Jonas Salk. The Salk Vaccine?I know more about Kevin Federline than I do about the guy who cured Polio. I don't even know the name of the person who cured polio.
It doesn't matter. In sixty years, no one will remember Federline's name, either.
Nobody remembers anybody, except the people who actually know them.
And they all die eventually, and then one might as well not have existed.
Even the most famous person of all, Jesus, is alleged by many never to have existed, even as a historical personage, let alone a divine entity... and nobody can prove otherwise.
I strive to be myself. People compare themselves to each other too much. We've all done it. Ever have a season in your life where you were content, then met up with someone who ''seemed'' to have it all--or seemed to have a more of an appealing life schedule? All the sudden you start to quietly envy them, and your life doesn't seem as good or content. That's when you need to stop coveting what they have and keep things in perspective. Everybody's life is mapped out for them, and there can only be ONE you, so be YOU to YOUR best ability!

I do what I can to lower expectations of myself, so when I do something extraordinary, its more noteworthy. Sure, I could be a "great" husband all of the time, but then it would be expected of me, and when I have an average day, something would be wrong. But if I am average, and then do something great every once in a while, it looks pretty damn good.....
"Loyalty only matters when there's a hundred reasons not to be-" Gen. Mattis
People who feel a need to stand out from the crowd are just tedious. "Look at me! Look at me!"
Being average and fitting in and getting along is a species survival technique.

Funny thing about 'average':
It always exisst, regardless of how "good" a group is.
