When I was a youth—did I really write that?—the battle cry was Seize the Day! Today it's more like, uh, seize the moment.
In just a snap of a moment, I might finally do a load of laundry. . . vacuum the living room. . . make that darn appointment with the doctor. . . re-order supplements. . . read a chapter. . . prune the lemon tree. . . sew the Christmas gift for the Husband. . . draft the working outline for a book idea. . . or. . . .
You could say I procrastinate. A lot. At least, I make no excuses. Walden Pond taught me that. So, did the Daddy. I realize and accept the consequences for every action that I do. Or don't. Though I wonder if that is an excuse in itself.
I'm participating in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge this month. To check out other participants, click here. See you tomorrow.
I agree-Seize the moment and enjoy what comes to you and you will always remember itReplyDelete
Ah, remembering. . . I'm slowly getting that back from the menopause phase. :-)Delete
hahahaha-i am right in it and I worry i am leaving my head somewhere else and don't get me started on the heat waves. You would have laughed at me standing in the snow at 2am in my jammies loving the -20 CDelete
Because I am good at Seize the Moment, today I am repairing an old quilt to have it done before this evening when I am supposed to return it, repaired, to its owner. However, I am going to buy into accepting the consequences for my actions and not beat myself up with the knowledge that I've had two weeks to get it done. And no, I am not going to consider it an excuse. Great post and one I am commenting on when I should be working on the quilt.ReplyDelete
LOL! Thank you. I'm glad I could distract your for a moment. :-)Delete
I have been so overwhelmed the last few days that I'm going to take your advice and simply Seize the Moment! I can do that.... minute by minute! Thank you for this.ReplyDelete
I read your O post an hour ago or so, Lucy. There's no doubt in my mind that the "overwhelming" will soon pass for ya. :-)Delete
I have a tendency to procrastinate, but I am trying to change that :).ReplyDelete
I think about seizing the moment but before I know it the moment has passed. I wish I had a lemon tree!ReplyDelete
Yup. A lot of moments have passed without me doing what I think I shall seize the moment to do. Such is life. :-)Delete
Guilty of procrastination here too!! In fact, I am putting off going to bed, because I am behind on the A to Z!! And really, reading blogs is much more fun than sleeping. Unless you're napping, but napping is different from sleeping. ;)ReplyDelete
Look at Einstein. He did okay with napping rather than sleeping. :-)Delete
Love it! I so relate!ReplyDelete
