Latest from the Odyssey: “Cheers to the Ordinary”

 

It seems like everywhere we look there’s someone who’s traveling and having all these grand adventures. We see our friends doing “amazing” missionary work, going on trips every few months, and being their own boss. We look at our 40 hours a week office job and wonder why we settled for ordinary. But did you?

Here’s the secret: every last one of us is living an ordinary life.

Did I just blow your mind?

Think about it, even Justin Beiber with all the glamour his life entails still does the same things every human does: he eats, he sleeps, he uses the bathroom. Your friend on that amazing mission trip is doing things you could be doing right at home: spending time with people, serving, cooking, praying.

What makes us think that some people are living so extraordinarily and the rest of us not? Perspective.
