Lost my mo-jo?
Why do I always NOT stick to a task? I was never a hyper child, and I can never recall being easily distracted. Sure I would be off with the fairies at times, day dreaming or observing something that perhaps the other kids didn't. And no, Alhamdulilah I don't have autism. So here I am, in my mid 20's (okay, kinda creeping towards the 30 mark), and I am still distracting myself if I find the opportunity to.
So at around lunchtime, I wrote a rather large list of things to do around the house. I even put square and circle tick boxes just to motivate myself. I got as far as the first item, that being to pray, and completed the task. Tick! Then onto the next item, right? Umm...not quite. It is now miserably dark, the sun has set (okay, in London that means 4pm - grr!) and I ended up spending the whole day throwing out things. Yes I did do work, but not what I originally set out to do. It was a hell of a lot of fun though. I threw out clothes (okay, I will give them to charity), receipts, beauty products I have never ever used, and so forth. After throwing out items, you would think I would now be going back to the original list to start ticking it off. Instead I find myself on Blogger!
I wonder if there will ever come a day when I learn to stick to a list/plan.
Do people learn to do that with age, or does this "distracting" oneself get worse?
I better get some food into me. This is way too deep for my liking. Getting back into blogging isn't easy, ya know? ;)
