Here I am – 11 pm – two hours of messing around online to take care of a few of the hundred activities my possible touch of ADD self participates in and I am doing another post as promised!!! And the promise from my earlier post was not just to you all but ME!!! I didn’t want to force it but then as I realized I sat at the computer at 9ish look at all the stuff I did before getting on WP.
Procastination roared it’s ugly head once again. But c’est la vie…
I am here now and continuing that thread (appropriate use of the term?}. Instead of having a more meaningful post that I can think of while driving home, doing laundry, feeding the cat or while in the shower. But when I sit down wanting to write all that I do I’ll check an email, respond to someone on facebook or zone out on a tv show for 1o minutes.
Today I googled procrastination. It was like I finally admitted to myself, gave in to the dreadful truth that is who I am. After some reading I am starting to realize that procrastination is not laziness (as learned from the blog post I saw that started it all – the Raptitude blog). So while that statement makes me feel better , knowing it is an issue buried a little deeper into your psyche scares me. But in true Sabrina fashion I will do my research and try to grow and work with this new found ownership of my not so great trait.
I want to do and be a part of so many things then I want to share all that and more to connect with people in a way that is comfortable to me and like I never have before. So in a way today definitely was a new fresh start. Admitting I am a procrastinator, trying to change and learning why. Then sharing my growth and life with my multitude of followers – eventually bahahahahaha.
PS there ARE NOT enough good memes about procrastinating ughhhh
Hmmm – going over in your head what P might be? Hey you over there with your mind in the gutter – it is not what you think!
Procrastination is the avoidance of doing a task which needs to be accomplished. It is the practice of doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, or carrying out less urgent tasks instead of more urgent ones, thus putting off impending tasks to a later time.
I am so guilty of this – at home at work in my sleep. I actually did a google search and found this blog post that I can absolutely relate to and look forward to reading more of this blog – here is a link in case you want to check it out too. http://www.raptitude.com/2011/05/procrastination-is-not-laziness/
Every night I say tomorrow is the day I will start fresh and stay focused and just do what needs to be done. And every morning I wake up excited to do just that. Then BAM – anxiety sets in, I start to get overwhelmed, I stop and start things ten times never to finish them. And as quickly as I set my goals I tear them up and toss em out the nearest window.
I am at work right now – on lunch trying to get myself psyched to get back to blogging – tonight when I get home. I realized there you go again!! Just do a post right now and publish – so here we are. This was more to get back in the groove and talk about what is on my mind right now than is was to write a interesting, eloquent must read post.
I plan on touching more on this Procrastination trait of mine, in depth and detail but woo hoo – I did something when I said I was going to – YAYYYY ME
Please subscribe, read, like, comment and/or share me like crazy. Any and all support is appreciated – even negative thoughts – because hey that means your mentioning me.
Thank you for being here. Stay tuned I PROMISE another post tonight 🙂
