How exactly can we ever define the term ‘normal’? There isn’t a single person on this planet that I could ever describe as ‘normal’ nor would I ever wish to do so. Normal sounds so incredibly mundane, such a boring concept to be and something which I never aspire to being.
We may share connections and similarities with others but each and every one of us is unique in our appearance, personality, traits and soul. There will only ever be ‘one of you’ and ‘one of I’ which is a good thing as one of me is definitely enough for this World!
This World would be such a boring place to exist if we were all to look the same, to sound the same, to act the same, to offer the same, to be the same. Much like pebbles on a beach, we coexist yet each of us are different shapes, shades, textures, colours, sizes and weight. Some of us may have dimples, markings, scratches or even be slightly cracked over time…
There is no normal, nothing is really set in stone. So let’s be pebbles, lets coexist with our differences and be sure to create ripples as we are thrown into the water.
“So I’ll take you to the beach
And walk along the sand
And I’ll make you a heart pendant
With a pebble held in my hand
And I’ll carve it like a necklace
So the heart falls where your chest is
And now a piece of me is a piece of the beach
And it falls just where it needs to be
And rests peacefully
So you just need to breathe
To feel my heart against yours now, against yours now”
Ed Sheeran – Wake Me Up
