Have you ever felt incredibly lucky for the normal routines and experiences of your life?
I know it does not always come easy, but sometimes it is very natural to recognize just how awesome it is to do what you do.
I am a normal person from a normal town who has a normal job and enjoys normal activities. Yes, I could ramble on about my various overseas adventures and the new experiences I have acquired through immersing myself in another culture. There could also be paragraphs and paragraphs about the accent, the coolness, and the culture that is my husband. However, today I am thinking about just how joyous the everyday events are that make me.
I love that I don't have a desk job. I love that I have responsibility to give my best self day in and day out. It has taught me to not be selfish. It is a wonderful thing to see the "aha" moment. I also feel somewhat of a champion for unlocking the secret to understanding and relating to middle school kids. That was a gigantic hurdle in the beginning. I love that my profession constantly emphasizes further education and knowledge.
Big surprise on this one. It makes me goal-oriented. It challenges me. I love the hype, adrenaline, and exertion that it takes. It is my happy place. Yee'go
Fiction & Non Fiction alike

How many speeches do I give about this topic? I think every square inch of this place is beautiful. out of this world, impressive, majestic-the list goes on. This ordinary state has me convinced that dirt, sky, and a few cacti are truly beautiful.
The best one. It is normal to be married. When you look a little deeper you start to recognize just how much better life is when shared with someone. Things are a little more complete and purposeful when you have someone to come home to.
