Sure, we all want to be “the best” or “remarkable” at least. Admittedly, I do, too.
However…I think there is something to be said about the unacknowledged bliss of being average.
Let’s take a look, shall we?
#1: It’s Super Easy to Get Out of Things
Us average folks are not often the center of attention. That means it’s beyond easy to leave a party early, or even skip it altogether. This, my friends, is the undiscovered promised land.
#2: If You Do Something Great, It’s Earth Shakingly Impressive
Got a promotion? Brought a project in under budget? Maybe just put effort into your hair today? You better believe you’ve got mad props coming your way.
#3: Likewise, If You Eff Up, Nobody Really Cares
Nobody likes to screw up, obviously. The great thing about being an average schmo’ is that nobody really cares! If the likes of Beyonce or Lady Gaga falls down the whole world would know about it in under five minutes, right? Can you imagine?!?!? Me? If I fall down , it’s just another Tuesday, no big whoop.
#4: No Pressure…Ever
You know that saying, “Dance like nobody’s watching”? Yeah….that’s your life when your average, and it’s fucking liberating!
