Normally, when someone tells you how crazy you are, you get upset. Me? I laugh because if from the outside I sound crazy, they should try it from this side.
I am crazy, and I am 100% proud of that fact. I bounce from one idea to the next, I dabble in everything that peaks my curiosity, I ramble 90 mps all day long, I jump into things head first and more confident and driven then most. My mind doesn’t stop, its constantly wanting to do something, try something, explore something. I ALWAYS have 10 billion projects going at once and bounce back and forth. For example just to name the ones over the past few days:
Photography DIY Renovation Baking Sewing
Travel Homesteading Upcycling Antiques
Those are just the main ideas, gods help me if I try to list all the branch off ideas. By listing these that is just to show the different pools I dove into researching and studying every aspect of. My husband just laughs and rolls his eyes as I jump from this to that. He says that I can roll with anything, and that I keep life interesting.
To me that is the greatest compliment, that I am up for anything, creative, curious, and confident. I wouldn’t want a life where we couldn’t dream as big as we wanted, that we couldn’t explore what we wanted, or be anything we wanted. The most beautiful part of being UnApologetically Me, I can be who I am, crazy or not, and not feel bad about it, but rather find the beauty of it!
I hope that my daughter is just as “crazy” as I am, I hope she dreams, explores, and tries new things with the confidence and ambition that’s unmeasurable. I hope that she jumps in head first in all that peaks her heart and mind, I hope she never lets fear stop her from doing anything. I hope she is brave enough to try anything, strong enough to carry herself anywhere she wants to go, smart and creative enough to create a path all for herself. I hope she gets lost in the world on purpose, that she takes the world and makes it her own. I hope she chases the sun and takes in all the beauty it will shower her in. I hope she keeps a wild heart and sees the world through rose colored glasses not to be oblivious to reality, but to choose how she will see it.
I may never do half the things I dream of, and that’s ok. However, the knowledge and ideas I have now, will only make the dreams I do reach that much more amazing. They will help my daughter when she is old enough to venture out in the world, to be wiser and braver than myself. I am always going to encourage and support her expeditions in to life, I will walk with her if she wants me to, we can explore this world together! We have had so many adventures already, and we will continue to for as long as she wants my company.
I AM CRAZY, I AM A DREAMER, I AM UNAPOLOGETICALLY ME
