As much as there is a pressure to conform, there is also, on the opposite side of the spectrum, an overwhelming need to be original, to be extraordinary, to be unforgettable. Of course, we can be. But sometimes when we don’t live up to our high expectations, we view ourselves as failures, as ordinary, and as not being good enough. But that is far from the truth. Whether we are testing the limits of possibility or reaching for a dream held by so many others, whether we are being ‘extraordinary’ or ‘ordinary’, it doesn’t matter, as long as we are being ourselves. It can be challenging, but as long as we are sticking to our own principles and following our own passions, our life will be as abundant as anybody else’s, however much more extraordinary their’s seems. Be you.
