You Are Crazy!

Yep, I have been told I am crazy and unrealistic. Why? Because my immediate plans include becoming prepared for anything. Because I am going to go back to school for a degree not many have heard of, apparently. The degree is Horticultural Therapy. Because if I have to work outside the home I want a job that has flexible scheduling and pays well. Because I intend to run a crowd source campaign to raise money for some improvements and supplies to start a creative cottage business. I am crazy because I want to live sustainably and be self-reliant.  And writing, getting published and all that doesn’t happen to too many people so don’t count on that panning out. The only thing this person is thankful for is that I stopped the whole crazy idea of homeschooling. Hate to tell said person but if the kids really wanted to go back to homeschooling I would do it in a heart beat.

Now with all that being said rest assured that I fully intend to continue with my plans, if nothing else this has made me more determined. I think I am being realistic in believing in myself and wanting to live out my dreams. Life is way too short to stay on the side lines. I intend to arrive at the finish line margarita in hand shouting, damn what a ride!

How do you deal with naysayers and/or those who think you have lost your mind? I mean why go to all the trouble of growing your own food when you can go to the grocery store?


Light, Love and Peace!

  1. At some point in my life I realized that people wanted me to conform to their reality because it somehow justified their actions. Their reality left me feeling unhappy and lost. So I set out to create my own world … and friends & family thought I was crazy. But you know what … they are also envious of my life … of how I choose my own direction and how it makes me happy. More than once I’ve been told that they “wish they were brave enough” to do something I’m doing. Once I realized that calling me crazy was more a defense mechanism on their part, it made me see things differently. I’ve never particularly cared if others like my path or not but now I can have sympathy for them because they aren’t really telling me that I’m crazy … they are saying that their life is lacking.


    • I realize that they are simply jealous. The hard part was it came from someone whom I thought would be a lot more supportive than they have been. Oh well, when I am sitting cozy, warm and well fed, with almost no bills (in the near future) we will see how they feel. 🙂 I am going to persevere and continue. Thanks for coming on the journey with me!
