I’m not nearly as crazy as I used to be. Now you could say I’m even semi-sane–though I’m not sure that’s always an advisable way to survive the madness that is image-obsessed, media-driven, fast-food-consuming middle America.
We may all be better off a little more crazy and a lot less obsessed with success.
However, and this is an over-sized qualifier indeed, my head has never quite figured out how to do sanity full-time. If only it were 9 to 5 instead of 24/7. That’s a lot more normal than I’m able to manage–even on a good day.
Too often still, my brain looks like this:
So don’t worry if the dishes aren’t done, the laundry looms. The kids are bound to grow into semi-civilized adults despite your best efforts.
Normal’s not all it’s cracked up to be. So go a little crazy today.
Do something radical and off the wall: GIVE YOURSELF A BREAK!
