{monday's mantra}

Side note: This is my very first post written and posted on my brand new MacBook Pro! I've always been a PC person, so it's going to take some getting used to. But I just have to say that it feels damn good to have gotten myself a new computer from the money that I've earned from my company. It really feels good. And now, onto our regularly scheduled post...

Here we are, Sunday night again. It's going to be a busy week, of course, and I struggled with what I wanted my mantra to be. And then it came to me.


I love the word extraordinary. I don't want to be ordinary, in anything I do. I want to be extraordinary in everything, which I think is possible. I think that as long as you have passion and a love of what you do, you're extraordinary, regardless of how well you do it. So do everything with passion and intention. It will mean that much more in the end.

I LOVE that word. it's really visceral for me - I misspelled it in my college application (don't worry, I caught it and fixed it!) but whenever I see/read/hear/say that word it brings me back to that time of amazing possibilities - of extraordinary chances! thank you for this :)

Congrats on the Mac! I'm jealous! My husband has a Mac, and I have a PC. :/

You're so welcome! I'm glad I could remind you of that time, since we all still have unlimited and amazing possibilities :)

I know the real definition, but whenever I see "extra ordinary", I always think "as ordinary as possible!" Words are so funny.

Regardless, it's a good mantra!

i love this! reminds me of what my mom used to tell me - there's nothing special about being average.

Joelle :: Something Charming said...

Your mom is a smart lady ;) There definitely is nothing special about being average!
