Frustrations

Procrastination 

I HATE THEE!!

I know them are some strong words!! I just hate how it takes over me and I succumb to the grasp of procrastination 😖 One would think that it shouldn’t be able to become free of its own since we are in control of ourselves… but, oh, how that is not the case whatsoever! 

If we don’t have the discipline/will power, the procrastination grasp can be as strong as iron 😭 

So far, after reading and listening to various books on motivation and the like, I’ve come to the point to understand that in order for me to not fall into the procrastination hole for hours is to stop IMMEDIATELY what I’m doing and consciously ask myself what is the ONE thing that needs to be completed RIGHT NOW! And 9 times out of 10, I’m successful 😁👏 It’s not perfect, but I’m okay w/ that–most things in life aren’t perfect, as long as I can do awesome most of the time, I’m happy 😊 

Sometimes, when I do the sudden stop and prioritize, I feel like it’s a mental slap 😂 Hey, whatever works! Haha! 

What’s funny about all this is that, when I don’t procrastinate, my day is almost 💯 times better! And when I do procrastinate, most of my day is kinda poopy 😣 With that said, again, I would think it would be much easier to NOT procrastinate since it causes good feelings. So, is it because it’s easier to procrastinate but the down side is that I feel like crap at the end? *SMH* So annoying! 

Who else has this problem? Share your tips! I can use all that I can get 😳😑

Life isn’t Suppose to be Fair

Okay, so, since my last post, things didn’t turn out as I had hoped it would =/ TOTAL FAIL!! But (!!) better late than never…

Check out my previous post, 45 Life Lessons, Written by a 90-year-old, to get a gist of what I’ll be spewing out here and the following 44 posts (seems so daunting… zoinks!).

FIRST UP!……

1. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.

There’s been many a-time when I feel like life isn’t fair, such as…. maybe the couple who tries so hard to have a child and cannot and has every means to do so, but for whatever reason, nature doesn’t give in to these deserving parents and will let that druggie give birth to a heroin addicted infant; or when a student works two or three jobs to pay their way through college to gain a better and brighter future while there are the so-called ‘students’ (aka brats) who waste time partying and not take advantage of the funds readily available to them to better themselves. I mean, really!!! WHAT THE HECK??? What kind of world is this??? Really??? REALLY??? 

It frustrates me to no end!!…. But at the end of the day, when I’ve counted to ten while focusing on my breath a hundred and one times over, one comes to the realization that nobody ever said that life is suppose to be fair… and, anyways, ‘fair’ is boring =P

What I’m trying to say is that if we didn’t have those less-than-great moments, could we ever really appreciate and value the times when things are going well?

Nothing is permanent… as much as the good times don’t continuously roll, neither does the bad times… thank goodness! So, APPRECIATE THAT!!

And, yes, there will be those who are better off than us… but then there will always be those who are less fortunate than us… the latter looks upon us wishing they could be where we are NOW! Go gnaw on that for a second!

So, appreciate what you have and where you’re at cause good or bad, it ain’t gonna last and it could be worse. Remember, if it weren’t for the hard times, when would we ever feel a sense of accomplishment knowing that we pulled through a challenging time or reached a goal we set out for ourselves?? 

Take a moment and look around you……. and think of how it could be worse……. feelin’ a little better? If not <shrug>, well, then I don’t got nothin’ else to say to ya cause you’re just a hopeless case–just wanting to remain in your self-inflicted misery! Now, scram! GIT!! We don’t want your miserable kind here! I don’t know about anybody else, but I don’t have time, energy, nor the patience for toxic and lazy people in my life (I rank pretty high up there in procrastinating on my own, I don’t need anybody else to encourage that terrible habit any further for me).

Crap will continue to happen to everybody at some point or another so you might as well face it straight on and move along your merry little way rather than trying to resist the circumstances–just accept it and go about making sh*t better! And while you’re off fighting your demons and the Green Goblin, make it a point not to cause harm or pain to anybody you come in contact with… spread love, not hate… I know, super cheesy; and I’m not one to normally preach love and stuff but sometimes… that kinda sh*t’s just gotta be said and put out there. 

So, now… go on w/ your bad self and SMILE AT SOMEBODY cause life can sometimes suck on its own already, you don’t need to be adding to the sucky-ness =)
