I’m feeling tired
Pretending to be normal
Can be exhausting
You know it’s more fun
To let your quirkiness show
And lots less tiring!
How weird can you be
And still be considered sane?
Who needs sanity?
May your smile be wide
Normal is overrated
Let craziness reign
What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever done?
Some folks thought the craziest thing I did was to quit my teaching job mid-year and marry a guy I hadn’t even seen in six months and take off for Germany with him. They said it wouldn’t last. That was nearly 58 years ago!
Can you recall a time when you did something that made others say, “You’re crazy?” How did it work out?
See ya tomorrow.

Jan, what a wonderful crazy!! 😀😀 Sometimes you just know it’s right and fantastic you’re still so happy and together 58 years later! It takes courage to truly be oneself, listen to that intuition and tuning our everyone else’s doubts! A great post reaffirming the power of SELF!
What a lovely response, Annika! Thank you so much! Yes, 🐝 yourself! Take up that courage!!
Reuniting with Jackie after 40 years apart was considered a potential disaster by some. That was 10 years ago.
God bless you for trusting your heart! Obviously, it’s very reliable <3
