Getting things done…

At last!

For a few months I’ve been putting things off. I used to sort things out regularly and efficiently in my old job, but when I left things changed.

I was always at the beck and call of people, sorting out their problems. My mind would work through possibilities and come up with solutions.

When I finished work I tried to get elected as a Councillor. I still wanted to help people and saw it as a way of using my skills. But the electors chose someone else. My political party had lost support. Then I regrouped and started a college course.

But as the months have gone on I have felt more and more overwhelmed. Putting things off to the end of semesters. Leaving the paperwork sitting on my desk. Why? Prevarication…. I wasn’t trusting myself to get things right. A couple of things had gone wrong and I was scared to try again. Would I succeed? Could I cope? Health issues for both me and hubby have increased my stress levels..

Anyway, today I did half the things on my list (about four of them) I’ve got more to do but I feel better about it.

Fingers crossed I can do more tomorrow.

  1. ((hugs)) Sounds familiar…I used to be SUPER organized (did it as part of one of my jobs, in fact) but lately…past few years…chaos is creeping up on me. Considering all the important “stuff” we deal with online & how that was supposed to reduce paperwork, it amazes me how the paper piles up. Ugh. And I still haven’t found homes for my art supplies! They’re still living out of boxes after being shifted around so I could “reorganize” them. Anyway, I feel for you. Stress makes everything worse. 🥰👋
