For one brief second in history I didn’t follow my heart… 🙂
That does sound crazy… 🙂
Don’t you just hate it when that happens… 🙂
Walked beside the ocean in Miami Beach by myself at midnight. It was peaceful and calm and amazing. I would do it again.
Do it! It really sounds amazing 🙂
It’s a difficult one. Maybe wondering into Lithuanian woods with no map and slippery mud…
I hope it wasn’t at night.
I’d need to know if you meant crazy “fun” or crazy “mentally unhealthy”. Worlds of difference there.
How about mentioning both?
Wow – the mentally unhealthy would have to be attempts at self harm. Certainly I did my kids no favors bu not following through with self care, or medication or therapy.
Fun. Might be the tandem jump from an airplane, if you’re into thrills. Going to Vegas? That is a crazy place to people watch.
What do you think it was the main reason you didn’t follow through with self care, or medication or therapy?
Some of it was being told that it was all imagination or attention seeking. Some of it was finances at various times. A tremendous amount of shame at needing help. “We rise above it” is a family motto that is destructive as hell.
Perhaps bungie jumped? I’ve skydived, and honestly it wasn’t scary — too high up to register, perhaps.
But bungie jumping was awful. NEVER AGAIN!
Wow! I don’t know if I could do that especially because I have a fear of heights.
Stood on a table in a dining hall and made a speech that started with, “Friends, Romans, Countrymen – lend me your ears…” This was during Girls Camp and in response to pranks played on my friends and I. Enough was enough!!! I delivered the speech of a lifetime.
That is awesome!!!
That sounds brave of you 😀
I was fearless then!
I read your question and chuckled, then leaned back in the chair. And in front of me was a library card file of crazy to choose from. I thought for a few minutes, went through several drawers of examples and kept saying to myself nah. I was overwhelmed with choices. What I will say is I’m glad I did a lot of things, that some might view as crazy. I’m glad I survived.
It’s amazing if you had many choices. You truly live your life as much as possible. Were those situations meant to be crazy or that’s how they turned out to be?
A little of both. Some spontaneous and some planned. Funny how I have thought about this question and all its different variations. I might have to do a post about it.
I have quite a long list, but I would say that the craziest was to quit my job, my apartment, my friends, the city I have been living in for seven years and even my Country when I was 29 to pack everything, move abroad and start life from zero to be with someone I had met only a few months before and with complicated circumstances. My mum, at least, would totally agree this was the craziest of them all 🙂
It requires lots of courage to do that. Sometimes we just need to go for it despite the apparent difficulties or other’s opinions.
Yet to do
I like your approach 🙂
I was at the top of my career, and I decided to quit, move to another city, and stay at home and leave it all behind. It was crazy and there are days I regret it, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.
What made you do this?
I have two daughters. One was 5 at the time, and I was pregnant with the other. My husband had gotten a job in another city, and we realized we could not fit in to that house anymore with a baby on the way. I wanted to be at home and raise our children. That was the most important thing in the whole world to me. Then my husband and I decided to just bite the bullet and move to the city where his new job was (instead of him driving over an hour every day back and forth). I miss being a nurse, but I wouldn’t change being an at home mom for anything. It was so crazy for me to do that, but it was the best choice for our daughters. 🙂
Walked in the pitch black behind a nightclub alone
Would you do that again?
