I almost pressed the snooze button. I felt tired and grainy, and I really didn’t want to get out of my warm bed. However, I knew from experience that pushing the snooze button would only prolong the inevitable.
I started thinking about the other snooze buttons in life. These buttons are when you try instigating something in your routine that you're totally committed to, and then, you find yourself doing the opposite. "I’ll try to get exercise tomorrow." "I’ll try to eat more fruits and veggies next time." "I know I said I that today would be the day that I start meditating, but I’m just not in the right headspace for it yet."
These are all examples from my life at one point or another. I can be creative when it comes to generating reasons why not to do whatever I said I wanted to do. And then I feel bad.
How many times in your life have you pressed the snooze button for one reason or another? What might happen for you if you didn’t press pause on going for whatever it is you say you want and actually following through with it?
In this episode of Growing in Uncertainty, I talk about how to stop pressing the snooze button and instead engage with the change you say you want to make.
