Battle Cry of the Crazies: For Anyone Hustling for MORE

In: Finding Your Voice

 

You aren't crazy for wanting what hasn't even occurred to them to want.

You aren't crazy for needingwhat they would only deem a luxury.

You aren't crazy for demandingthat circumstances yield to you, instead of the other way around.

And you aren't crazy for taking what it means to be human, and turning it upside down.

 

You aren't crazy for trying.

Crazy for loving.

Crazy for caring.

And you certainly aren't crazy for living.

 

You aren't crazy for your spontaneity.

Or your seemingly flighty ways.

You aren't crazy for your unkept laugh.

Or how you choose to spend your days.

 

You aren't crazy if you change your mind.

You aren't crazy if you can't decide.

You aren't crazy if you care too much.

Or if you just don't care at all.

 

You aren't crazy for exploring

You aren't crazy for desiring

You aren't crazy for being unapologetically selfish

And you aren't crazy for only wanting the wildest, most exquisite, most exhilarating, heart-throbbingly unforgettable, top shelf experience this life has to offer.

 

But let them call you crazy

Because what they call crazy

…is what they're afraid to do themselves.

And I am certain

That in this one precious life

The crazies…

…not the cowards…

win.

*Shout out to my equally crazy friend @DaveUrsillo, who inspired this post.

Forget Your Manners.

It’s polite to: …fulfill your obligations. …answer them back right away. …nod in agreement. …go with the flow. …do as you’re asked. …drink because they are. …take their call. …give your undivided attention. …fill the silence. …and always be there when they need you. Then again, no one’s ever done anything remarkable by always being […]

A Note of Support for All My Dreamers Getting Their Ideas Pooh-Poohed By Their Family, Their Friends, Their Spouses, and Their Neighbors (Fucking Neighbors, Am I Right?)

In the year 2010, friends would call and say: “So, how’s your blooooooooggggggg?” The tone was obvious: How’s your cute little imaginary friend that you think is going to save you from the real world that the rest of us have to suffer through? The year 2011, I made $103,000 with that blog—a far cry […]

The Greatest Form of Suffering of All: Inaction

Once upon a time, I was feeling stuck. If my suspicions are correct, many of you reading this might feel the same way right now. You can’t get motivated. You aren’t excited about anything. You’re tired all of the time. Lifeless. Indifferent. Apathetic. You’ve stopped caring—about yourself, about your goals, about the things you used […]

When You Feel Worthy of Being Seen…It Shows

  Let me tell you what: American women may have Victoria’s Secret, but Italian women have another secret altogether. You know it by the way she holds her head a little higher than yours, eyes on fire, gliding down the god damn sidewalk as if her and Mother Nature were tag teaming. It is not just […]
