Motivational Monday - Time
Today's motivation comes from Mother Badu! Lol Everyone always wants to get so deep when they mention Erykah Badu! I'm absolutely a fan and I have been since about 1997! Yeah, we go way back! I can't give you an example of a Badu song that I didn't love. That's a hard feat with me! Well, I wanted to share one of her songs that I think all of us procrastinators at heart could maybe find useful. Life on Earth is finite. We spend so much time not being productive. One of my goals this year was to be more "present". Meaning, not allowing moments to just pass by or saying things like "oh I'll get to it later". We know not the day nor hour that God will call us home. So get to work! Channel your passions and apply them to adding something positive to this world. Lord knows we need some positivity in this world. Don't run away from problems (i.e. ignoring those debt collector phone calls or looking at difficult things as too big to tackle). By doing this, you are wasting time. If you think the problem is big now, just ignore it for a month and watch how much bigger it will get.
On the flip side of that, volunteer now. Take that class you've always been interested in now. Share a conversation with someone now. Connect and converse with the world around you. Don't live your life solely as an observer.
