live extraordinarily

(via: reblog)

“I used to dream about escaping my ordinary life, but my life was never ordinary. I had simply failed to notice how extraordinary it was.” Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children

I just finished reading this book. Like literally five minutes ago. The second I read this line–which is on the second to last page–I immediately knew I wanted to share it. 

True, perhaps I can’t hold a ball of blue fire in my hands or levitate or heave boulders over my head (like some “peculiar children” can), but I believe it is quite possible to live a life of quiet extraordinary….and with maybe just a little bit of peculiar.
