I recently set out to make a SoulCollage card for procrastination. I had wanted to collage for several weeks. I had many ideas I wanted to get down on paper. I had the time but I couldn’t seem to get myself motivated to start. There were other things in my life that needed to get underway as well. It just wasn’t happening. Why was I procrastinating. This was all a puzzle to me. I thought that a procrastination card would help me.
Well I have to tell you when I finished the card I was absolutely shocked at what I had before me. This was not about procrastination at all but about being overwhelmed with all the possibilities. It was about being overwhelmed with all that needed to be done. There it was right in front of me.
This is what my card said to me…
I am the one who is overwhelmed by all there is to do.
I see so many options and opportunities I cannot decide. I
am the one pressured by the clock, by the calendar,
by the feeling that I must do it all,
that I must be superwoman.
I am the one who can’t take the first step.
Instead I fall deeper, deeper.
I am the one who is constantly reminded that
time is passing, flying, slipping away.
Time is money.
The search goes on.
Which direction should I take?
Is there time to stop and smell the roses?
Accept, make a wish list, and enter your destination.
Start moving forward, not back.
Make time work for you.
