call me crazy

9 09 2008

i don’t know who wrote this, but i came across it earlier this year and find myself reading it often.  it inspires me. it fuels me. it provokes me to be greater, push harder, dig deeper and go farther. it makes me laugh when i hear ‘no’ and walk on top of what other people might swim through. it ignites my faith. it spurs me on toward what i’m here for.

i’m so crazy!

i’m blessed to have some equally or even more crazy folks in my life who also drive my desire to be even crazier…  here’s to all you crazies out there!

here’s to the crazy ones.
the misfits. the rebels. the trouble makers.
the round pegs in square holes.
the ones who see things differently.
they’re not fond of rules.
and they have no respect for the status quo.
you can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.
about the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
because they change things.
they invent.
they imagine.
they heal.
they explore.
they create.
they inspire.
they push the human race forward.
maybe they have to be crazy.
how else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?
or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written?
or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
we make tools for these kinds of people.
while some see them as the crazy ones,
we see genius.
because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.


change is beautiful

this video is actually part of a campaign by the credit unions of washington called change is beautiful.  i’m not endorsing their company or campaign, but i am saying that i love this video and really resonated in me.  the very ideas and concepts that will revolutionize the world around us tomorrow are bouncing around inside some people today.  are you one of them?  change is indeed beautiful.  props to b for posting this.
