You may be an average person with average abilities, but your life can be extraordinary. According to Kirsten Wreggitt:
- Most of us are average, but we fight against it everyday.
- Embrace your average life and see it as extraordinary.
- Use your gifts and talents to shift an average life to extraordinary.
- Look at your accomplishments in the context of your own life.
- Define your own success in all its originality or in all its commonness.
- Never tire of following your curiosity. An average life is extraordinary in those moments of wonder and amazement.
Parks are often overlooked and underutilized by people.
Parks are peaceful places for relaxation, and they also offer opportunities for recreation. Spending time in a park can refresh the soul and calm the nerves. Take a few minutes out of your day to walk through a park or just sit on a park bench in quite contemplation.

I like my music extremely loud. My friends and family occasionally make comments about it. They don’t understand the appeal.
I want to feel the music vibrating around me. I want my heart to beat in rhythm with the bass. I want to feel like I am a part of the sound.
When the music is loud, my mind goes into a whole new state of thought. I feel like my body and soul are melding with the music.
I like my music extremely loud, because I want to do more than hear the music. I want to experience the music.

Twenty years ago, there was a quadruple homicide in this house. The victims were teenagers and they were killed for accusing a young man of stealing a cell phone.
The guilty individual, as well as his two accomplices, were convicted and the house was eventually abandoned.
I drive by this house all the time and this week I was compelled to look inside of it. It’s hard to describe how I felt entering the house.
There was a mixture of sadness and grief, due to the senseless murders that happened here. I can’t even imagine how those poor teenagers felt as they realized their lives were coming to an end. Also, I felt angry. How can someone be so evil and callused?
I didn’t know the teenagers, but I feel for them and their families. I wonder what they would have accomplished if their lives were not taken from them.
I left the house with a heavy heart and a lot of questions.
Update: The house has been torn down since this was originally posted.
