“But, is this normal?”
Why am I so fixated by normal? What about optimal? Wouldn’t optimal be a better aim?
Is my life normal? Some of it, yes. Some of it, no. But it adds no direction to my journey to the future me.
Is my life optimal? Is my running posture optimal? Is my blog writing process optimal? Is my current way of dealing with the blows of life optimal? (It is often normal, but far from optimal).
What is optimal seems to be a much better question than what is normal.
