Written Sunday afternoon February 26th: I started redecorating my bedroom between Christmas and New Year’s. I was okay with it not being done quickly. I learned from the process. Now I see that choosing a color for the bookcase had all progress stalled for this past month. I didn’t want to choose the ‘wrong’ or less than ideal color. So I chose not to choose. I journaled the other morning about the few tasks I had procrastinated and why. Usually it was because I feared the outcome so not beginning was an act of self preservation. Once I make the ‘decision’—taking action follows naturally.
This week I put all of my procrastinations on my action board and gave them a day and a time slot, more than one if I needed to revisit the task. Eating a big job in chunks! Painting the bookcase was my Sunday to do. Jeff and I took a piece of carpet to Lowe’s on Saturday and matched the color and had a quart of paint mixed. Easy peasy. I chose and it’s done. Once we were in the action stage of the process I was highly motivated so we started painting after dinner! Today we did the touch-ups and I hope I will have the energy this evening to put it in place and add my books and knickknacks.
Photos of finished room coming soon! Booyah!
