Tommorow's Gonna be Another Day..
Scarlett a resourceful girl-in-a-green-curtain-gown, was known for putting things off. And I share that quality as well. Not the resourcefulness, but the procrastination.
Yesterday, in my cozies, I once again thought of reasons NOT to undecorated my mantle and Christmas tree. I realize it's past time to do this task, but I needed to read the Sunday News as well as the Macomb Daily. I hadn't checked my Facebook since, well, earlier in the day. Some movies I recorded needed my undivided attention. And since I put off going to Kroger, I needed to dream up a creative dinner option with sparse items in my larder. Sigh... Feeling completely overwhelmed, maybe a nap was in order to clear my head and put things into perspective. And so it goes...
My bills get paid but arrive at their places just in the nick of time. I get gas in Rocco only after the bell pongs it's warning about a thousand times. I pack the night before a vacation-hate to rush into things! I routinely miss the warm up of my classes at the gym; however, that may not be an accident. I always put off unloading the dishwasher, a job that takes all of 3 minutes-I know, cuz I've timed it. Really, it's just poor time management.
I realize how stupid and how much extra stress I cause myself by doing this. I put things on a list, mull and assess them, worry a little on how I'm ever going to get it all done. I spend more time planning and stressing than the actual job takes!
But I'm trying..it's a goal of mine to STOP putting the 'pro' in procrastination. But, hey, ya gotta be good at something-right? Yep, I'll get right on it. "After all, tomorrow is another day." Scarlett O'Hara says so, and that's good enough for me! xo
