Procrastination is underrated

I have not updated the blog in a few weeks and would like to offer my apologies to the three confirmed readers. I'm sure you have been dying from suspense.

All joking aside, I have not been consistent with the blog because I am not someone who thrives on being consistent. I live based on my moods. I am excellent at starting something, getting really excited about it, and then inevitably not following through. I have accepted this, and for the most part I am okay with it.

I think that procrastination gets a bad rap in our society. We are encouraged to believe, achieve, reach for the stars (I wish that was an exaggeration) I'm not saying that there is anything wrong with having goals and accomplishing them. I'm just saying that sometimes you need to take your time and feel things out. To listen to yourself and discover your own truth. I feel that if you try something out and you lose interest or it doesn't work out it ultimately means that it wasn't right for you. The hard part for me is when I know that something is right for me and I still have a hard time following through. I have had to spend some time deciding what is right for me and then learning how to slow down, be realistic, and take the necessary steps to accomplish it.

A few goals I have are:

Obtaining my 200 hour Yoga teacher certificate

Updating the blog often(even if the reader number never reaches beyond 3!)

Starting a savings account (actually have attempted this in the past and failed miserably, so a better goal would be to maintain a savings account

There are more things I could add, but these are the most pressing ones at the moment.

I will let you know how it goes. In another month. Or when the mood strikes. Wait, no. Must commit. Must commit.

  1. I will go ahead and add another goal-come up with a name for the blog. I'm avoiding it because it just seems so..definitive. So final. These words are synonymous with commitment *shudder*
