Epiphany

by Rish Outfield

Procrastination is my greatest enemy, I realized today. I put so much off in the past: things I should have done immediately, things I should have said in the moment, things I should have dared before they stopped mattering. But I didn't do them or say them or achieve them or try them, because there was always a reason - a perfectly logical, sound reason - not to. And look at the whole that is my life: forty-something, balding, alone, stupid, with nothing to show for myself except regrets and what-might-have-beens. I don't know if it's too late to salvage something, but starting today, I swear that I am never going to procrastinate again. Or maybe starting first thing tomorrow.

Hey! You finished this 6S. That's a start. And pretty soon you'll be fifty-something! That's progress.

Funny yet sad. I am procrastinating right now. I should be taking my online classes but with twit and goodreads. There are so many distractions.
