I am constantly fascinated by the crazy. Not just my crazy, EVERYONE’S crazy! I know you know the crazy I’m talking about, it’s that thing that happens when you choose something you know is going to have the complete opposite effect of whatever it is you’re working towards – in any area of life!
I’m going to use a really common example to explain “the crazy”. I like to feel good. I like it when my body is calm, happy, stress free. I like it when my skin is clear, I have endless amounts of energy and I feel vibrant and healthy. I know, without a shadow of a doubt, when I eat sugar or processed crappy foods, I feel the OPPOSITE of all of these things. So, why on earth would I choose to do it? The crazy!!! I actually laugh out loud when I hear other people talk out their crazy because it just sounds so goddamn ridiculous. The lengths we go to in order to justify the crazy is, well, it’s crazy!
I recognise my crazy when I procrastinate on doing things like housework, cleaning the car, writing out a schedule, keeping a “to do” list, preparing my meals…ahhh, I could go on and on. All of these things, when they’re done, help me to feel amazing, in control, on top of things, calm, happy, you get the point. All of these things, when they’re not done, mean I’m in chaos, stressed and out of control. So, how and why does the crazy win out?
I believe we all have areas where the crazy takes over at different times in our life. I don’t know about you, but I think when I get the crazy in one area sorted out, it seems to pop up in another area. I’m all for challenge but, come on! Surely, at some point, you can just have it all together, even if it’s just for a little while. I honestly cannot think of one time in my life where the crazy hasn’t existed and had its wicked way in some area of my life.
Maybe there’s meant to be a little of the crazy in our life at all times, just to keep us on our toes
