I’m going to start this post out with a truth about myself. As I’ve mentioned before, I want my blog to be a place of painful honesty, and I want my readers to know me – the good, the bad, the pretty, and the ugly. I want you to know the real me, even if that means I’m showing you my flaws. Because, the truth is, I’m a super flawed human being. I believe we all are, but the beautiful part is that we can change; we can apologize, forgive, and continue to grow as a person.
But that’s not what I’m writing about today. Maybe in the future, but not right now. Today, I need to tell you something.
It’s extremely important, especially if you’re just getting to know me.
You see, the thing is, I’m a huge procrastinator.
No joke! I think it’s a family trait, since my mom is also a professional procrastinator, and, not of her own will, she passed it on down to me. It’s not the best blessing nor is it an admirable habit, but at least I’ve got chores and belongings to procrastinate doing. I mean, I could be so poor in blessings and gifts that I have nothing to put off – no laundry to “fold tomorrow”, no pet rats whose cage needs to be cleaned, no happy daughter to bathe after a day at the beach, no car to take into the shop.
All of that to say, I procrastinate on a regular basis. It’s a habit I’m trying to break, but if you were to browse my social media profiles just a little, you would see that it has not yet been severed.
You see, I promised my friends, family, and readers something – publicly! I posted it all over my profiles; Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and possibly even Snapchat.
Five days ago, I promised you a certain post featuring a special someone and discusing a helpful topic. I promised to deliver that post to you all on Thursday.
I failed to write it, to post it, to even mention it to myself. I’m sorry I failed. But you know something? I’m still going to do it!
I meant what I said and I said what I meant! An elephant is faithful ONE-HUNDRED percent!
Just because I didn’t deliver on time (aka procrastinated the writing of said post), that doesn’t mean I won’t write it at all! I promised you a particular post, and that particular post I will give! Within the next few days.
To use my all-time favorite, most repeated quote: ‘An elephant is faithful one hundred percent!’
Not that I’m an elephant, but you get the point.
