“I’ve Got Time!” :: Life of a Proud Procrastinator

Most people assume that when you procrastinate completing tasks, they are unpleasant to you. I do not think that is always the case. If you possess the procrastinating trait like me, you know what I mean. I am a proud procrastinator.

Procrastinating has never been because I loathe the task. On the contrary, things I do not enjoy doing I jump into headfirst to get it out of the way. I feel backward for being like this. Please tell me I am not alone.

I have always felt like I worked better under pressure. My output is somehow enhanced when I do not have time to sit and overthink the situation, problem, or task. I am an over-thinker by nature. I will destroy myself to the core analyzing and re-analyzing every little thing. Truthfully, as we speak, I have procrastinated writing this post.

My husband always tells me one day my task will not turn out peachy keen and I will stop procrastinating. Of course, he was right about me creating a situation where it did not turn out great. I was baking bread, something I have done a million times. I used my exact same recipe as usual but nonetheless I crashed and burned. I broke down and cried. I want to tell y’all I learned a lesson from that. I want to say that I will allow myself enough time in the future to complete tasks but I know this was a fluke. I will continue to live my best procrastinator life.

I feel more productive and accomplished once I have completed my task just in the nick of time. I am not really sure if anything will change my mindset about that. I am sharing all of this to say, if you are like me, a momma who waits till the morning of the bake sale to get up at 4 am and bake cookies, I see you. Those cookies are bomb and as long as you are getting it done, you are nothing short of amazing!
