Hello World Out There World!
Escaping the ordinary, we try to do that everyday without even realizing it. We watch shows about other peoples lives, explore the internet, write, paint, socialize. We are afraid to be ordinary and although we may think we live ordinary lives the truth is we don’t.
Every day billions of people have billions of unique experiences. No ones life is the same. No ones life copies another.Sure, you may work at the same job or live in the same neighborhood but we all don’t have the same views or conversations.
We are not ordinary.
Still, there is the mundane events that to us appear to be ordinary. I know that I write for the sake of escaping the world because I find it boring. I escape to a world of my creation because I can have characters do things in that world that can’t be done here – like fight dragons, or use magic. But if they were real, I’m sure they would think their lives were as ordinary as mine.
As much as we want to escape the ordinary we do not see that we are not ordinary at all.
We each have skills others may not have. We each have a way of seeing the world others may not share. Our drive to be different, our drive to be extraordinary is strong in all of us… even though we don’t see how extraordinary we all already are.
