It always amazes me how god ( re-reading this, that was a typo, but very telling don’t you think;)
I feel when I get stuff done and wonder why I don’t just DO IT, more often.
Things never take as long to do as I think they will.
I had a FANTASTIC phone conversation with a friend in the US who has recently, drastically altered her life.
Made a courageous change that I think most of would like to do but haven’t got the nerve.
I was feeling all, ” I can do it’ esque and gung ho to take action, move myself, stir my stumps and I remembered, ( possibly prompted by the length of the overseas call) that I hadn’t paid my international phone bill for about 6 months.
I don’t get around to paying it for months on end because it requires so much EFFORT!! or so I think.
I have to find the auto payment card, and my bank card for an account i only use to pay my international phone bill, and of course the cash which you wouldn’t be surprised to learn really racks up after a few months, I’m a bit of a chatty cathy on the phone.
Then I have to hope they’ll be a parking space.
Then I remembered I have to go and pay several months of Doris’ ‘Challenge’ an at home learning course thing she does, which means the dreaded Post Office.
Then also I had to drive over to Osaka and pick up Kev from the out-laws house.
Normally if I had to drive ALL THAT WAY ( 20 minutes) city driving ( really just a town with attitude) on the dual carriageway!!! I would stress about it for several days. I have to drive through a freakin tunnel for God’s sake.
But I was uplifted and energised by my conversation and in an I-Can-Do-It- mood.
So off I went to Osaka, with my heart racing just a teeny tiny bit, managed the tunnel, stuck to the same route I have been taking for the past 10 years and all was well.
On our return I gather the relevent bits together and I was in and out of the bank in under 3 minutes, P.O. same story.
Oh yes, it feels good to get a lot done.
Now dinner to make, a child to teach, a double episode of Cracker and maybe I’ll even write a book by bedtime, so powerful and achieving as I feel.
