Inner Journey: WHAT ARE YOU PROCRASTINATING?
“The greatest amount of wasted time is the time not getting started.”
— Dawson Trotman
Procrastination seriously drains our energy and our morale. What remains undone nags at us. What are you avoiding?
Make a list of items and then review each one. Does it really need to be done? After you’ve reviewed your list, prioritize it and start one task today.
Please do not procrastinate taking one minute to write down your answer to this question. Capture it on paper and this will help build awareness, commitment and discipline.
“How soon not now, becomes never.”
— Martin Luther

“One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.”
-Joan of Arc
How much of life is determined by fate, and how much by free will? For most of us, it’s some combination, so we consult our horoscopes, just for added information! But as we grow wiser, and stronger, we understand that we are creating our own future, with very step, with every thought. Know who you are, be who you are, and live the life you were meant to lead

Daily Tarot: The Fool
This is one of those days when everything is up in the air and you doubt that you could do much even if you tried. Nonetheless, things can go well when some unexpected good luck comes your way. Your carefree attitude can attract some unexpected help to keep you going and to make things interesting if not fun. Uncertainty can be inspiring in its own way.
