Is having some weirdness or a few odd habits normal? Yes, according to history, and this website . People love out-of-the-ordinary. Faithfulness and having strong friendships isn’t weird, but such traits displayed in a Sasquatch named Chewbacca is. I loved the performance of Peter Mayhew as this beloved character, applause.
Some unusual habits of famous people include eating live insects, air baths, and one man nearly drowning himself repeatedly. Stonewall Jackson often walked around with his hand in the air because he thought it balanced the blood in his body. Michael Jordan wore his college shorts under the Chicago Bulls uniform for good luck. Did Beethoven really count out 60 coffee beans each morning for a cup of java? Howard Hughes had a germ phobia, suffered with obsessive-compulsive disorder and in later years became completely recluse. I know it is said, “The love of money is the root of all evil.” But it’s pretty cool when you can buy a business in Vegas just to remove a flashing slipper that’s keeping you awake.
It all sounds like something Edgar Allen Poe would have written on his scroll, or an ancient scribe, after watching John the Baptist eat a locust. We love our heroes because they made a difference, we don’t care if others think they are weird or imperfect. They brought provisions of encouragement, peace, victory, love, light, inventions, art, laughter, wisdom, knowledge and order to this chaotic world.
“So you’re a little weird? Work it! A little different? OWN it! Better to be a nerd than one of the herd!” ― Mandy Hale
“Well, writing novels is incredibly simple: an author sits down…and writes. Granted, most writers I know are a bit strange. Some, downright weird. But then again, you’d have to be.” ― Christopher Hopper
“We read the weird tales in newspapers to crowd out the even weirder stuff inside us.” ― Alain de Botton
There is a good kind of weird we love, and it reflects our personalities.
