We need to throw out the zucchini
“THROW THE ZUCCHINI OUT…AGAIN”
I can see the zucchini in the crisper every single time I open the refrigerator.
I can also see it shriveling.
I think of the zucchini in the crisper every single time “what are we having for dinner” happens.
I remember it, yes.
But I do not make eye contact with the zucchini.
Why is the elegant oblong vegetable that starts with the “cool” letter on my mind?
Because I understand why we might avoid a bill, a difficult conversation, even an awkward encounter.
But why do we avoid things that don’t even bother us all that much?
A zucchini is very different from a bill.
A zucchini is very different from a difficult conversation.
A zucchini may appear similar to but is very different from an awkward encounter.
Want to know how I fix my small procrastinations and irritating avoidances?
1. WE ARE LIVING THROUGH A COLLECTIVE TRAUMA AND I AM TIRED.
2. Sometimes things are just slightly unpleasant and you do NOT have to have a handy tip or trick to delete such things from your human experience.
To be fair, I was going to tell you SMART goals but I gave up on using them.
If you haven’t figured it out yet: this post is an over-ripe, forgot-in-the garden sized zucchini of blithe grace that I have for myself and would like to share with you.
What I will not share, however, is any perpetuation that is the bullshit also known as “multitasking.” Take that trash out. It stinks. Thank you very much.
