Chapter 8, Page 7, Book 20

We all have the extraordinary coded within us, waiting to be released.

Jean Houston

August 7th - you are extra ordinary!

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.

Jimmy Johnson

It seems there are stories on the news just about every day about ordinary people doing extraordinary things.  They go the extra mile for people around them. It doesnt take a lot to be extraordinary. All it takes is doing a little extra for those in need.

We live in extraordinary times, so we must think of extraordinary ways to overcome them.  We have had to face problems weve never faced before.  Who knew toilet paper would ever become so important.  We cant settle for ordinary any more.  

Parents have had to become teachers to their children.  Even those ordinary ones without a degree.  Weve all become more aware of the things we have and to be ever aware of the extraordinary world around us.  We can’t take anything for granted. 

Ordinary people believe only in the possible.  Extraordinary people visualize not what is possible or probable, but rather what is impossible.  And by visualizing the impossible they begin to see it as possible.

We are definitely living in extraordinary times. The thing that comes to mind that is a very small thing people can do - put on the mask when they're around others.

These are certainly unique times we are living in! We all need to do what we can to extraordinarily live through them!

Indeed! Extraordinary times call for extraordinary solutions. Smiling at your reference to toilet paper, but ya. That's a great example of ordinary folks having to think outside the box. Even the availability and amazing variety of face masks which now exist -- when not that long ago I was a bit concerned we might not find anything. American ingenuity!

We do rise by lifting others. These are definitely extraordinary times. And lifting does do wonders for the lifter. Catching up...
