“Make Average Great….and All your dreams will come true!”
I have been wrapping my brain around this statement for a couple weeks now. I was watching Oprah and the episode was on celebrities going back to their first jobs. Susie Orman, the money specialist as I know her, was on and she said the above statement. I found it to be very powerful….and that I could apply it to my life….heck….that is my life.
I am average….I am the definition of average. Yet…….I love my life…..I love being Average! I have an average home….that I believe is great. My husband and I have average cars….that work great. I have average clothes that do their job...well great….We eat at average restaurants….We have average jobs….we are average.
I have everything I need! Why does society make me feel that my Average is not enough? Why does society make me feel that I need a bigger house, a newer car, the coolest new gadget, or tons of toys for my baby? Why does society bear down on me and make me feel like my Average is not good enough? Why do I let society affect me so much?
Don’t get me wrong….there are so many things I want for my family and me. So many things I have to be patient for and work for. But I am making what we have….making our average….GREAT! And believe it or not…..every day….more and more of my dreams come true….by being just average.
I have struggled...well as long as I can remember...with being comfortable with my finances. I have never been without...but I also have never been the one who never had to worry. I have dedicated myself to living within my means....SO HARD sometimes. But, society, I feel, and by society meaning sometimes peers, sometimes family, sometimes people at church or in a social group, adds pressure. Not always on purpose, but I am sure you know what I am saying. Why do I let this affect me so often?
BIG goal of mine is to not let it! To love my AVERAGE, beautiful life. To be grateful for the things I have each and every day....not the things I can't have. To love what I am blessed with and be happy for others and their blessings. To be comfortable with my financial situation and realize that we are beyond blessed!
To realize that being Average is making all my dreams come True!
