I find myself saying the phrase "not today" numerous times throughout the week. I really want to rid my daughter of her paci, but every night when she lays down I say "not today" because I know there are too many things going on the next day for her to have a rough night begging for her binkie... meetings, school, church, etc. I've done this for over a month now, every night thinking the same thing- "today is NOT that day!" I've realized that "that day" will never come. In my life, there is ALWAYS something going on tomorrow. That's just how it is... and the binkie is just an example. I tend to put some of the hard things off because I know I have to use my energy to focus on the things I need to do to survive today.... but with that attitude, growth will never come. In order to become who I need to be, I need to do the hard things... TODAY.
