We had a really good life in St. Louis, an amazing place to raise a family. We were living in one of the best school districts in the nation. We had a beautiful home. We even had loving neighbors and a rich community around us. My mom lived two floors down from us and could babysit at any time.
Right now, some of you might be saying, “Boy, you are stupid!”
When was the last time you said yes to do something crazy?
I’m not talking about shitting in a bag, slapping a stranger, or walking across fire, crazy. Doing those things is just wrong and not helpful. I’m talking about something that makes you really uncomfortable, palm sweaty, butterflies kicking the shit out of your stomach kind of crazy, like calling up a person you like and professing your feelings to them, running a marathon, traveling to a foreign country on a whim, moving to a new city, quitting your job to chase your dreams, crazy.
