Flylady says it is anti-procrastination day! Everyday ought to be that for me. I am such a procrastinator although I'm getting better a big at a time. Instead of sitting here typing I ought to be getting ready for my day. I have a lot to do so soon I will get showered, dressed and shoes on so I can get some work done before I go to a luncheon and drive to see a client!
Today is hubby's 65th birthday and we are going out to dinner. One thing I have been procrastinating on this year is starting any sort of a healthy eating plan. I started the year off right but floundered with illness and a trip to Disney. OH, well. My son has a job now so at least that stressor is gone. I hope and pray this works out for him long term.
I'm not procrastinating another minute, off to get dressed and moving. Later.

So today I went to a luncheon for PR industry professionals and a Success Coach was the speaker. She gave us a "Wheel of Life" with a circle and 12 slices made up into 12 areas of our life where we have goals. Then she also gave us a worksheet. We were to think of a person that we really admired and then to write down 5 characteristics of that person. I could not immediately think of a person but I started to write down the characteristics that I would like to have. Then I realized that I was talking about my friend Pat! The person I was thinking about was happy, had peace within, was friendly, giving and outgoing. And it was Pat. And those 5 things were things that I felt I struggle with. Then the speaker had us read the characteristics aloud and then said to look in the mirror because we would only recognize those characteristics in others if we had them ourselves!
Interesting. I felt I struggled with them, always working on them. Always pushing myself to get out of the house and be outgoing. My husband was out of town last night and I just hunkered down in the house with the dogs. ANd I thought to myself, if anything ever happened to him I would probably become a hermit. I would probably just hollow a space out in a chair and sit and watch TV all day. Or sleep.
I'm going through a rough time. If you can read between the lines. I just feel one level below normal and have to constantly fight it. I take meds for depression so I know this will pass but it is a struggle. So I was glad to go and hear the speaker at lunch today. In case you were wondering, the 12 items in the wheel of life are:
And you are supposed to have a vision statement for each item. She also said that at the end of the year, she always goes through with her clients, listing 100 items that you accomplished in the year. I would have a hard time coming up with 100 items of accomplishment. I probably have way more than that but just listing things like a successful job for a client just seems like my job anyway. Like I was supposed to do it anyway. I guess I don't give myself enough credit and it is a struggle to do so, like I'm bragging.
So I am going to work on my wheel of life and see what I can come up with. Later.
