E is for Eventually

Since my dedication to Brighid I’ve been aware of areas of my life that could use some work. I suspect that this is prompting from Brighid but either way, these are things that I will benefit from addressing. Like my health. Like whether I go back to work at the end of my maternity leave or apply for a career break to stay home with my kids. Like what I’m doing with my Etsy shop. Like my tendency to procrastinate. Especially that last one – the rest isn’t going to get done unless I address that one.

I’m one of those people who plans to do everything tomorrow. Part of the problem is that I often take on too much. I plan a weeks’s worth of activities for one day and then can’t understand when I don’t get it all done. And then I kind of fizzle out. The biggest problem though is simple procrastination.

I set the alarm early so that I have time to do a proper morning ritual but when it goes off I hit snooze a couple of times and end up rushing and saying a hurried prayer in the shower.

I plan to start an exercise programme and really stick to it this time – tomorrow…

I decide to do some Etsy work while the baby has her nap – as soon as I’ve finished reading this chapter…

I’ll do some more work on the crochet blanket that I’m making as a way to learn crochet – on my next flamekeeping shift…

I’m sure you get the picture. I’m amazed that Brighid is so patient with me. I mean, you’d think She would have worked out by now that I might not be worth the effort. Still She is there, spurring me on. I know that if I can just kick this habit of procrastination then I can be productive and maybe even useful to Her but I really don’t know where to start.

Oh well, I’m sure I’ll work it out. Eventually.
