“The conundrum of sanity and insanity is that it serves us to be some of each. It’s really only a question of degrees. You cannot possibly be 100% adjusted and live in this INSANE world. A little bit of crazy is a coping skill.”

Kelli Jae Baeli, Too Much World

Dear one,

Are things feeling off lately? Does it seem like you’re losing your mind, maybe going a little insane?

Remember that life is about balance. As I said in LLfD 100, it can’t all be sunshine, there has to be rain. It can’t all be happy, there needs to be enough sad to help you appreciate what you’ve got. Likewise, I can’t always feel like I have my shit together, otherwise I might begin to question if I ever did.

“A little bit of crazy is a coping skill” sounds humorous on the surface, but it is dead-on accurate. Be prepared to build some flexibility into how to interact with and cope with the world around you (and the people in it). You’ll be a lot better off if you don’t mind the risk of sounding or feeling a little insane once in a while.

Never forget that I love you, and that excludes no one.
