Life is like that, though. As long as something seems really far off, it has a dream-like quality. That THING you are going to do someday has a misty, unreal aura about it, like you are reading a book about somebody else's life. Then someday gets too close to ignore and reality sets in. It's no longer a dream, it's reality. Everything takes on a sharp edged quality, too bright, too clear, too imminent. Of course, if this didn't happen, how would we be motivated to take action? I know I wouldn't. I'd still be lounging in bed, dreaming of the day I was going to hike the trail.
That day is 31 days away.
It's time to get to business...the business of panicking! My friend, Isa, calls my melt downs "Pizza Hut Moments". (The original Pizza Hut Moment involved extreme hunger and low blood sugar -- a condition known as h-anger -- but mere stress without the hunger can produce the same effect)
Stay tuned for the next 31 days. You just may be lucky enough to witness a full-on Pizza Hut Moment. They are a sight to behold!
In the meantime, I gotta go get crack-a-lackin'! The count down is on.
