I do a small amount of volunteer work from my home for a non-profit organization. It is nice to contribute to something productive, but I would be lying if I said this was a huge number of hours being invested for them.
My problem is that I’m still not okay with being on disability, so I insist on finding ways to keep working. Yes, my doctor says I am stubborn!! As the picture shows, I am definitely a work in progress. . .
My second problem is that I have become a procrastinator. Now, a few people may think they are pros at this. I have worked at setting a Guinness Book of World Records since I stopped working. I am not good without goals! I had 411 unread emails as of this morning. I sense how impressed you are with my skills (yes, I’m kidding!).
All that information combined meant that I waited until this morning at 7 am to log into the company website to do work I was given a week ago. I learned the hard lesson that they don’t allow anyone to access their website before or after regular business hours, so now I will be rushing to get my work done. . . to hide my laziness. 🙂
This had a remarkably positive experience on me. I actually sat, relaxed, enjoyed my coffee. I thought about using that new exercise room, but I think I made a revelation this morning and didn’t do so. It’s okay to relax. It may even be good for me!
