I Refuse to Accept it as Normal

I am thankful for every ounce of progress and advancement. I use all of the tools and technology I can get my hands on. And I’m grateful.

My life is much better today than it was years ago.

But do not forget that we stab ourselves with sharp metal objects, squirt some stuff under our skin, and bleed on things to see if we guessed the amount right.

This is what passes for normal in our lives. IT IS NOT NORMAL!


Do not ever ever ever give up pushing for better. This normal is not the normal I want for the rest of my life. I am not impressed. The bar is still very low.
