There is nothing wrong with ordinary

Do you feel it? The pressure to do epic shiz and not settle? Or perhaps you feel the fear or shame associated with living a so called 'ordinary life'?

We are constantly bombarded with glamorous instagram feeds of people living incredible, meaningful and mind blowing lives - encouraging us to do the same. I know that I am no different. I definitely get caught up encouraging people to live an epic life and stop living 'small'.

But I want to tell you that there is absolutely nothing wrong with 'ordinary'.  

Living a life of purpose and meaning doesn't have to be grandiose AND experiencing fulfilment, passion and any other juicy feeling is not just for a 'special' few. It is totally available to you!

You can evoke these feelings no matter what you are doing with your life as long as you feel that your choices in life are aligned with your truth and are fuelled by love.

If you are having a hard time seeing the beauty or value in your life take some time to reflect daily on what you are grateful for. Try and find a different thing each day. You will be amazed how easy it is to miss the beauty in your own 'ordinary' life when you are too busy focusing on someone else's. Bring your focus back and also remember that what you see or believe about another's fabulous life is not the whole truth. We are all human and have our own unique personal challenges that we encounter.
