My daily blogging challenge asks if I could change one thing about myself instantly, what would it be?
Hands down, didn't even have to think about it, I would change the fact that I am a procrastinator. It's not always in an extreme way, but I do procrastinate in varying degrees in most areas of my life.
I procrastinate on laundry. I procrastinate on studying. I procrastinate on cooking ( a little less on this one because I can't function if I have not eaten). I procrastinate on writing my blog if it's something I don't want to write about. I procrastinate on all kinds of stuff. Pretty much the only thing I don't procrastinate on is my car maintenance and that's because I need that ole' bird in tip top shape for my job.
Current example. I have procrastinated on packing. I've been getting a little done here and there but now we are in the final crunch time. I am moving tomorrow. People are showing up at my house at 8 am. I'd say a good 50% of my stuff isn't pack. I'm not 100% sure on that number though, I'll have to count boxes tomorrow and let you know.
So now, instead of getting any sleep at all tonight like I want, I'll probably be pulling an all nighter just so I can have everything ready to rock and roll in the AM.
If I had been more diligent about packing all week instead of procrastinating, This would not be a problem. All I'd have to pack up tonight would be animal stuff and the few toiletries that I needed to use today and that would be it.
But Noooooooo, why on earth would I want to make my own life that easy.... :-(
So here's to happy packing and a purging spirit, that I may throw away more things than I will pack.
