I want to plan our 2014 holiday (because we are taking the lads overseas).
I want to redecorate our bedroom (thanks to Kirstie’s Vintage Home).
I want to recover a chair (because I have cute boys with messy hands).
I want to paint my office chair (because white is nice, but green might be fun).
I want to dust my camera off and take some photographs (because it makes my heart happy).
But I must study (because I have a Child and Adolescent Development exam in 10 days and I have a LOT of content to cover).
Multi-tasking has always been my way, yet I have managed to get things done in life despite my tendency to become easily distracted. But the past four months have shown me things about myself that I am quietly pleased to recongnise. I have been more focused than I have ever been in my life. I have prioritised more efficiently, and I have delayed gratification like I never have before.
My creative urges are screaming out for attention, but they are being told to wait. Not to go away, but to take a seat and wait for me to finish what needs to be done. At 11.10am on the 12th June, I will leave the exam room and these urges can have my full attention for five whole weeks. Delaying gratification makes the gratification so much more…gratifying!!! Creative urge splurge coming up! (Be still my beating heart, get back to the books).
On that note, I best get back to what needs to be done 🙂
