A short writing from my own experience to inspire and help others to get back up from whatever that is pulling them down, whether if it´s your normal day, to try to find the spark life can give!

Thank you so much for reading! Hoped that I could offer some kind of wise words to people.

My Ordinary Life


Every day is the same. My routines are the same. I am the same. Everything looks the same. This is how I have seen my life through my own eyes for years.

Already in kindergarten I woke up, got help to get ready, walked to school holding hands with my dad, were behind the same fences, the same walls, got picked up and went home. Same story in school. I woke up, got ready, walked to school, were behind the same walls, went home. And this continued for years. Why did everything have to be so ordinary?

I woke up as usual. Got ready. Went to school, but weirdly this time it felt different, I felt a bit tense, a bit nervous. I went to school as usual but something was different. The path looked the same but it was much longer and much more different than before, and the walls, they were not the same. Something felt out of place but I went home as usual. Three years past as I was behind those walls again. The same walls. It all became so ordinary once more.

Hey! Good morning! They all said with a smile. I responded with a cheerful “good morning!”. Was it a good morning? Maybe. Maybe not. But what I did know was that it was all routine. Every day the same. Days became weeks and weeks became months and I soon realised that one year had already past, but one unusual day became different. It was not like any other day. Not ordinary. It was a new feeling just like the one from before, but different. But not in a better way.

My ordinary life became grayer for every new day came around. The days that I've always followed but didn’t really care about had started to bother me. I wanted change. I wasn´t satisfied with how the days looked all the same, but what was I even supposed to do? "Shape them yourself",I heard a voice inside me say. But what do I even want them to be? I didn´t know. All I knew was that I wanted them to change. 

The hardest part was that I didn´t know what I was looking for. I started to despise each day that I had to go through. But then it hit me. 


You won´t meet the same people if you are open to getting to know those “unknown” people. That person may become a close friend or maybe a partner. Each day is never the same. Different things happen every day and some may be similar to the previous one but it´s never really the same.


You´ll never know what´s going to happen when you wake up. Embrace the day and make it your day. Being open-minded means that it´s easier to see and embrace change and experiences!


Instead. Shape your day. Create your life. Take control. You are the writer of your own life and you can change it if you put in some effort. Humans have since back in history been afraid of the unknown because it brings change, and that is scary because we never know what it contains. It´s easy to give in to our “safe” and comfortable life, but if you feel like you want “change”, you need to embrace the world and what it has to offer and create your own story! 

Thank you for reading.
