I'm a procrastinator.
There, I said it.
Being a creative type, I love the ideas, the putting together of it, taking risks, not knowing exactly where something might go. Being present. Going for it. My artistic bent. Following my muse.
What I'm not good at: cleanup. Hate it! (And I'm not one to use the word "hate"). Doing dishes, putting the tools away, cleaning up utensils used, scrapping things that are no longer useful. Folding or hanging up my clothes.
Give me time and space to CREATE!!! I'm all over it! Seeing a moment in nature, grabbing my camera and shooting photos and nature videos. YEAH, BABY!!
So. This year, on my visionboard one of my self actualization exercises is this:
Practice Saying No To Yourself. Refuse 5 temptations each day.
A very simple saying that's become a constant mantra. It plays in my head and I say to myself, Okay, get this done and then you can go do something fun.
I swear, it's working! And when I make the bed, put my clothes away, do the dishes, answer that annoying task that I want to put aside for one more day; afterwards, the clean simplicity of my tasks being done makes me feel a bit lighter!
Just like the snail in my video...it may be slow-going, but keep at it, eventually you'll get there!
And then go do something FUN.
