I had a conversation earlier this evening with a good friend of mine. She keeps me on my feat with her whit and honesty. She’s also pretty good and making sure I never get a big head. Tonight she reminded me that I’m average. I’m 5’9″ and 168 lbs. Both average specs. My GPA and SAT scores were both average. She was quick to explain that I’m also average looking (geez, thanks). I kept waiting for the “but,” but it never came. Her pep talk, if you could call it that, was specifically tailored to reminding me that I’m average.
Well, she’s right. I’m average across the board. That’s ok. I’m perfectly average and that’s worked a-o-k for the last 31 years. One way to look at it, is that I’m not below average. It’s like the old saying goes, to the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world…even if you’re average.
