Your daily thought, point to ponder and soulful reflection.

Daily thought: Don’t put off until tomorrow what you could do today.

Point to ponder: Procrastination is habitual for some, unheard of for others. We can find any excuse to put something off or avoid it altogether. Or we can look for every reason to make it happen. To which side of the scale do you tip?

Soulful reflection: Reality is, unless we are extreme Type A personalities, most of us fall somewhere in the middle, depending on the day. I think it is important to develop a strong relationship with ourselves, so we are attuned to our strengths and weaknesses, allowing us to live honestly and ensure we are holding ourselves accountable where it counts.

This past weekend found me with some less than pleasurable physical roadblocks that I could have easily given into. Living with autoimmune conditions can be debilitating at times, and some of us consider ourselves warriors – and others, sufferers. Fact is, we’re all warriors because it is not an easy plight and each person’s pain is different. It’s exhausting mentally, physically, and emotionally at times.

But I pushed through. I had things I wanted to get done and I wasn’t about to let anything get in my way. Family and friends sometimes give me a hard time when I do this, but I’ve learned to know the difference between when I need to give in or cut my losses, and when I can forge forward. And this week, I am beyond elated that I pushed through.

Sometimes our spirits need the lift that only overcoming obstacles through perseverance can deliver. Sometimes we need to prove that we are stronger than we may feel at times. And sometimes we don’t want to put off until tomorrow what can be done today.

Who knows what tomorrow will bring so if nothing else – make today count in every way you can.
