Unpleasant tasks

CD60D486-EED9-48F1-80D1-8B1BE356654E

Certain jobs are unpleasant to do

I postpone them as long as I can

Then I postpone them some more

Organizing my tax papers

Calling the roofers

Or the contractor I need to call

All kinds of paperwork

Visiting the bank adviser

Gardening and especially weeding

These are the tasks I avoid

Is there a solution?

I don’t know

They say you can’t wait to feel like it before you start

You just set a time and do it whether you want to or not

Today is one of those days

And I’m postponing my tasks

It’s much more fun to read and write

But I’m an adult and sometimes

I need to do those unpleasant tasks that need to be done

Circle and square

Sometimes when we are facing interpersonal problems
We forget that most likely
We are part of the solution
That learning to thinks and act differently
Can change the dynamics of the situation

We tend to want to tell others how to live
To make things easier for us or remove our hurt and pain
We don’t realise that sometimes
It’s us who has to change
We have no control over other people’s actions
But we can determine our own response and attitude

In trying to fit a square peg through a smaller circle
We can complain that the circle is too small
Or we can shave off the edges of the square
