Pam's Daily Wave...



Good Morning and Welcome to my Atlantic Life 😊,


A couple of days ago, as I was sitting on the beach watching the sunrise, I got to thinking about how I had felt just a few short months ago..... and I suddenly felt so relieved and thankful - I don't want to take anything for granted 💕


Sure, I've still got some work to do before I feel truly 100% me again, but that's okay - you'll note I said "feel 100% me" and not "feel normal", because I'm not "normal"....never have been, never will be (I told you Mom🤣) ! What is that even??? Isn't there an old saying about "normal" being just a setting on your dryer!



When we embrace our uniqueness and our quirks (as JB would tell you I have a lot of these!!), we open ourselves up to a world full of possibilities. We become more creative, more innovative, and more open to new experiences. We also become more accepting of others, recognizing that everyone has their own unique qualities and talents. As I've mentioned before, I strongly believe that each and every one of us has a unique talent/skill, sometimes it just takes us a little longer than others to find what our own unique gift is.


Of course, it can be scary to go against the norm and be different. We may worry about being judged or rejected, or we may struggle to find our place in the world (trust me, I know about these...). But the truth is, when we embrace our differences and celebrate what makes us unique, we often find that we attract like-minded people and opportunities.


So if you're struggling with the pressure to be "normal" remember that it's okay to be yourself. Embrace your quirks, your interests, and your passions, and know that there is no one right way to be. You are super valuable and worthy just as you are, and the world needs your unique perspective and talents.


In fact, it's often our differences that make us stand out and contribute something special to the world. When we embrace our uniqueness, we give ourselves permission to pursue our passions, explore our creativity, and live life on our own terms.


The one thing I do know is "myself" - I spent a long (long, long, long) time getting to know and understand me, Pami, the Restless Filly 😊



That I am unique and different and should celebrate that...and, there are still parts of my "crazy, little lady brain" that I don't quite understand.....may never fully understand, and that's okay, that's the beauty and magic that is our human brain.








Until Next Time...

Take care, Stay Safe and....just think, isn't it wonderful to live in a world full of people that aren't "normal"

Love and Hugs,

Pam

I love the fact that unique is normal. Everyone is unique and different, so everyone is normal. No one is more unique than anyone else, since there is no such thing as more unique. Everyone is one of a kind and that is a beautiful thing. So by embracing our own uniqueness, we are embracing our normality, and the knowledge that each person's mold is smashed as soon as they are born.

I love this because there is no such thing as a universal normal. It is defined by each person. My Mom used to ask people to define normal. And all of a sudden they couldn't. Each of us needs to be us and not what someone else defines as what they thing our version of us should look like. Carry on!

Thanks Debi - It never fails to amaze me how many people are defined by those around them and the "world" in which they live. They really need to take a step back and think.....who am I? what defines me? These are some of the things we work on in the retreats - defining your roles in life and what you want them to look like, as opposed to others defining your roles 💕

Thank you for sharing your perspective and there is no place better that Hatteras, surrounded by water, to ”get back to being you”. I have tried to change my use of the word normal and instead correct myself and use the word “healthy”. Have you read Gabor Mate’s new book “The Myth of Normalcy”? Some of what you have said so well in your blog reminds me of his message. https://drgabormate.com/book/the-myth-of-normal/

Substituting "healthy" for "normal" is a great idea and makes much more sense, especially when we consider not only our physical health, but also our mental and spiritual health. I haven't had the opportunity to read "The Myth of Normalcy", but it definitely sounds like my kind of book....now I'm off to buy it. I'll let you know how it goes 💕
