Ordinary or Extraordinary?

I’m kind of a sucker for these inspirational quotes that do the rounds on facebook, pinterest, instagram, etc.

The other day, this one grabbed my attention. (Maybe it resonated because I have a kid now, and I’d like to not make the same mistakes my parents did. I’ll make my own mistakes, for sure. But if I can break the cycle on some of theirs, at least they’ll be new ones.)


A few days after I “liked” the above, a friend shared this one, below.

And my heart gave a great big sigh.

Aiming for extraordinary can feel like a helluva lot of pressure.

Maybe perfectly ordinary is perfectly alright.
