overcoming average(?)

because it’s something the world just needs less of

title change

with one comment

the both of you that read this might notice that the title of my blog has changed. i have at least one reason for this. i think what it came down to is that i just didn’t like how the old one sounded. too long to say and whatnot. i like how this new one sounds a lot better. for one, i want to be above average. not in any kind of arrogant way, just that the rest of the world seems so content in being just like everyone else. it’s part of our nature, to accept what we know and therefore be like those we wish to be accepted by. but if i really want to be like jesus, then that means not necessarily being accepted by everyone. he was way above average, and a lot of people hated him. kinda goes hand in hand i suppose. not that i’m looking to get crucified or anything. i mean i hope that i’d have that kind of courage if it came down to it, i’m just saying.
but why the question in the parantheses? cause overcoming being just average takes effort that i’m constantly guilty of not putting forth. maybe sometime, God willing, i’ll be able to look at that question mark and think its unnecessary. other times, i’ll have to look at that question mark and ask myself that very question. so i suppose the new title is more of a challenge to me than anything else. can i be more than mediocre? can i live an above average life? can i overcome the “social norm” of just fitting in and towing the line? i need to ask myself this stuff every day.

song for the moment: “everything in its right place” by radiohead. how awesome is my wife that she puts on kid a to relax?
