Yesterday I watched the incredibles with my children( again) and I felt so sorry for mr incredibles who obviously was struggling to fit in” as every normal citizen. He is incredibly gifted but has been forced to become just like every one else.
It made me think about my life and society in general, it also made me ask the question , who is defining ‘normal’.? We may all not be fighting super villains like the incredibles but there is definitely something that is unique to us in our abilities and gifting. we tend to just get on with life as a necessity( rightly so sometimes) but never get to explore our potential.
Sometimes we have to do this exploration outside of the activity that pays us.
What is sadder than not being able to achieve your dream is never dreaming at all.
So go on give it a go, I just did.
