Days Spent Actively Procrastinating: 182
Days Spent Stressing About Procrastinating: 182

 
Today’s the day!

Of course, that’s what I’ve been telling myself for quite a while.

But here I am. Keyboard under my fingers. Typing away.

So, today really is the day.

When I started this blog years ago, it was supposed to be for a joint venture. A venture that quickly fizzled out.

After that failure learning experience, I spent some time thinking…

What is perfecting daily living about?

On one hand, I think I’m the last person who should be writing about perfecting daily life.

If I had to rate myself on a 1-10 scale, I give myself a 2. Only because I’d be too embarrassed to give myself a 1.

My life isn’t terrible.

I have struggles. (How does the laundry pile grow so fast?…)

I have problems. (I spent 45 minutes today looking for the salad I bought at Whole Foods. Which leads to a bigger issue… Why am I always misplacing things?)

I have obstacles. (It’s impossible to get any writing when my mother is visiting…)

Still…

Considering a good portion of our time is spent dealing with the little mundane, repetitive things, you’d think (now entering middle age) I would have progressed more. And, learned how to better handle the little things in life..

It’s okay. (At least that’s what I tell myself.)

I still have time.

And now…

I’m finally ready to start finding ways to actively improve my daily life.

As with most things I do, I don’t expect it to be pretty.

At least, at first…

I don’t expect it to go well.

But with enough focus & time, I’m certain progress can be made.

It’s simply a matter of how – and when.

Tomorrow I start by trying not to lose my grocery bag again!
