The great mundane

When we hear ‘mundane’, we think it’s a bad thing.

An adjective meaning ordinary… unimaginative.

But why is that necessarily a bad thing?

When we love a way of working or a way of life, it becomes ordinary…to us. We continue to do things that way, appreciating all of its nuances.

We imagined that way of doing things…once. And then we made it happen. Imagination is past-tense here. We’ve achieved the way of things that we wanted.

Mundane can be an achievement.

Something to be proud of.

Something to build on top of.

The foundation of something wonderful.
