of loving my life, I read about people loving their lives and step by step my life grew on me until it became the reality and normality as it is today. This is how I will do with what I want to be normal for me. I will read about people and things that has to do with that. I will read about people writing books and making a lot of money off it. I will watch films about it, I will make it MY reality. I will make it to be the normal thing that people who write books make a lot of money selling them. Or it is normal that people who eat whatever they want, whenever they want to are slim.
My new normal reality is that whatever I want to be normal will be normal. That is my reality.
