I Did Something Crazy Today

The title of this post may lead you to think that I’ve done something extremely crazy or insane, and I feel like for me, what I’ve done is a bit crazy.

So if you feel like hearing about my day sprinkled with a little bit of crazy, please, feel free to continue reading. Then I’ll make sure to stop my rambling and actually get on with it 😛

It all started with my fantastic idea (read: sarcasm)to go for a morning run. As in a 6 am run. Outside. In the morning. What a stupid idea, but oh well… I’d made up my mind so now I had to do it. So I set my alarm to 5.45 am, so I could be ready to run at around 6 am. (I have to be at school at 8 am and I had to shower too, so I made sure I had plenty of time). I actually ran, only about 1 mile or something, but I was perfectly cool with that. It was a great run too. The sun was about to rise and it was just nice outside. I think I actually enjoyed it enough that I’ll start doing it more often! Something I’d never thought I’d hear myself say: “It’s great to get up a buttwipe o’ clock, so you can go exercising”. (Maybe I didn’t exactly use those words but yes, I’ve said it).

But that wasn’t the only crazy thing I did. Every Tuesday I go to a writers class for 2 hours, so I did so again today. I felt extremely uncomfortable almost the entire time, and I could just feel my face heat up and just stay that way. It was worse than usual, but I guess it was just the heat that triggered me. (I have like a bit of a social issue, so I usually feel uncomfortable in large crowds or in rooms with people I don’t really know, and heat is mostly the thing that makes me a bit panicky).

I got so bad that I seriously thought about just saying that I had to leave earlier, and then go 45 min before it ended. I didn’t though, and I’m glad I didn’t. When we ended I was so ready to just get out of there. Instead I ended up asking the girl next to me what she was reading, because I thought I recognized the cover of the book. We had a tiny conversation and it actually felt great.

When I was waiting at the train station for the train to arrive, two girls from the class, the one with the book and her friend, were on their way to the metro. They saw me standing there and then they waved at me, yelling ‘see you next time’. It might seem a bit weird but I just couldn’t stop smiling about it. They probably didn’t know that it held any significance to me, but it did.

I’m just glad that there’s some people out there in the world who are a bit more extroverted and social than me, that can push me to get out of my comfort zone.

That was my day. I hope you had a great one too! Let me know what kind of crazy shit you’ve done today.

  2. I think you did have an amazing day. It’s the little things in life that make a BIG difference. Winston Churchill was asked one about the secret of his long lasting marriage and he said ”Well it’s easy my wife is in charge of all the small decisions in our lives and I am in charge of the big decisions” . Still not convinced the reporter asked what big decisions he had to take regarding his marriage. He replied with a huge smile ”Well, fortunately there never were any big decisions to make!!”….. What I mean is all these little seeds we plant, some grow, some don’t… The important thing is to plant some and take care of the ones who are likely to grow up! It means a lot to me what you just said. I used to be a heroin addict. When I got back from 2 years in Nicaragua, sober, it was very hard for me to get back to the little things… You see I went all the way to Nicaragua and do humanitarian help in order to feel I could get rid of my addiction. I had to do something BIG!!! HAHAHA!!! My God!! The hardest part was to learn to live an ordinary everyday life… I had nothing to do when I came back home… I was soooo bored… It was imperative that I get to get busy.. So I went swimming. I live in Canada so it was winter. I picked up a indoor pool, checked out the schedule and arrived there… There were these guys and girls doing some really fast swimming back and forth, obviously in a much better shape than I was, and there were these old people doing nothing in the water, just swimming a little here and there… I wasn’t part of neither group… So I decided to do some swimming like the ”expert” ones but at my own speed, which was very slow… But it felt good. So I went back, again and again 2 times a week, until I realised I had become a pretty good swimmer and I was in pretty good shape now!! So I started to bring other people who had just started doing NA meetings, some stayed and we became swimming buddies, then good friends and then I felt REALLY good… So you see… I’m sorry I took so much space here but I wanted you to know that that day you just described might be the beginning of something really important. You should be very very proud of you. I know you are but I wanted to tell you that, even if I don’t know you at all, I am too!! I hope you get what you are aiming for and that most importantly you have fun doing it!! Peace Out!
