Last week as I mourned the loss of my normal, quiet life, I had an epiphany.
That life, that normalcy I was so used to, is gone forever.
This is what normal life is. For now. I expect it to get even crazier as I age. Which is insane to me.
I'm reminded of my senior year at A&M. When I looked back over my collegiate career, I was amazed at how I remembered my freshman year as stressful and very busy. But compared to my senior year, it was idle and zero stress.
That's how I feel now.
This funny thing happens when you think you've got everything figured out. Something changes. Sometimes it's wrought by you. Sometimes it's forced on you. It can be a large change. Or a subtle shift in perspective. Either way, what you thought you knew is no longer.
I only thought I knew a busy life. Turns out. Not so much.
