Beating Procrastination And Not being Overwhelmed

jumping-ropeI’m very results oriented but there are some things, many things that I’ve been procrastinating about this year, and I know that getting organised will help me move forward. I have lots to sort out since my husband’s death and it’s true that in you don’t have the strength or energy to face most things. But once you do have the energy you still don’t feel like doing all those things so you’re just procrastinating and they are weighing you down (me down). I get overwhelmed with all the things that my husband did for me and now I have to do them myself. Simple things like putting shelf together. I did put a shelf together, it took me all afternoon and I cried while doing it but in the end I was pleased that I had done it.

Procrastination is not your friend. Take daily actions towards your future.

My husband made my website (portfolio) for me, it hasn’t been touch in over a year so it’s quite out of date. I was overwhelm by the thought of it and knowing it needed to be sorted sent me into a bit of a tailspin. I never had the password for the site or knew where it was hosted or really anything about the back end of it. When I first started writing my blog it was on Typepad and as a surprise present my husband moved the whole blog on to WordPress for me – so he really looked after all my tech stuff. Now I need to learn how this all works so I recently I reached out to a friend who’s going to help me get it sorted. Just knowing I can reach out to someone and get things sorted is a relief and away of moving forward.

If I wanted to challenge myself for 30 days, (which I do) and 10 days of blogging has seemed like a challenge it would be to make time every day to keep blogging! I also think I’d like to skip everyday. I loved skipping when I was 10 so why stop now?!

Imperfect action is better then no action.
