I mean, maybe you need me to talk to you too, but for now….. this is more of me balancing and moving forward.
I’ve been ‘talking’ too much lately. And by lately, I mean, oh….maybe the past year. Sometimes I’m talking to you, sometimes I’m talking on this site and sometimes, I’m just talking to myself.
Either way…. it seems to me, I’ve spent a whole hell of a lot of time TALKING about what I need to do – instead of JUST DOING IT. Let me give you a brief list:
- eat well
- organize the kid’s papers
- respond to emails
- write this post (and that one)
- Clean out the office
- FIND things (I keep losing IMPORTANT items) *sigh*
But instead of getting up in the morning with exercise on my schedule, instead of choosing the right snacks, instead of sitting down and writing, instead of JUST CLEANING the dang office…. I say to myself, “I should really….”, or I write about it, or *gasp* I put it on a list.
A list? A LIST???
I’ve been thinking about my propensity towards this flaw and I know why I do it. I somehow hope that by sharing what I need to do, I will feel obligated to do it.
It isn’t working. Because I need to be accountable to me, not anyone else.
So, as part of my journey to a more balanced me, I’m embracing, Stop Talking, Start Doing.
Do you ever do this? Talk yourself in a circle, but avoid taking ACTION? What do you do to snap out of it?
