I for one make a boat load of mistakes. But there are three little words that make big things happen in our world…faith, hope, and love. For instance, where is the love in washing dishes, doing laundry, and cooking meals every single day? These things are little and ordinary, but they are fueled by my love for my family. Where is the love in shuffling my kid to different activities that may be a difficult experience, trying out different therapies, exposing her to social groups that may not be welcoming, and working with her on challenging behaviors that may never change?
Living An Ordinary Life In Extraordinary Ways
If there are unfair circumstances or things that are challenging for her and our family, those are tough ones to love too. But love them all the things and the people , we must. I find that love has to basically fuel my every move. It has to be a part of all the things I do. I have to share it with every person I come in contact with.
And those things I mentioned in our life are all little, ordinary things. All I can do is aspire to do all these little things in my life, with the greatest love I possibly can. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful.
I will not let the world determine what is true greatness and I will stop trying to live an extraordinary life. Because I would rather do small things with great love, then big things with no love at all. I hope the latter reminds you of where your true greatness lies. And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.
Your email address will not be published. When you live an ordinary life, you take each day as it comes. With an ordinary life, simple things bring joy. Instead, you can focus on improving yourself and discover what really does make you happy. In a narcissistic life you are often exhausted, lonely or frightened.
You are more responsive to sharing both the good and bad parts of yourself. No matter who you are or what you do, there will always be someone who will do it better. And there will probably be many who do it just as well. Be grateful and learn what you can. No single one of us has exactly the same DNA or the same experiences.
What does an ordinary life mean? To me it means realizing that the ordinary is truly amazing. Some of the things that are so commonplace they happen all the time include:. An ordinary life also means not trying to be better than others but to be the best you can at being yourself.

It means understanding that everyone is struggling with something. We just need to be ourselves and share who we are in the most authentic way we can. Leslie Clary is a writer, photographer, online college instructor and editor of Our Daily Zen newsletter.
