Today’s question comes from a Marketing Director in Atlanta, Georgia and is answered by: Ginny Kravitz, Deputy Editor.
No, you’re not crazy. Sometimes no sooner do you follow that inner prodding to dream than you are affronted with the thought: What am I crazy? It’s one of those who-do-I-think-I-am squelches that surfaces to test your courage. Don’t worry, it’s a natural feeling to have when you begin to specify what “wanting more” means for you. Some people will even tell you outright that you’re crazy for considering a new path and that you should just be grateful for what you have. While gratitude is a powerful thing, it’s also true that if you feel drawn to explore something different, honoring that call is the first imperative. So, no, you’re not crazy… in fact you’ve never been more sane.
