Extraordinary

233. Extraordinary!

One of my goals for this year is to have some extraordinary times. I went to the dictionary and found the word divided this way for pronunciation: ex-traor-di-nar-y. The definition is: beyond ordinary. Yes, that’s what I’m looking for this year—some things that are beyond the ordinary.

And yet, I also think of the word divided this way: extra – ordinary. And I think of those times which are actually quite ordinary but somehow something takes them into the realm where they are also “extra” ordinary.

Thich Naht Hanh would say that all of the moments of our lives are “extra” ordinary, whether it is taking a walk slowly and feeling the earth beneath our feet, or whether it’s drinking a cup of tea and sitting not rushed but truly intent on savoring that tea, or whether it is getting up in the morning, looking out the window and seeing the sun quietly cutting through layers of mist and fog. Suddenly it is no longer ordinary. Instead it is extra – ordinary.

So I’ll see in this year to come how many of each I have.
