Procrastination Visit

Procrastination. We’ve all procrastinated at one point or another. Right? Yet, some have the nifty ability to take procrastination to a whole other level. Like myself! Seriously, I know I work better under pressure. And when that clock starts ticking downward, that is when I can accomplish great things in minimal amounts of time.

For instance, this spring has been busy and hectic, as I’ve shared in a previous post. Yet, I was in full swing and accomplishing so many things. Furthermore, those many things all met each of their deadlines. Woohoo! (Go me!)

Constant going had its costs though. At some point, I started hitting fatigue walls. Fatigue from the constant activity and, yes, from the constant stress of so many deadlines. Furthermore, my hubby started getting grumpy towards my constant busy-ness and disappearing acts. Trying to keep everyone happy and on task, I pushed through towards this “miraculous slow time” I could see on the horizon.

Surprise! (Not really. Lol) Goal accomplished. I made it! That constant whirlwind finally spun itself out. (Thank you, Lord Jesus!) And I could finally rest. (And stay married. *wink*) I had finally reached the point that I could really, and truly, put some things off so I could recover a bit. Take some chill time for “me”. Which over time, you know, eventually stagnates. Then, further along, becomes known as procrastination. Darn it. Lol! “Resting” and “catching up” on other things sound so much more appealing. Lol! Right?!?

So, now, I’ve found myself in this strange procrastination loop. I know I really need to get a move on and accomplish things. I really do need to get back on some tasks. Life doesn’t stop just because the overall pace of things slows down just a bit. But, geez. My mind and body really dropped off into that “I don’t wanna!” vortex. Big time!

Luckily, I’m finally rebounding. (At least I think I am.) My “mojo” is finally starting to rejuvenating itself. Motivation has begun to spark back to life within me. It’s getting closer to the time to jump back in and, once again, pull myself up. As Helen Keller wrote, “Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing”. And, I’m definitely getting ready for another adventure.

How about you???

Are you facing a bad spell of procrastination?

Soldier on, my friend! Hang in there, and keep pushing forward. Tweak what you need to tweak (schedule, foods, meds, and on, and on). Soak up your favorite things. Then get up. Dust yourself off. And let’s “behave like free spirits in the presence of fate”.

Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.
To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.”
