Do you have a project that you keep putting off? We were in the hospital last week for 5 days and before we left, I STILL hadn’t taken down my Christmas tree! I do tend to be later than most all of my friends when it comes to taking down Christmas decorations, but I don’t usually wait this long. I came home from the hospital and saw the Christmas tree still up and my heart sank! I still don’t want to mess with it……but why, you ask?
1. We store all the boxes in the basement….. I don’t want to go down there.
2. It’s a big job to get it all packed up and put away.
3. We have to take the boxes BACK DOWN.
OK, so I’m feeling a bit lazy being 33 weeks pregnant. But, I did enlist the help of my 2 favorite teenagers to do my box fetching. What a blessing they are to me! We had it all taken down, boxed up and back into the basement within a few hours. It really wasn’t THAT bad. I don’t know why I procrastinate so long sometimes.
I’m sure YOU haven’t waited as long as ME in taking down your Christmas decorations, but I have a feeling there’s something that you keep putting off. My challenge to you this week is to go find that thing…the one you’re dreading, and DO IT! If it’s a huge task, break it down into smaller bite size pieces, like Crystal suggests in her book 21 Days to a More Disciplined Life.
