I procrastinate a lot. Particularly if I don’t write it down, whatever it may be. I love using my electronic to-do list app and calendar, but they don’t always keep me on track. Yesterday I purchased a new day planner. It isn’t exactly what I want, but for now it’ll have to do. One of my goals in 2011 is to take a sketch I created in my journal and develop my own custom planner. You know those paper-book-like things where you actually use a pen to write stuff down? You might be too young to remember how popular Day Runner, Day Timer and FranklinCovey Planners were before the invention of PDAs and Smartphones. LOL.
Many of the remaining eleven things can be managed, alleviated or eliminated by journaling and getting back to my once daily habit of writing down acknowledgments, affirmations and gratitude’s. I filled a journal with such delightful lists and never started a new one. It’s time. (In fact, my custom planner sketch includes a place for these daily notes). I don’t know what it is about letting go of the things that work for me. I guess it’s sort of like taking medication. You get to feeling good and think you don’t need it anymore. But you do. So I’m writing myself a prescription.
If I eliminated even some of these eleven things I would be clearing a path to more authenticity, confidence, passion, joy, peace; love….the list goes on. I would feel healthier and more in tune with who I am as a woman; as a person. I would find comfort in my own skin, be full-ON open to new experiences and feel connected to the people around me. Eliminating this list would bring out the absolute best in me and allow me to Live My Best Life.
