i always told myself procrastination was fine because i work best under pressure.
this is not a good mantra for a college student.
i will say, now that i'm a wfhm (work from home mom - duh. actually...i had to google it.), my procrastination rate has dwindled.
as it turns out...if you want to get it all done, you can't procrastinate.
except for blogging. you can totally procrastinate with blogging and it's perfectly accepted...because most of us have been there one or 29834 times. amiright? or amiright?
so, for this post i'm going to share with you five things i did on thursday night other than writing this post.
and what i'm saying is this - don't procrastinate...just get your link up on -
1 | grab this here snazzy summer-themed button and link back to Sept. Farm.
2 | link up your post at the bottom of this post.
3 | tell all your friends + have a fantastic friday.
my five - things i did other than write this post
1 | dvr confession - rather than write this post i browsed our DVR. as it turns out, even when you still have cable (that's another story) and your DVR is filled with trash...there can still be nothing to watch. luckily, i was saved by a mediocre game six of the NBA finals. all this to say - we still have cable.
2 | design research - rather than write this post i spent waaaaaay too much time on pinterest // instagram...it's all such a wealth of knowledge and inspiration. but sometimes it can be so severely deflating and debilitating and fill you with self-doubt...and some serious negative self-talk. i can hear myself in my own head saying how do they do that? or why didn't i think of that? will my mind ever work that way?
but i have to remind myself that some people are just true artists and it's all very natural. and some people just have a specific style and an eye for what they like (that's me). this limits me in the type of clients i can take on and content i can produce, but that's okay. as long as i can continue to enjoy the work!
3 | friends and family - rather than write this post i browsed potterybarn.com. it's always pottery barn with the friends and family. i get excited when they send me a percentage off because we are in desperate need of a new kitchen table and rug. i have yet to pull the trigger...
the current table was a hand-me-down that, honestly, i never imagined we would have for four years. well, i'm glad we do have it because the girls have epically destroyed it. and what's better is that i'm not panic-stricken every time we sit down to eat.
regardless - i totally have my eyeballs on this one. also...can i just have this dining room?
4 | cleaning - rather than write this post i - did the dishes, cleaned the basement, folded laundry, vacuumed and wiped all the windowsills, watered the flowers and the garden, made out with my farmer, and kind of cleaned out my car.
even after the girls go to bed there's still so much to do. i was also going to pack our bags for mccall...but i was too tired.
5 | i did some blog reading - have you been following this story? it's absolutely heartbreaking. you have probably heard of her or at least seen her pins on pinterest. she's an idaho gal with five darling children.
i'm not the authority on touchy-feely, kind words, etc. but, blogging does have the most amazing community and i bet she receives thousands of uplifting messages...and if you have a few minutes, i'd be willing to bet sending her some more kind thoughts wouldn't hurt a thing.
on that note...don't procrastinate...hug your loved ones...and link up.
