The Power of Now...

Sunday, August 08, 2010

I am a procrastinator. I always have been. In high school, if I wasn't up until 3 am the night before a paper was due, something was wrong.

I procrastinated in getting my weight under control and working toward the life I wanted. It was just never the "right time." Now that I'm doing it, and feel great, I have no idea what I was waiting for.

I'm trying to bring the power of "now" into my life more. Part of my search for simplicity in my life is doing things as I go so that I never get overwhelmed. I *could* let the dishes pile up and do them later, letting the pile get so daunting that I don't even want to think about it. But it would feel so much better to do them as I go. Finish with a dish, wash it. I never get a pile in the sink. I never have to contend with food that has fossilized to the pan because I didn't wash it right away. It's easier and more efficient. It makes me wonder why I ever wait in the first place.

We are a society of instant gratification and putting off any source of discomfort as long as possible, perhaps increasing the discomfort later. So I refuse to give in to my inner procrastinator. I am embracing now.... starting tomorrow. Just kidding!
