|Not actually him...|
Now, some of the things I put off, I do because they are pain-in-the-ass jobs that take either huge slabs of time or energy or both, and putting down Candy Crush Saga long enough to do them doesn't seem worth it. Until the job is so huge that it is HUGE.
Like cleaning the oven...
|That's a lot of roasts on the bottom!|
|Ignore that bit that is baked on really hard and|
won't come off no matter how hard I scrub at it...
The dog is the same. I have a Labradoodle (Labrador cross Poodle), which is great because he hardly sheds, but is not great because that hair grows and if you don't brush him regularly (or he won't let you because he doesn't like his legs being touched), the fur gets VERY matted.
|Hello! My name is Max and I'm really matted |
because my mum doesn't brush me often enough.
|My name is Max, and I'm traumatized...|
I'm similarly lax in grooming myself - the grey stripe resembles a skunk, more often than not:
But it never ceases to amaze me how good it feels after you walk out of the hairdresser, all coloured, cut and blow-dried/hair straightened to perfection (at least until the first time you wash it!):
|Now...about those eyebrows...|
Same goes for losing weight - the more you let it go, the more you have to sweat, diet and say "no thanks" to wine, cheese and cake...
|Sadly, the scales don't magically stay sub-70 |
without consistent effort...
But there also some things that I don't do as often as I should because I'm lazy so-and-so. I don't know why I put them off, because the payoff is SO worth it. Like...
...walking around the corner to the beach:
...playing board games with my kids:
|Just searching for an "n" to make QUINOA|
...even spending um, "quality time" with your husband (I draw the line at taking photos of everything somewhere!).
All these things are brilliant. They are filled with joy, light, laughter and happiness. Life always feels better when you say "yes" (to the good things, I'm practising saying "no" to the not-so-good things). I should do them more often.
What jobs do you put off until tomorrow?
What else should YOU do more often?
