Its spring again!
You’re probably wondering whether my morning jaunts at the coffee shop have subsided. They haven’t. And the pleasure I gain from my frequent lattes, Cappuccinos and coffees (with cream) is obvious on my upper arms. It’s all good.
This past winter lulled me into complacency. I put off setting my dentist and podiatrist appointments, and I lagged on my latest manuscript. Today, I can say, I accomplished all of the above and I’ve even set the date for my visit with my granddaughters in Seattle.
This brings me to my question to you. What have you been putting off?
Have you been dragging your feet, so to speak, on writing the memoir your thoughts been begging you to write? Shouldn’t you be collating those poems you penned? Where is that manuscript you wrote which you know will inspire others?
Why have you been putting these things off?
You are probably judging yourself. Don’t be saying —
I can’t manage,
I have no time,
It will be overwhelming,
I never finish what I started.
May I coax you into a commitment to start today — right now– on the ‘thing’ you’ve been putting off?
Don’t judge yourself and don’t yield to the judgments of other people.
Do what you can, do it now, and do it well.
Goodbye …my coffee awaits me!
