Have you ever thought …
“I really have to do this, but I just don’t want to”
There are so many things in life that we put off doing and the more we put it off, the worse it becomes in our heads.
On a day to day basis, it could be something as simple as cleaning the bathroom or sorting out a cupboard or doing the monthly accounts, which then stretch to being 6 weekly accounts!
I am adept at avoiding the task by inventing something else that needs doing sooner and actually try to subconsciously trick myself.
Summer is now here, I am not bikini ready, I still have to visit the accountant, clean the house and pack my families suitcases ready for a summer holiday in 2 days! Why did I wait so long? Because i have been busy burying my head in the sand, whilst juggling numerous balls in the air at the same time. Britain’s Got Talent should welcome me for that act next year!
However, I have managed to squeeze in a camping trip over the last weekend.
Thank you Camping Cabopino for a fabulous time, I am still laughing at some of the dance routines you taught us & spinning plates can now be ticked off my bucket list.
Plus I have attended and hosted two different kids parties in 2 days. So, on that past achievement, I must be able to move mountains in the next 2 days ..possibly!
Except tomorrow I have a date to paint a unicorn with my daughter and her best friend as a birthday treat. Obviously not a real one, but a beautiful ceramic one that will be fired in a kiln courtesy of Messy Monsters Ceramics.
So based on my obvious inability to manage my time in a realistic way, I have decided to plan ahead for the future. No more winging it for me, I am going to plan a strategy…tomorrow!
