~Extraordinary~ (Please Read!)

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 1, 2015, 2:35 PM
:heart: Dedicated to all of you feeling insignificant, and having a bad day out there :heart:


-X-


:heart: You wanted to be extraordinary :heart:

With a mind filled with intelligence able to comprehend even the most complicated problems
Wrists able the twist and create the beauty you saw within an object with a pencil
Fingers with the ability to type the wondrous details of love and adoration
Feet able to run free without a single ounce on exhaustion entering its bloodstream
Countenance of a model in the magazines
Imagination of a child

:heart: You wanted to be extraordinary :heart:

To have people smile upwards towards where you stood on a pedestal
To feel loved and cherish by one or few or all
To feel as if many hands helped you lift the weight of the world on your shoulders
You wanted people to gaze at you as if you were the hero saving the citizens in a film
You wanted to feel as if you were important

:heart: You wanted to be extraordinary :heart:

To have an astounding talent that blew the minds of many away
To have something special about yourself that made you unique and different from the rest
You didn't want to feel as if you had obtained what only the average had done
You wanted people to glance and immediately know your name

:heart: You wanted to be extraordinary :heart:
:heart: Yet you already were :heart:


It was in the way you smiled towards you family and friends, all the happiness gathered in you eyes
It was in the simple gesture of a wave to a stranger with the expression of sorrow
It was in the soft and polite "Thank You" to the cashier or waiter
It could have even been saying "Good Morning" to the bus driver who drove all the immature children to school
It may have even been acing that test you thought you were going to fail
Maybe it was being proud of that science project
Perhaps feeling that rush of adrenaline when you're playing that sport you think you're not good at.

:heart: Because Even The Simplest Thing Can Be Extraordinary :heart:

[Because Even The Simplest Thing Can Be Extraordinary] - - - Completely true, and very well said. 

But. . . 

What about those of us for whom the simplest things aren't enough?

I don't have to fight to make the simplest things extraordinary.

I don't have to beat back the darkness of my doubts and weaknesses with a sword of fragile hopes to do the simple things.

I don't have to worry about what others will think when I do the simple things; doing the simple things is its own pleasure. 

But don't call me ungrateful.

Think about what it means to pour yourself into something—heart and soul—in the only way you know how, only to come up short when you finally measure yourself against your dreams.

Think about what it means to struggle to fill that great white blank with everything you've got, only to come away a waste and a fool, with ten-thousand new things that you should have known or done before, but, ignorant, you just passed on by—and it's too late to turn back.

Think about what it means to race barefooted down a spike-paved road, unable to laugh at how far you've gone or revel in the joy of the finish line until a crowd finally comes up to tell you you made it.

And think about what it means to see the other guy holding the trophy high above his head, and you can't tell how much blood is on his feet are, so you just have to keep on running down those spikes, slicing yourself into a pulp, because there's dark and death running right behind you and you cry and tremble knowing that they'll get you if you stop for so much as a breath.

People say that the value of a life lies in what its owner makes of it. And yes, that's true.

But I'm not Mr. Bailey. My family's inside me. And I have to do right by them—but that's not simple in the slightest.

I need to share them with the world, before their air runs out.

So, if I am what I do, then what am I if I can't get anyone to want to listen?

- - - - 

I've been in a bad mood as of late; I guess I just felt like free-versing my response. Make of it what you will. No offense meant toward Greystream—who did a wonderful job with this entry. I'm just feeling crappy.

Meh.
