Sounds odd doesn't it? After all why do today what you can put off till tomorrow? If you are like me you have had it beaten into you that procrastination is bad. You've been told all your life to, "Take action. Do it now. Don't put off till tomorrow what you can do today." Blah blah blah yada yada yada. Over and over again. Enough already.
Wondering how I am doing in comparison with others has never helped me. It's only led me to discouragement and despair. I don't know if I will ever match my hero's abilities, and there always seems to be someone better than me. Why even bother?
It's not how much you have around you, it's how thankful you feel inside. To be thankful, is to be wealthy, to have regret, is to be poor, and you get to choose.
There is a fog between everything I need to get done, I can only seem to see in front of me a few feet at a time. Life doesn’t stop for the holidays, the holidays are just piled on top.
I have learned that it's worth the disappointment. It's worth the discouragement. It's even with the battles with depression. It's perspective. It's how I choose to look at it, and accept things. I decided at some point to no longer care about how I measure up to others. Let them chase their success, while I define my own.
