Let’s Talk Procrastination (July 10, 2019)

Originally Written July 9th

Procrastination can seem all well and great, but the more you put something off, the more you’ll wish you would’ve done it earlier, take homework for example why were most of us so keen on putting it off so much!? I mean yeah I get it, it wasn’t always fun and it was a bit annoying having to bring home work, I mean we could’ve easily just done it in school.

Maybe that’s why people went to study hall (study period for some) or tried doing their work during lunch hour so they wouldn’t have to worry about doing the work at home, but even if we had to take work back home, what was so wrong with getting it done when we knew we had it!? Why did we always make a big fuss and always see it as some chore all the time!?

Had we just gotten it done when we needed it to be, I don’t think the stress with having to do it would’ve been so bad, but because it’s easier to put things off for later, we don’t think of it as being that big of a deal, because in our minds if we don’t get to it now, we’ll get to it eventually….

Only when it does come around to “eventually” by that time we would’ve already forgotten about it, at least until it starts to kick in that we were meant to do something and later remember what that something was, which then causes us to go into panic mode, to where we then stress even more about it…..yeah okay, we probably would’ve still stressed about it,

However our stress levels would’ve most likely been way lower if we got it all out the way first, instead of dealing with it last……but this isn’t just about homework i’m talking about, that was just an example, procrastinating things in your day to day life also leaves you to stress……

We all know life is already stressful no matter how we may try to look at it, so why add more stress then the stresses life already has to it!? We’ve all procrastinated, i’ll admit i’m probably one of the biggest procrastinators you’ll ever know and or meet, which is why i’m writing about this……

Well that and I heard someone mention homework off a video I watched yesterday and it had me thinking about why it is that we always used to or still try our best to put it off so much…….

We may think it’s not a problem and that it’s fine to procrastinate and sometimes it is when you know you need a little break off something, that being said however, it can get pretty stale after a while if you procrastinate too much (believe me) eventually all that leaving for later will start to weigh on you, causing much more to be done than what you originally started with, leaving you to feel way more overwhelmed, which will have you really wanting to put things off for sure.

Now you’re left mentally and sometimes even emotionally and physically crashing all the time……my point is…..maybe if we procrastinated a little less, we probably would get so much more done, as well as feel so much better for it, knowing we got to it earlier instead of waiting to do it later.

By doing that it gives us more time to relax, getting rid of most of the worries and stresses in our minds……I must say though, some people do thrive more on leaving things for later, but to each their own I guess, as long as it’s in a healthy way, I guess it’s alright…..

P.S. Before you say it, no I was not procrastinating on this post, I was just looking it over…..an extra day…..

Write Like Yourself…. (July 4, 2019)

They say to write like yourself, but what does that even mean exactly!? How are you supposed to write like yourself!? It should be an easy thing to understand, yet when it comes to doing so, it feels hard, am I the only one that feels that way!?

Do you write about your feelings or your thoughts!? Most people might say experience, but what if you haven’t really experienced much in particular or aren’t sure on how to write about the things you’ve experienced!? What if you’ve always been the kind of person looking from the outside in with everything, not really knowing what to do or how to react, causing you to feel like expressing yourself is something you should keep to yourself…..

I don’t know if any of that makes much sense, but seriously how do you write like yourself, when you aren’t even sure if what you’re going to write about is something that’s going to make sense or will be understood properly!? It’s just a little confusing when you’re told to write like yourself, yet aren’t really sure in what way, it’s mean’t to mean…….

Write what you feel, write what you think, yet you know that when it come to writing as well as any other showcasing of things, we like doing it’s not just for you, we’re not just creating and sharing for ourselves, maybe in the moment we are, but once it’s out there, it becomes more than just our own.

It’s there for everyone to see and take in, which of course is very intimidating, that kind of thing might make you feel as if what you’re doing already isn’t quite working and than you become stressed and overwhelmed because you want to know what else you could do to make what you already have better, yet you aren’t exactly sure how to do so….

“Write like yourself” how do you know you’re doing that right!? How do you know you’re putting the right thoughts into motions without it seeming as if your rambling or not making sense……how do you know if everything is coming across alright!? “Write like yourself” you guys know what that means because if so, you got any tips to help me understand it better!?

All The Love ❤ ❤
