Monday’s Musings: Confessions of a Laid-Back Procrastinator
As a SAHM mom of a daughter under two, I LOVE what I am doing but find that I want to challenge myself more so now than ever before. I have this newfound desire to do things that I wasn’t able to do when I was working 75+ hours a week as a marketing account sales rep. I either didn’t have time or didn’t realize that I was missing that part of my life. Life was consumed by work and staying afloat within my personal life. There was no time for extras. I surprisingly seem have more time for self-reflection now, and want to ensure that I don’t lose my sense of self. Yes, I am K’s mom, but I am also a wife, a daughter, a runner, a reader, an aspiring fashionista …..
The only problem with this desire to challenge myself, is that I can be a bit of a lazy procrastinator. Sure I want to better myself, but can’t I start tomorrow?! I think that motherhood has made my procrastinating style even worse, as my days sometimes seem to run together and I rarely have any kind of deadlines. Self-imposed deadlines are easily to moved to tomorrow, next week, next month.
I’m really hoping that by documenting some of my ideas within this blog, that I will be able to hold myself accountable. I owe it to my daughter to be a confident and fulfilled role model, even if it is a semi-procrastinating one.
