If “normal people” call you crazy, go with it!

Have you ever packed up the family and drove halfway across the country for a week just to experience a new city? Have you ever ran a marathon just to say you have? Have you ever tried a new adventure, like rappelling, or windsurfing, or white water rafting, just because it looked cool? Has anyone ever told you that YOU are CRAZY?

Maybe it’s family, friends, or coworkers telling you that you are crazy. It doesn’t matter. Just go with it! You have the spirit of an adventurer and that is meaningful and core to who you are, so just embrace it. Enjoy when others call you “crazy” or when they question your ability to participate in a certain adventure, or they tell you “white water rafting is dangerous”, so is getting in your car and driving to the grocery store, what’s their point? It’s easy for people to sit on their couch, mute their tv and pass judgment on you for a few minutes, before getting back to watching the latest cable reality show. That is okay, it is your life and you live it your way and they will live their life their way. Get out! Have fun! Live!

The next time someone tells you that you are crazy… look at them and smile and say “I know.”
