I was super optimistic this morning dressing in a pair of shorts and t-shirt. I am now actually cold! The last few days the weather has certainly sprung more moods on us than a woman in menopause.
This morning I’ve spent some time doing something I’ve been wanting to do for the longest time. I used to have a YouTube Channel for my app (for those that remember that far back), but I’ve been meaning to change it to my blog for ever but just never had the energy for the work it entailed. Well, this morning I decided to tackle the task head on and finally finished it! You can now find Karolien – There’s life after kids on YouTube as well.
I don’t know about you but I always experience a certain level of satisfaction when I finally complete something or master a new skill. It brings out a sense of accomplishment, a quiet moment of pride. It’s quite human I think. I like learning new things and I sometimes think I am addicted to that feeling, that awesome moment when you figure something out or overcome a challenge you’ve set for yourself.
By now you all know I am a bit of a procrastinator…..although I would like to believe mostly I do get the job done. I tend to thrive on deadlines and a heady adrenaline rush. Not good but there it is. That is me.
My thought for today is. Even though you procrastinate, put things off, ignoring tasks, challenges or whatever else in life hoping that it will just disappear, don’t lose faith. If you eventually get it done it is good enough. Sometimes just tackling one small thing at a time is good enough. If that is all you can manage so be it.
On that note. May this be a beautiful day! Toss that to-do list and take a coffee break. Just breath.
