The ‘P’ Word!

We all have encounter the dreadful ‘P’ word at some point in time.  A word that can render many of  us powerless just like giving kryptonite to Superman. Of course, there are probably some who this word has the reverse effect on and they are able to leap tall buildings with a single bound. 

However, I’m not one of them … at least not at the moment. Yep, if I recall correctly, I’ve been on both sides of the ‘procrastination’ coin.  Today, and for a whole lot of days, the ‘p’ word has gotten the best for me. 

So, I thought I would share some words that came to mind as I dealt with my own procrastination rut in acrostic form!

PUTTING IT OFF!

RUINS PLANS!

OUCH!

CRAM!

ROBS YOUR DAY!

ANNOYING!

STINKS!

TOO LATE!

I’LL DO IT LATER!

NO URGENCY!

AVOID IT!

TRY AGAIN!

INSTEAD OF!

OVERDUE!

NO FUN!

What about you? What word(s) come to mind when you battle the ‘P’ word? What effect does procrastination have on you? kryptonite? strength? Let me know you thoughts! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Choice

One of my ‘Everyday inspiration’ assignments was to select one word from a list that speaks to me in some way.  My choices were …

  • HOPE
  • REGRET
  • HOME
  • CHOICE
  • SECRET
  • ABUNDANCE

I have a hard enough time with choosing my words for a sentence or two, most days.  So, you can imagine my struggle with focusing on one word. 🙂

I selected the word … choice. My day, like any other day, was filled with lots of choices. Some good, some bad! Some I would do again and some I wouldn’t! Choices come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes, I have an idea of what the impact of my choice would be. And there are times when I’m totally caught off guard by my choice. 

For instance, as I prepared my post for ‘Write Anything Wednesday’, I was faced with a the choice of how to do my post. Another choice I faced was what reactions would I get from my post choice.  So, I choose to do my post in poetry form.  Although I can’t choose how you will react to my post, I do hope that you do choose to read and enjoy it.

Write Anything Wednesday – I write because…

Well, my ‘Write Anything Wednesday’ post is a day behind but better later than never … right.  For this post, I decided to kill two birds with one stone.  I recently started the  ‘Finding Ever day Inspiration’ course and I’m little behind on it too.  The goal of this course is to motivate me to write daily, which has been a huge challenge for me!

So here’s the day 1 assignment prompt  … ‘I write because’ whereas I basically explain why I write.

I write because of my enjoyment for writing, my way with words, and my ability to communicate with ease in written form. I write because it’s fun! I write because it can help others! I write because it can help me! I write because it’s a fun hobby! I write because it could lead to fame, recognition, and fortune!  I write because it’s something I ‘ve always dreamed of doing! I write because it’s inspiring! I write because it’s encouraging! I write because it’s peaceful! I write because it’s an outlet for stress! I write because I have something to say! I write because it get’s me through the day! I write because I can!

 

Write Anything Wednesday – May 18, 2016

Write Anthing Wednesday – Parking Between the Lines

parking_5.11.16

Nothing frustrates me more than one’s inability to park between two white lines, especially when they are parking next to me!  In the picture above, my car is the one on the right,  The other car belongs to another resident who lives in the building in front of me.

I took this picture one morning, while I was out on my patio.  What’s even more amusing about this the parking job is it was the second attempt made by the driver to park between the lines.  Yes, I observed the driver pull into to the parking spot, then back up, pull in again, and park the exact same way as the first time.  Mind you. I usually have a laugh or two in situations like this but I was in now mood for laughter when I saw how close the car door came to hitting my car.  As well as, the driver proceeded to get several shopping bags out.

As I’m watching this whole ordeal unfold, I’m debating with my self on why it is so hard to park between to lines.  IT boggles my mind every time I see someone have difficulty doing this.  And yes, this is not the only driver in our complex that parks like this.  Also, this is one of the reason that I like to park on the end so that I can get as close to the curb as I can to avoid my car being ding by somebody’s door.

Of course, I feel that I shouldn’t have to park my car in this manner because the other person doesn’t know how to park their car properly.   Since the property manager doesn’t do anything the parking, it’s futile for me to say something to them about it.  So, I guess I’ll continue to take photos and add them to my ‘creative drivers’ photos. One of these days, I might have to post the photos of all those drivers.

Anyway, that’s my rant … I mean post for this week’s Write Anything Wednesday!

Enjoy!

Write Anything Wednesday – Overdue!

Well, I guess I’ve been away long enough … and it’s time to give my blogging a shot again! There’s no one reason for my blogging drought, so I won’t even dwell on them all … and I just file them all under “life got busy.”

During my drought, I read a lot of articles and built up my motivation to make this attempt more successful.  To get me started, I decided to participate in several events from the Daily Post.  I hope this will help me develop a consistent blogging/writing time, so that my blog awareness will grow.

One of my goals for the past years is to become a successful blogger! Also, I hope that my blog would help those who stumble upon.  Yes, success doesn’t happen overnight but it definitely won’t happen if I continue to do nothing.  So this year, I will strive to be different and make this my most successful blog year, ever!

Of course, I know it’s not going be easy but I think I’m up to the challenge … so this is my first post for the event ‘Write Anything Wednesday!’

And we’re off and running …
