How are you feeling today? Like many of us, Monday’s are hard. You’ve had the weekend to do whatever you want and then, Bam! Monday’s here. It’s back to a routine and back to work or school.
I’m going to give you some advice I learned from a very smart, intelligent, strong, and courageous woman. My mom. Years ago she told me something I will never forget. I was in high school and I was getting ready to go to church, but I really didn’t “feel” like going. I was kind of down and really just not in the mood to go. She asked me what was wrong and I told her. She then said to me in these words, “When you don’t feel like doing something is when you need to do it the most.” I have never forgotten and remind myself of that often. Of course, this doesn’t mean go and do something bad when you know and feel it’s not good for you. I’m talking about good things like going to work or school, church, a family member or friend’s house, out with family or friends, charity work, mission work, and so on and so forth. For me, at that moment, it was church. Well I went, and I tell you, I am so glad I did. The pastor said just what I needed to hear.
I encourage you to think about it next time you decide you don’t “feel” like doing something. It might be just the thing you need.
