Procrastination

It is only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth – and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up – that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.
~Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

Procrastination seems like a good place to re-start. My last post was about a year and a half ago. As they say, time flies! I love to write, and love to share my thoughts here and, somehow, month after month after month passed without my coming back to this place of contemplation and stringing words together.

Even though it often doesn’t feel like it, every single moment is a choice. Right this minute, I can choose to either go for that run I was planning on going on – or – sit on this couch and break the long-running silence of my blog. Both options have merit. For the past few months, I’ve been choosing ‘option A’ and running or working out, and those precious morning hours have been quickly spent – and the day begins. Time to face all the rest of my responsibilities.

While walking in the woods recently – the best place to ponder, by the way – my friend (you know who you are) and I found ourselves talking about priorities. We noticed that our stated priorities didn’t necessarily match the actual focus of our days and hours. We thought it would be interesting to actually take the time to list our priorities and sort of chart out our day-to-day lives – hours spent at work, grocery shopping, with friends, etc etc. To what degree would the two lists align?

I haven’t actually made any lists yet. (Please see title to this writing. . .)

“Live each day to the fullest.” I want to wake up to the Truth of this statement. I want to bring greater consciousness and awareness to the moment-to-moment choices that I’m constantly making, no longer putting off for tomorrow what is essentially important in this moment. I want those choices to come from a connection with Spirit, a dance in which I allow Spirit to lead, and I follow. Even though I’m not a very good dancer! Even though I often try to lead instead of follow! In this moment, I’ll begin again.

And this one. . . and this one. . .
