on Procrastination....

We  ALL do it...
We leave those bills, ignored, piling up on the console table...
(knowing FULL WELL with each passing day that they ARE LITERALLY GROWING!)
We keep that clothing that's been in our closets for 20 years (unworn!),,,
telling ourselves, at LEAST once a week, that we MUST get rid of it...
We PLEDGE to begin that DIET tomorrow....
(just after one more slice of pizza!)
We schedule important meetings LATE....at the last minute...
We cram for exams just before we take them...
rather than preparing in advance....
and on and on....
So...
Why ??
What is it in our natures that literally FORCES us to keep things 'at bay' for TOO LONG ?
I have given this lots and lots of thought....
(But I've PROCRASTINATED on sharing it with you !!)
LOL
Here's what I think....
I think that there's a FANTASIZE er within every one of us....
A little elf who whispers in our ears during the night,
telling us that the DRUDGERY and OBLIGATORY hooo haaa...
will somehow DISAPPEAR upon our awakening...
We then FULLY EXPECT that there will be a CLEAN SLATE in the morning...
(along with a mantel full of awards, celebrating our endeavors and achievements!)
But alas....
NOTHING HAS CHANGED during the night !
Hence...
another day of PROCRASTINATION begins.....
I AM YOUR FAITHFUL
