Ordinary people

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”
― Maya Angelou

I don’t believe that there are ordinary people because everyone can achieve greatness. I don’t believe in normal because no one is the same. If you truly believe someone is ordinary then you just don’t know them well enough. People may see me as ordinary, because I’m not pretty or popular- I’m just me. I’m quiet but trust me when you get to know me I’m so much weirder than you could imagine.

I don’t believe ordinary exists but extraordinary does. You may not see extraordinary everyday but it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist, because its there- it is silent and beautiful. The people you see everyday could have the most extraordinary personality, the biggest problems and most amazing dreams and memories to go. Problems is what makes extraordinary come true, if there were no problems then they would have nothing to arise from, nothing to learn from or to live from.

I know strong people, they have endured so much in life but still can wake up everyday and can still have a great day. These people are those who inspire me not those who turn up in the magazines or are considered heroes by the smallest most irrelevant things. People go through so much hardship, battle so much but leave all the crap and are still great. This is what I aspire to and these are the traits I would like when I’m older; strength, courage, dignity.
For those who did endure such pain probably didn’t get everything they wanted or asked for. The people who were there with you may not have been the right people- not the ones who you imagined. But are these really the wrong people?
My answer is no. People won’t always be with you but whoever wasn’t there with you didn’t deserve to be and those who were they are the right people. They are the ones who stayed when things got bad and stayed despite the flaws, these are the people that should be held onto. And in there own way they are extraordinary.

Thank you for reading 🙂

  1. I like your butterfly quote! I had the strangest thing. Exactly a week ago I found a huge butterfly on my walking path and I crouched down and put my hand in front of it. It just climbed on board without being nudged or anything. (I was freaked at first because it was heavy and in effect a large tickly bug and I have never touched one before). It came home with me and I gave it water. A day later it disappeared but I like to think it was a sign of something. I am a butterfly as described above. 🙂 Thanks for your post

    • I like that you enjoyed reading 🙂
      I thought the quote was quite fitting as when we look at a butterfly we just amaze inits beauty but not what it went through to get to that. That’s a really cute story, I like how somebody else would just walk past it but you acknowledged it. Best wishes
