How to Be Crazy

how to be crazy
It’s the beginning of a new year and most people are making lists to improve themselves so they’ll look better to others.  Take a good look at your list.  Is your list personalized to your needs?  Is it a little bit crazy?  It should be.

Being yourself and following your instincts take courage but why waste your time worrying about what others think when you can be happy right now?  Very few people actually know who we truly are.  At best a person at any given time only knows a slither, a very small slice of who you are and what you’re capable of.  Other people’s opinions reveal everything about them and absolutely nothing about you.  Make it your year.  Be crazy.

How to Be Crazy

Believe in yourself. 

You have many skills and amazing qualities.  Best of all you have the never ending capacity to learn.  Practice self love and that will build your self confidence.  No one can resist a powerful attitude.  I learned to believe in myself when I heard peoples criticism and I knew how wrong they were.

Follow your intuition.

Intuition is tapping into your unconscious or subconscious mind.  They are a resource of information.  Pay attention to your body’s signals.  Your body provides powerful information about your health, decisions and other people.

Believe in your dreams.

Indulge in daydreaming, imagination and play.  Dreams are like magic.  When you respect and nurture them they will bring you meaning and purpose.

Be courageous.

It’s not easy being courageous but one thing that has helped me is knowing people will criticize no matter what so I might as well be happy.  My happiness is more important than a fleeting opinion.

Follow through.

Don’t procrastinate.  The quicker you act the less time you have to worry or become fearful.

What crazy things are you planning on doing this year?

Here’s my short list:  Create every day.  Write and write better.  Travel and have many fun adventures.

I hope you go crazy this year.  If you need extra inspiration here’s a song to get you started.


“One person’s craziness is another person’s reality.”  Tim Burton

“Be crazy! Be brave enough to live different.”  Paulo Coelho

“What sane person could live in this world and not be crazy?”  Ursula K. Le Guin

“Live life fully while you’re here. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You’re going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don’t try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.” Anthony Robbins

“I’m not strange, weird, off, nor crazy, my reality is just different from yours.” Lewis Carroll 

“Dreams are often most profound when they seem the most crazy.” Sigmund Freud
