22 In 22: Fresh Paint

Sometimes it can be hard to make time to do the things that have been crying out to be done but cry too quiet for us to hear. Hectic jobs, active social lives, that doctor’s appointment scheduled at just the wrong time, these are some of the things that can distract us from doing the things that aren’t necessarily important but things that will make us feel like giving ourselves a little pat on your back when completed.

Sure you’re swamped with work to do but does that mean you have to become a grumpy recluse. Sure you can make time to go to bar with your mates, chatting up the same sort of girls, hoping to get their number when you know she’s out of your league. Sure you can binge watch that show that everyone has been talking and raving about, turning into a hermit crab, locking out the world and if you’re lucky enough to have someone to binge with, enjoy a very long Netflix & Chill session. Sure your garage needs to be de-cluttered but you have much more important things to do such as sorting out your collection of miscellaneous objects scattered all across the living room, looking at and thinking about clearing up that questionable clump of stuff underneath your bed before thinking that it sounds like a hard job and leaving it for another day and making grilled cheese sandwiches using the toastie machine you haven’t used in months knowing full well that you’re not going to use it again for some time again.

It’s easy to procrastinate, we all do it but sometimes when you put your mind to a task, you can be amazed by what you can achieve. It doesn’t have to be a big task, start small if you want and slowly work at completing it. You’ll be amazed as to why you didn’t do it earlier once you get past getting the ball rolling and when you have the momentum going for it, it can feel like nothing can stop you, all that time procrastinating was time wasted, being productive isn’t so boring or so daunting as you thought it would be. A fresh coat of paint every now and again does no harm at all.
