February 8th - Crazy or normal...
In this moment, over and over again, it is common to hear “get back to normal” and or “this is crazy”. What is going on? So much of what was comfortable, taken for granted, knew and understood – is being challenged.
These challenges coming from fringe groups, wanting to fundamentally change the status quo for what, is the question. Answers exist but the substance behind the answers more agendas and personal bias than realities and common sense. Change for the common good, at the right pace is something to welcome. If we do not expand, we remain limited.
For myself, when I am at this similar crossroads on a personal level, questioning the normal or feeling crazy – I am in a place of self-discovery and growth. The opportunity exists for me to unpack what may be hiding and determine what it means. It’s a chance to revisit and reaffirm my values, what is meaningful and not. There could be risk taking, stretching, to consider. A little crazy to find a new (ideally better) normal for the moment at hand?
We determine crazy by defining normal, and normal by identifying crazy.
Hmmm, 2 sides of the same coin…day 198!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
