Throw back Thursday, blogging style. This post was originally published on 05-APR-2013. It was part of a series called 5-minute Friday. Where with a one word prompt you write for five minutes unfiltered.

It is time to join Lisa-Jo for 5-minute Friday. The time of day where you write for 5 minutes,unedited, just to show you can.

After I grow up I will do something meaningful.
After the kids go to bed I will relax.
After the husband goes to work I will clean the house.
After, after, after….

Why do we wait so long? I mean, I am the absolute worst at this! I put stuff off all the time. Not the important stuff, like taxes and work or family related. But “me” stuff. I am forever saying I will get a pedicure, when there is time. I will meet out for a girls night, after everything else is taken care of. I will read an adult book after I put the girls to bed.

Not that I don’t enjoy my life. But there is so much I am putting off until AFTER I do this one thing….

So why do we always wait for AFTER? Why can’t we live in the now! We put everything and everyone before ourselves, leaving our needs for after. After what? For after World Peace? For After our kids are grown (which sadly will come way before World Peace)?

I don’t have the answer for this one, but maybe after work today I will….

Time’s up!

    Ah… brilliant ending!! I LIVE THIS. I always feel like I need to get ‘things done’ before I get to treat me to relaxing ME time. This is how I live… ALWAYS. And after this and that and day after day and year after year… I hardly EVER ever ever ever am done. I STILL need help putting the breaks on and taking a breath for myself. Sigh…

    I get this. I get you girl.
