"My darling girl, when are you going to realize that being normal is not necessarily a virtue?

It rather denotes a lack of courage."

Aunt Frances, Practical Magic

"Be yourself, everyone else is already taken."  Oscar Wilde

Your work, here on earth, is to just be who you really are, whether you think you are normal or otherwise. There is a reason why you are as you are, you have an assignment that only you can complete. Therefore, trying to hide your real self will make things more challenging than necessary.

Many people find it hard to be authentic, they conceal the parts of themselves that they don't feel live up to what is expected. This is one of the main lessons of life.... You don't have to live up to anyone's expectations. You are a free agent in the Universe, you are who you are, and all that is required is for you to honour and love yourself.

If you happen to be one of the lucky ones that are on the lower end of the 'normal' scale, you are way ahead of the game. You probably have been fighting your whole life to be able to step out of 'normal', and as an adult, you can finally own it. You see things differently which allows you to be more open to new ideas and uncommon ways of navigating your life.

It takes courage to be yourself, to be different, and authentic. Good fortune on your journey, and never forget, it's the journey, not the destination.
