Yes...it IS the 3rd of January...and I haven't done one spec of taxes for 2013. Yes, this is avoidance. Delaying taxes is a repeated theme in my life. Delaying the unpleasant is a repeated theme. I am ODD. I KNOW that once I start all unpleasant tasks, I usually end up finding satisfaction of some sort in the doing...or PEACE...but that does not spur me to move. I WILL CHANGE the delaying this year. For my taxes... Meg's Money Desktop app along with a new accountant will hold me to it. Change is in invigorating. Just KNOWING that this is the LAST TIME I WILL EVER SIT here with baskets of receipts and an empty excel spread sheet is ALMOST enough to get me started. STARTING is the hard part for me....but ONLY when I feel the task is unpleasant. Right? Soooo...how to make taxes appealing??? How to make all unpleasant things TO ME, appealing? I have thought how accountants LOVE their work...they figured it out...there must be a smidge of that "liking it" out there for me?
Delay tactic number one and most common: Dreaming.
I am dreaming of the year ahead. 2014. The numbers just LOOK right, right? This is my year. This is MY LIFE :) And yours xxooxx
You will be impressed with how fit and radiant I look :)! I am T-voing ELLEN more and actually dancing with her daily. I LOVE to dance...WHY haven't I done it more? That pause you couldn't see was my breaking to dance to BLACK EYED PEAS I Gotta Feeling and then had to keep dancing to WALKING on SUNSHINE :). I QUIT just dreaming and start DOING in 2014. I laugh so much my tummy is tight from THAT workout. All these ideas and opportunities I am exploding with are happening with the people I love, the people I want to meet, and those I want to get to know better. I'm going to meet Oprah. And sometimes those people....that person... is JUST ME :) I keep learning to love ME this year. God made me and like I have said before...IS CRAZY MAD IN LOVE WITH ME...I want to learn to love what HE (they) LOVES the way HE LOVES :) I take more time for WHO and WHAT I love. I read some of the most favorite books I've ever read. So FUN to not even know which ones they are yet!!! I attract only kind and gently life lessons. I go to double and triple features on a WORK day! I teach myself a working knowledge of Astrology. I spend a week at St. Augustine beach by myself most of the time. I continue to be tutored by the great minds and hearts LIVING on the planet, and those who are in other realms. I will HEAR myself. I am in charge of my body, my mind, and my schedule and I stay focused on my target goals. I break my goals into baby steps. I continue to work my grasp of LIVING IN THE PRESENT. I notice my feelings. I am like Doreen Virtue has said "I take up my spirited arms and move with swift speed into the night, awakening one and all to the magic that is life itself". I choose my energy and what I create. I learn to manage the power of my creation! I CHOOSE Love, Laughter, Kindness and Happiness. I create memories and events that live for eternity with the loved ones I experience them with. I keep Brene Brown close. I rejoice in my failings that I am one step closer to success. I commit to my dreams for the long haul.
This is ALOT of I's. I wonder if I am making others uncomfortable with all these I's or if it is just me? Nope...I'm good.
Day 3 of 2014 is showing amazing promise for the rest of the days....Starting Taxes NOW.
