The good kind of procrastination

the good kind of procrastination / a thousand threads
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about saying no – or, learning to say no. You see I’m not really built that way. I’m more of a worrier… saying no could mean a missed opportunity, a missed opportunity could mean a major setback, and a major setback could mean the end of the world (hey you never know…).

… except that it’s never the end of the world. And sometimes, in order to stay sane, you have to know when to just let it all go.

I keep thinking back to a post I remember reading on Jess’ blog, where she talks about making a conscious decision not to worry now about the things that can wait for the future.

Or to put it simply… “let’s not try to figure out everything at once.”

So the next time I have a worry about the future, or a priority that doesn’t need to be at the top of the list, I’m putting it on Future Laicie’s to-do list.

After all, Future Laicie has her shit together – she can figure it out.

What about you? Are you a worrier who has trouble saying no? Or are you all zen and shiny and never stressed?

(If you are I want your secret… is it green tea?

I think it might be green tea…)
