They’re fun and easy blog fodder – for me often working as a tool to get the creative juices flowing and leading to more posts. Or sometimes they’re my only posts. Whatever the case, they’re fun for me to write, and hopefully fun for (one or two) people to read.
I’ve decided to start my own theme for Saturdays. Say it! Saturday will give me the chance to say something I’ve been meaning to say and haven’t, or something I’ve been saying all week and need to say one more time. Perhaps it’s something I don’t want to say, but must. Some weeks I’ll be on my soapbox, and others I’ll be whispering from under it.
Some weeks it will have context. Some weeks it won’t. I’m not normally the cryptic type, so it’ll likely be the former more often than not, but a girl’s gotta have secrets sometimes, right?
If you’d like to join me in this weekly declaration of sorts, I’d love to see what you have to say. Say your thang in a comment or in your own blog. I bet you have a few things you’d like to get out.
Say it! Saturday, my first edition:
Procrastination will only add more stress to your already stressful life. Stop putting it off.
I used to proudly tout the phrase, “If it wasn’t for the last minute, nothing would get done.” But that stemmed from my college days – when I had way more energy to throw around and much easier problems (though, admittedly, I certainly didn’t think they were so easy at the time). Nowadays I realize that waiting for the last minute to do something only causes unnecessary extra strife.
So whether it’s a looming deadline or a dreaded conversation, do it. Get ‘er done. It’ll seem a much easier task if it’s tackled in planned segments rather than rushed through at the 11th hour.
