Everyone has times where they feel like they just have so many tasks that they need and want to do, just piling up and up and up. Even those things that aren’t tedious jobs – like that book you bought a couple of months ago and have been meaning to read, or the fact that you wanted to begin painting, but never quite got round to it. It could be something big – re-decorating the house and doing a massive spring clean – or something small, like giving yourself the time to relax and to finally use that exciting bath bomb that you’ve hoarded for so long.
We are always thinking ahead, planning ahead. That’s okay – I think thinking ahead is very healthy, and gives everyday personal meaning, because everyday is step forward toward your dreams. However, sometimes in always thinking ahead, in always putting off the “less pressing” tasks, we end up with this backlog in our mind of all the things we never ALLOW ourselves to do, due to labelling them as being less of a priority.
Sometimes, we just need to say to ourselves…
If not now, then when?
When you next have some time, even just an hour away from being in college, from being in University, from being at work… Ask yourself: If not now, then when? Then decide on something that you really don’t WANT to be left for another week, another month, another season, another year… And just DO it. Get it done. Get up, stop overthinking about whether it is the most pressing thing that you need to do at the minute and just do it!
I’ll be posting about some of the things I achieve after asking myself this exact question!
Go on, what are you waiting for!
