As I think about my plan of tackling a “someday” every month for a year, I realize I’ve created something similar to the 12 Days of Christmas where each day something new is added and all become cumulative. Day One: Partridge in a Pear Tree. Day Two: Two Turtle Doves AND a Partridge in a Pear Tree. For me it’s Month One: Daily Writing Practice. Month Two: Daily Meditation Practice AND Daily Writing Practice. Next month I’ll be adding in the physical challenge of a daily four mile walk/run and it goes on from there. I see myself at the end of the year getting up in the morning and spending the first four hours writing, meditating, walking, playing the drums (I’ll need to save that until everyone else in the house is awake), practicing Italian, etc. This could become crazy.
I have always said “Embrace the Crazy”. Many have said my family and I lead crazy, busy lives. But additional craziness isn’t really on my “someday” list. Perhaps my 366 Somedays only seems a prescription for crazy. Perhaps it is the route to sanity…wait, would that mean my life is already crazy?
Sigh. What a year this is shaping up to be.
