Day 71 - Yes I'm crazy....and???

So...I have been working on my talk for July and I have been trying to get in as much practice as I possibly can.  One of the things I love doing is walking first thing in the morning and it just happens that mornings are my most productive, creative times of the day.  So, for the past few days, I had been debating practicing my talk while walking.  You can see were this is going right. Awkward!! 
"Crazy Barrie woman, walking around town, talking to herself!"
Well, you know what?  This morning I decided, I don't care....I feel like practicing my talk while taking my morning walk and that is exactly what I am going to do.  So what if people see me talking to myself as a walk by their house.  And people did.  It was kinda funny.  At one point, I looked up and some woman was staring at me with this weird look on her face.  I just laughed and kept on going.  What exactly is the problem with talking to ourselves anyway.  Come on, admit it!  You do it all the time right?  We just normally avoid doing it in front of other people. 
So, if you see me walking around Barrie talking to worries.
One, I'm just giving everyone the permission to follow their natural urge to talk to themselves when they want to.
And two, I'm not crazy, I'm productive and creative!
That's my story...and I'm sticking to it.
Create an awesome day!


  1. I love your story. I know exactly what you mean. I talk to myself all the time. The scary part is I'm starting to answer back. My grown up children think it's scary. I just tell them it'll be them one day. My husband thinks it's my normal self, because he does it also. lol
    I've been talking to my dog to. Is that crazy? I get some pretty strange looks.
    I don't think any of it is crazy, because we all do it. My neighbours probably think I'm crazy to. I just smile and wave. It's all good. Sense of humour is important to don't you think?
    Keep on walking and talking.
