I procrastinated, and it’s okay!

My friend Suzie Humphreys gave me some important feedback after she read the blog post I wrote recently about procrastination.

Suzie reminded me that, of course, it’s okay to procrastinate on writing a blog post when you’re taking care of your daughter who is battling breast cancer.  Thank you, Suzie. You are right.

When someone you love is ill, your normal life STOPS. Taking care of that person is your first priority.

I didn’t need to write about how procrastination can be a form of self-medication or how it can be a tough battle. I just needed to remind myself and you, too, that sometimes it’s okay to procrastinate.

I am taking care of Ranna, but I also am taking care of myself by consciously delaying some of the tasks that I normally would be doing. I have to stay healthy to take care of my daughter.

I needed to ask for help. And I did that. My colleague Patti helped me tremendously with our real estate business, Joy did more than her share with our blog and my husband Tom helped with the housework and drove Ranna to the doctor when I couldn’t.

Most important, I needed to quit trying to be super-realtor, super-blogger, super-mom and super-wife.  I know I need a reminder about that sometimes. I am not superwoman. I do not have to be superwoman. I don’t want to be superwoman.
