Everybody wants to be normal, but few people are aware of how costly a choice that is.
It means never taking a risk, it means never sticking your neck out, it mean never embracing a radically new idea.
And so instead of living an incredible life, you’re stuck with nine-to-five, shopping malls and Reality TV. Lucky you.
Agreed. One of the things that I have been “learning” over the last couple of years is how if I move away from normal I create more space for what I want, but it feels very risky and very scary.
