Nuttiness is in the eye of the beholder. Each of us has a standard for what's nutty and what's not but there are those actions that fall on the gray area between the normal and the crazy, we could not really decide if they are crazy or not. And when we are in that situation, when we could not decide whether an action is crazy or not, we get the feeling that we're nuts. That's how I feel. There was a time in my life when I really got concerned about some of my patterns of behavior that I often catch my self talking to the person staring back at me on the mirror, asking him this question : Are You Normal or Nuts?
. He usually answers, "I am normally nuts".
Being nuts is fun. I enjoy being nuts, it makes life more exciting. It's exciting as long as people around you do not notice it. But what if they begin noticing it? Things will get more exciting the moment they start noticing it. But what makes it really crazy is when they begin to show signs that you have infected them with your craziness and act as crazy as you. That's what we call collective insanity. I stumbled upon an article from Reader's Digest
about other people's quirks. I quickly compared my "odd" behaviors to those that are mentioned in the article and found out that I am not the only one in the world who is nutty. The last quirk mentioned in the article mirrors one of my own quirks in a way. I won't tell you what it is, just read the article and see if some or all of the "eccentricities" there are like yours. After reading the article face the mirror and ask that person who stares back at you this question : Are You Normal or Nuts?
Being a little nuts is normal. If your nuttiness brings a smile on other people then see it as a gift. Making people smile or laugh is something that others could not do. If you can do it your nutty way then be grateful for it.
