I got a reprieve. Yes, I had an excuse. I needed to be out of town a few days. They let me reschedule.
I postponed the inevitable. Are you good at that like me?
If I don't like an appointment---just reschedule
If I want to avoid a bad scene---just reschedule
If I don't want to face a responsibility---just reschedule
How many times can a person do that anyway?
Foolishly I think, well if I ignore it then it will soon go away. If I pretend it isn't there maybe it will disappear.
Have you discovered what I did? When I ignore my responsibilities and deny my accountabilities they always pile up high and then I always get depressed. (What else should I expect)
However when I face up to them and take care of them in a timely manner BIG SURPRIZE.
The depression "miraculously" disappears. Maybe that is a spiritual lesson?
