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.
