I've checked Facebook a few times, my email, and even played a game or three of Soda Crush as I drink my coffee. What is a girl to do? I need to know...am I alone in this conundrum? I don't think so, hence the reason I'm putting it out there for a blog discussion.
Yesterday was Ash Wednesday, forty days before Easter, and a time when some "give up" something. This can be a food, bad habit, or thing. Others use this time to take up a new habit. Then there are those of us who focus on both, eliminating something pulling our attention away from God while adding something to help us reconnect or be a better man or woman.
What does Lent have to do with avoiding a task? I don't know, maybe nothing, but on the other hand, what if I gave up procrastination for Lent and focused on only thinking and speaking positive and encouraging thoughts and words? Hmm...would this solve my avoidance in completing a task? Probably not, since it's worked for me the past forty years, BUT...it might minimize the frustration of having to get things done or taking on more than I have time to complete. Then again, they might not be related at all but you just avoided something on your to-do-list to read this crazy and disorganized blog. So we are equally guilty, aren't we?
