Day 174 Days of Recovery from Procrastination

Everyday is a new beginning. Its never the same, it is not like yesterday and it wont be like tomorrow, because when we live in the prensent, we become only focused on the Now and how it is in that moment.

Once you are past that second or minute in time, you an not go back and change it. We can make amends if we have to, but we can not change it. It’s happened and now its gone.

I have dwelled on my mistakes to much through out my life. The should have’ s, the could have’s and the what if’s. I have come to realise that shoulda, coulda and woulda, don’t cut it, if you want something, work for it. Dream about it, make it a reality.



I have had a lot of self doubters in my life, people who have told me quite bluntly that they didn’t think i would ever do what ever it was i said i was going to do.

It has amazed me and saddened me at the same time. Sure there has been plenty of things i have started, but haven’t finished, but there is also so many things i have done that i am proud of, because some of it took a lot of patience, because it took a really long time for some of my dreams to become a reality.

It’s taken me a really long time to realise, that i should not feel guilty for putting myself in the front row instead of the back row or even in the middle really.

When i was born i was given my name Elisa, it was chosen with love and care. Over the years i have worn many other hats, mother, sister, daughter, nearly wife, friend, but at the end of the day, i am still me.

I am Elisa.

That is what i had lost for a long time. My sense of identity. Who was i? Why was i here? What is my purpose in life?

I am now finding me again, everyday i am slowly emerging and growing. It is such a wonderful feeling.

I am learning to have my voice again, but this time a voice of wisdom and understanding, not a timid voice that sometimes seemed to roar, out of ego and pitty more than any thing else.

Life is good, life is simple when you don’t over complicate it.
