I have been in a constant state of procrastination all day.
I am speaking this Sunday and I have needed too, wanted too study all day, yet have put it off, then thought a little and put it off some more.
What is it about procrastination that is so appealing?
Facebook, Instagram, pinterest, anything…anything…anything than the required task.
Husband; do you want a coffee?
Children; let’s walk to the park?
Friends; text, text, text, text…
I will do anything, clean, hang the washing out, potter, cook, knit, crochet to get out of locking my thoughts and heart in my study.
I want to study but I don’t want to lock it in.
Once I force myself to that place of focus I’m suddenly in love.
Music playing. Thoughts flying. Inspiration burgeoning.
So why does it take so long to get there?
I believe procrastination is part of the creative process.
As I run away from the starting gate, like a horse trying to buck its restraints, my mind is perusing it’s boundaries and setting its course towards inspiration.
The avoidance is a place of seeking.
As I run away from the idea, it seems to catch me.
A internal game of hide and seek.
Procrastinate towards your idea. Ruminate, think, allowing the brewing to create frustration which in turn I find often brings about the desired result.
Procrastinate with me.
