So despite my love of organizers, planners, and lists-I am often easily overwhelmed and scattered. This summer I have really begun to notice this more. I make lists of the things that I need to accomplish and the things that I want to do-yet somehow.....Most of them don't get done.
I often forget things I wanted to do and find myself doing other things. As much as I would love to blame this on all the small people that live in my house....I think its me. My lists are fine, my ability to do those things is fine, I just get distracted.
Most often that distraction comes at the hands of my phone. Sometimes it comes in my desire to relax and kick back over the summer. Sometimes it comes from getting-started-itis. That is totally a thing. I am a person that once I start something I can often get it done quickly and well-but getting started is hard. No like I am the person that takes 10 minutes to pick out nail polish because actually putting on my nails isn't hard....its the starting. I have a hard time starting coloring pages...why because its getting-started-itis.
I think this summer I have a few things on my list that are "scary" or "emotional" and that is why I put them off. Organizing and paying the bills stresses me out. I want to make Josie's baby book but I know seeing pictures of her as a baby-especially with my dad will be hard for me. I want to start sewing projects but sewing is new to me and hard so I am worried I am going to mess it up. So like I said-Getting-started-itis.
Even blogging and writing is like that for me....I want to write. I have lots that I need to get out of my brain so I can think better. Yet, sitting down to type is a whole new ball game....Once I start I am good. Clearly anyone who reads this can see that I don't have issue with saying things!!
So what about all of you? Do you have this issue? Any tips for organizing? For getting ahead? Maybe I need to put my damn phone down and just get to it!
