tumblrbot asked: WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER WHEN YOU ARE IN A BAD MOOD?
laughter; I feel that it is something that can make even the most uptight-strungout person feel better.
The day was the 15th of July, 2013 (when I physically wrote this).
It is a Monday here in sunny Columbus, Ohio and for me today is a normal day. I had class, got a haircut, and studied. Nothing about this day is extraordinary to me, nothing seems too exciting or too dull. To me this day has the typical feeling of normal-ness, a day consisting of ordinary moments. But that would mean this is a moment, and we speak of moments as if they were of importance and meaning. While the action of writing this maybe a moment importance, nothing else about this day is important. This day, this week, and even this month are as typical as typical can be. So what can one do about this typical normal-ness and lack of the extraordinary plaguing life? I say that one must try to strive for something that is far far away from normal-ness. Generally speaking most people are ordinary, I am not arguing that this is good or bad I am merely stating the fact that most people choose to live within-bounds and are happy with that.
Why can’t I be like that, why can’t average satisfy me? Unparalleled, unmatched, defiant….those are adjectives I want to associate with my life. I think this feeling is deep in everyone and we either choose to ignore it or embrace it. Embracing your need to be outside the box can help you accomplish something you didn’t ever think was possible by harnessing the potential for greatness that lies within us.
But simply embracing the feeling has not changed my view of how unimportant everything this. I want something that hasn’t even been imagined, something that gives you a sensation of unquestionable awe. Finding anything remotely close to that sensation when everything seems so inevitably pointless is the true challenge of overcoming the mundane.
