Here's a great question


for procrastinators or for anyone else who is a little timid about jumping into something new....


Sometimes when I hear that question, I shrug my shoulders, not yet ready to jump in. At other times, it plants itself a little more firmly in my mind and gives me a glimpse of what could happen if I actually immerse myself into all of the potentiality that exists. If I actually give my ideas the wings they need to fly.

At other times, it nudges me in another way. Like, 'If I don't fold the clothes now, when will I?' or 'If I don't cook dinner now, when will we finally sit down to eat?' (Which is very helpful when you're a procrastinator or are busy editing photos on your iPhone.... just sayin'.)

This photo is one I took last year when we were in Jamaica. It was dusk, and this one guy was about to venture into the ocean.... He had been waiting all week for the conditions to be safe enough, and that night, they were.

My husband joined him for this adventure. 

I stayed on shore. To take pictures. The ocean was a little too dark and creepy for me by then.

Great post.
I often ask myself that question ... as I get older I seem to procrastinate more and more. I don't know if that's bad or good. :-)

Timing is often the reason. It has to feel right.

I've used this saying before on a selfie I did about a year ago. I love the ocean...but i'm with you...I'd have stayed up top and dry too. Love this Roban.

Btw-I'm looking into getting away from e blogger for my own look-how do you even know where to start looking!!?? I LOVE your header.

Kelly, my blog is on blogger. I created the header with a mosaic maker and cropped it to fit. I want to learn how to put the buttons on, etc. Maybe we should dive into this new blog look at the same time!

love the photo and like you, i would have stayed out of the water to "shoot' instead of diving or swimming.....

i can procrastinate with the best of them, so this is a saying i need to have tattooed to my arm :)

but that would hurt :(

LOL.....xo

ps....the headers/banners for blogger are easy to make in picmonkey, too :)
