The Waiting Is The Hardest Part...
Okay, time for a confession. The truth of the matter is I am a terrible procrastinator.
Now this is not to be confused with lazy. I may be many things, but lazy is not one of them. In fact, I will work furiously at everything else ACCEPT what I am supposed to be doing. It is a skill I have mastered with the best of them.
I am not proud of this...the waiting for inspiration to do what needs to be done is dreadful. Sometimes it never materializes and I find myself begrudgingly trying to sloth my way through a task. This, of course, is in direct conflict with my mantra of living life passionately. There is nothing passionate about guilt over work left undone.
This is being shared with you as I look at two months of bank recs to be done, which never wait this long, and three months worth of filing. I have four papers to write, yet you can see for yourself where I am focusing my energies.
They say never put off tomorrow what can be done today. Someday I hope to meet this elusive "they" so I can slap "they" in the face. What do they know anyway? For now I believe I shall finish this glass of wine, daydream wonderful thoughts that make me smile, and pray for inspiration to take hold. Passionate I can do...waiting has never been my strong suit.
