When calling the dentist is more meaningful than just calling the dentist

I feel awesome.

Sometimes I procrastinate on tasks I’m opposed to in some way but nonetheless have to do. For example, I had to call my new dentist to sort out an insurance matter. It’s something that shouldn’t have been an issue at all, so it just ticked me off. So I kept avoiding it. So I felt stressed when I got another bogus bill for it.

Today I finally called and dealt with it. Of course, it was trivial and easy. I spent WAY more time and energy stewing about how I shouldn’t have to do it and worrying about what would happen than it took to actually just call. This is the case 99% of the time for me.

I am learning and getting better. With help from kicks in the butt from my mom and husband, I don’t fall into this trap nearly as often as I used to. I just need to remember how good it feels to finally get over myself and do it. When the weight is lifted off my shoulders, I feel like this:


So what are you putting off these days? Is there anything you’re building up in your head that’s actually simple? Could you tackle it right now to join me in feeling free and accomplished today?
