Procrastination Is Not A Self-Love Practice

Last night I was perusing the Community bucket list site at Community Bucket List of which I am a member. I was reading the progress the other members were making on their bucket list goals. It became crystal clear that I have been procrastinating.

I’ve been practicing Self-Love on a daily basis, and writing my 10 minute self-love posts consistently if not daily. I’ve been going to work, and I’ve gone to acupuncture appointments and I have gotten a much needed massage. These are all Self-Love actions.

This is the time of the year when the EDRS members and I jump into high gear to prepare for our 6th annual Eating Disorders Awareness Week conference. This is working together in collaboration for a passion in my life, which is to be a part of ending eating disorders. This is also a Self-Love action.

You probably couldn’t tell I’ve been procrastinating by looking at me from the outside, or from reading my Self-Love blogs either, but I have.

So today I commit in this 10 minute Self-Love blog to putting a book proposal out before the end of this month.

I know how much energy I get when I take action on something that has been in my internal queue.
I’ll keep you updated on my progress.

If there’s something you’ve been putting off that you want to do, I support you in committing to take action on it before the end of the month. You may even want to check out the community bucket list site and get support from others who are on the road to accomplishing their bucket list items. Reaching out for support is a loving thing to do.
