Getting A Little Crazy, Well Maybe No

I was asked by a person at work if I had ever done anything crazy as a teen/younger person. My answer was no. As a teenager I didn’t have a ton of friends and my only social outlet was church youth group and school. Other than that I didn’t get invited to a lot of places to do a lot of things other than youth group stuff. So I didn’t have a lot of opportunity to do really crazy things. Thee was a time when I did manage to go out with some peeps and got thrown out of a McDonald’s because we were being too loud.

Flash forward to today and I think had I done something crazy it would have impacted my life in the present. I am who I probably was meant to be. Life, faith, spirituality, karma, the universe, whatever has a way of leading to do things that will shape your future.

From where I sit now maybe a pierced ear or perhaps something else benign. I am grateful for the time spent with family who I consider my role models and I did spend time with older folks my parents and grandparents knew. Perhaps I am a old soul with now a youthful spirit or something like that.

Everyone has done stuff in their past that makes them who they are today. Maybe I was born to be mild. As Lady Gaga sings I was born this way. Someone who is radical, open minded, eclectic and loving. Yeah, it’s crazy right?
