In mid-life, edging close to retirement here I sit - still wondering what I want to be, "when I grow up"! And, at this stage of the game, my biggest desire is to find more hours in a day. Is that wise? If I had more hours in a day, that would leave more time to use and abuse "procrastina(tion)". Is it an excuse? Is it laziness? Is it a feeling of inadequacy? Is it fear of failure and/or rejection? Is it a lack of inspira(tion) and/or dedica(tion)? Or simply my self-induced excuses for distrac(tion)? Hmmm ... and I end this chatter with another good (tion) word ... contempla(tion)!!!
contemplation: thoughtful observation; full or deep consideration; reflection: religious contemplation; purpose or intention; prospect or expectation
I hope you enjoy a day of contempla(tion), inspira(tion), and dedica(tion), and earmark distrac(tion) and procrastina(tion) ... for another day!! ~nr lenz
