Monday Quote: Normality Is A Paved Road

Post image for Monday Quote: Normality Is A Paved Road

“Normality is a paved road: It’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it.” -Vincent Van Gogh

 I have always thought of “normal” as a good thing. In the context of life, people and things, it has always resonated a feeling of contentment within me. But after thinking about the above quote by Van Gogh, it made me realize that sometimes it’s good to not have so much normality surrounding you. Having elements in your life that are unique and different is like turning the pages of a good book. You don’t quite know exactly what is coming next or how things end up, but you’re eager to find out.

There is beauty in stepping outside of your comfort zone and experiencing things that aren’t in your nature.  It encourages growth within us.

I love this! It applies to so many things in life from routines to major life choices, and its something of which, as a soon to be college graduate, I need to be reminded. Pinning now!
