The REAL ME..A Self Portrait

I am a self professed procrastinator. I put things off until way past the last minute. Procrastinators always volunteer for special projects and jobs for other people. I don't know why I do that but I have noticed that the older I get the worse it seems to get. It seems like we think we can redeem ourselves by accomplishing things for other people! I love to plan parties and big extravaganzas. I always get involved in weddings and celebrations. Mainly because I love to decorate ! Procrastinators have to make lists. We must have them to survive. Sometimes I have the same list going in several places at once because procrastinators seem to misplace things easily. Sadly, alot of these things on my list don't get accomplished. That is very unsettling for a procrastinator. Especially when coupled with that disorder, you throw in a kick of perfectionism. Not traits that compliment each other! But, when I do get moving on things.....projects, "to do's", housecleaning, there is NO stopping me. I am full speed ahead and it sometimes lasts for days. Things are "flying" in all directions and I feel POWER...I start checking things off like crazy. It is incredible...... I just wish it happened more often!

I just don't get that power. I procrastinate all the time but the super cleaning thing just doesn't hit me.
