How normal are you?

  • If you’ve lost and re-gained the same weight multiple times, you’re normal.
  • If you often feel inadequate, you’re normal.
  • If you’re an over-thinker, you’re normal.
  • If you have a history of procrastination, you’re normal.
  • If you’ve made some monumentally poor decisions, you’re normal.
  • If you’ve trusted the wrong people, you’re normal.
  • If you’ve self-sabotaged your own success, you’re normal.
  • If you’ve spent money you don’t have on stuff you don’t need, you’re normal.
  • If you’ve regretted something fifteen minutes after you did it, you’re normal.


  • Oh how nice it would be to be abnormal. ;)

    By the way, if you are in Christ, you are abnormal. Extraordinarily so. You have all the power and provision of Heaven on your side. And all the grace you need to to move forward in it.

    1. I won't delve into how many of those apply to me *cringe* but my favorite by far is being abnormal because of being in Christ-such a worthwile abnormality-blank stares/raised eyebrows and all:)

      Love you Sister!

    2. Ah, I've always been Abby Normal and just plain right-there-with-the-rest-of-the-crowd normal. Thanks for the reminder that it's the abnormal that I should be relishing and amplifying, Rachel! :-)

      1. Or is it "nodded?" Whatever...my coffee has worn off and I'm not firing on all cylinders.

      2. Shook or nodded - at least you are exercising while reading.
