I was invited to eat lunch with a few friends and they were bringing the food.
“Of course, I love ordinary hamburgers–I love all hamburgers!”
And it’s true. I was not lying to my friends, blowing happiness and sunshine their way to be nice.
Ask anyone who knows me well: I’ve never met a hamburger that I haven’t liked. If I had to choose between a salad and a hamburger, a hamburger will win every time.
What got me thinking was the phrase “ordinary hamburger.”
My friends and I had a great conversation over ordinary hamburgers.
I loved every minute of it because I was secretly thrilled to be invited to eat an ordinary hamburger on an ordinary day for the sake of connecting with someone else.
I am a big fan of ordinary.
If I had to choose between big, magical, once-in-a-lifetime moments and small, ordinary, yet repeatable moments, that choice is a no brainer to me. Ordinary wins every time.
Because 95% of life is ordinary. Chasing the extraordinary 5% is costing us big time.
So, please, invite someone over for an ordinary experience, like coffee or dinner, and have some fun!
