Much Madness is Divinest Sense
Much Madness is divinest Sense —
To a discerning Eye —
Much Sense — the starkest Madness —
’Tis the Majority
In this, as All, prevail —
Assent — and you are sane —
Demur — you’re straightway dangerous —
And handled with a Chain —
BY EMILY DICKINSON
We all have to be a little crazy to live in the world we live in today. I am sure our ancestors felt the same way when they lived through there times. The fact is life is crazy for everyone, there are things that happen that make us laugh and make us cry. In the world of reality TV, we get a bird’s eye view of just how strange and different some people are. It does not make their way any more crazy than the things that we do in our own lives. Just different.
Every one of us has quirks, those little habits that drive our partner or spouse’s nuts, the little rituals we each do that make perfect sense to ourselves. There is nothing wrong with being different; it is what makes life interesting. So if you believe you talk to spirits, or you think the world is going to be hit by a meteor, or have to have everything on the counter just so. You may be just a little bit crazy but that is ok.
My grandma used to say, “You can’t change ignorance you just have to learn to laugh about it.” She was right, and her advice helped me realize that I could not change what people would think or say about me, I just had to live my own life.
I have, and do finding the humor in many things in our daily lives and that’s what I am saying. Sometimes it gets me in trouble but I really don't mind.
Sit back, relax, and find the humor in the moment. It makes the ride much more fun.
