I used to always want an exciting life full of adventure, but as I’ve progressed through my recovery, the more I’ve started to want a calm and peaceful life. Of course everyone wants some adventure at some point in his or her life, but there is no reason to be ashamed of wanting a calm life most of the time. I feel like after everything I’ve been through in my life, all of the craziness and abnormality of it, I would kill to be normal. I would kill to just get married, have a normal job, have a few kids, watch them grow, retire and travel and grow old with my husband. I would kill to live the simplest life imaginable because I know what it’s like to be the worst kind of unique and different. Sometimes I think I’ve had enough action to last my whole life. At other times, I think I would get tired of being normal and eventually want something more. But these are just my thoughts on the subject based on my life experience, it doesn’t have to be your opinion, too. That’s what’s so cool about individuality; we all get to be whatever we want and lead whatever kind of life we want. If you want to be adventurous; if you want to be normal; if you want to be extraordinary…then just…be. 💜
