I am NOT a procrastinator, ordinarily. I like to do things way in advance. I get my coffee ready the night before and set a timer. All clothes are picked out in advance. Work deadlines are met long before they're due. I usually use the crock pot for dinner so I don't have to be cooking at 5 o'clock.
But lately things have been different. I don't know if it's the impeding change in the seasons or the kids or what but I am seriously behind. I'm behind on work. I'm behind on the house. I have to remind myself to do little things like pay the bills and wash the clothes. I have turned into a temporary procrastinator. And I have found out something interesting...
It's okay to occasionally procrastinate! Who knew?!? There is something oddly freeing in just putting it off. Having a deadline quickly approaching is a great motivator. I didn't think it was possible. Now, I'm not saying that this will last. I am guessing my old OCD ways will take over in the very near future and the idea of procrastinating will make me feel nauseous but for now I am trying to embrace it.
The house is messy, I haven't vacuumed in a week, the meals aren't planned... and I like it.
