This is my first blog entry in a long time. I have been amazed, recently, at finding out how creative I can get when procrastinating! Procrastination occurs on so many points:
1. Avoiding thinking about issues that need to be resolved (and for me prayed about).
2. Avoiding maintenance and avoiding being a good steward (maintenance of my body, maintenance of my car, maintenance of my household, maintenance of my marriage and other relationships)
3. Avoiding work that needs to be done (avoiding academic work I need to do, avoiding exercising, etc.)
Procrastination can get real creative! I can procrastinate through social utilities like Facebook, Linked in, surfing random websites, you name it on a computer. I can procrastinate by watching tv, daydreaming, playing video or computer games, music. I can procrastinate by having a meal at an opportune working time, by zoning out on a conversation, by realizing a spider web needs to be cleaned off a wall right when I need to take care of some other business. I can even procrastinate with Sparkpeople if I don't be careful and remain vigilant. I have perfected the art of procrastination!
This year, in 2013, I pray that I will live life and not procrastinate on life. That I will appreciate and embrace TODAY as if it is my last day. That I will courageously face and tackle the least appealing things on my spiritual, physical, and mental plate first. And I know that, one day at a time, I will heal if I only take care of today's business.
