The Extraordinariness of Being Ordinary and Happy
Standard! The word sends a chill down one’s spine, particularly if it’s utilized to depict an individual or his capacity. Indeed, if not a chill down the spine, surely a sensation of uselessness, of being a failure.
Failure! Toss this word at an individual and his confidence will be broken in under no time. What’s more, a failure isn’t that not quite the same as being common, right?
Anyway, what separates the common from the, all things considered, uncommon?
On the off chance that that is along these lines, I should look back to Van Gogh and his disappointment while he lived and his resulting however post mortem achievement. On the off chance that he had no capacity, why his artistic creations sell for millions each now…no, not millions, I’m grieved, but rather hundereds of millions. However, Van Gogh passed on poverty stricken – for, while he experienced nobody purchased his artistic creations.
Is it true that he was common while EB1 he lived and uncommon after he kicked the bucket?
What was it that changed after his demise?
The appropriate response, essentially, is insights.
He was both customary and unprecedented. Or on the other hand, on the off chance that you like, neither customary nor exceptional. He, just, was! Furthermore, he did what he adored doing – painting.
Things being what they are, the reason this pursuit after the uncommon at this point? I think we have all lost our brains. We have lost our psyches to other people who have lost their own personalities.
Regardless, what is this new remarkable or is this new uncommon equivalent to the bygone one – equivalent to the one in Van Gogh’s time? Is it not simply others’ discernment about what one is? Is it not tied in with allowing others to pass judgment on one’s worth, appropriately or wrongly?
In the event that I am customary, it is thus, since others believe me to be conventional and in the event that I am remarkable that is likewise on the grounds that others trust it to be so. It doesn’t imply that I am genuinely conventional or remarkable.
Why, at that point, would it be a good idea for me to hold myself, my bliss, my being, prisoner to others’ opinion?
Is it insufficient that I am glad being what I am? Others may accept what they need however my satisfaction won’t be left on the racks of their pawn-businesses.
