Feeling like it

If you don’t feel like doing something you know you must do, it’s fine to feel that way. Accept and appreciate that feeling, allow and experience it.

Then once the feeling has finished having its say, it will go along on its way, and you can do what you know you must do. You can feel that feeling completely without giving in to it or fighting against it.

When you feel the urge to do what you know you must not do, go ahead and let yourself feel it completely. Be thankful for the feeling, and then just let it go.

Your feelings are yours to experience and enjoy, to learn from, to inform you, and to give richness to your life. But they never have to define you or control you.

You can do what you have chosen to do, whether you feel like it at the moment or not. Just as you have created the feeling, you can let it go.

Decide what you will do with this day, and then do what is necessary to make it happen. You’ll find that to be the best feeling of all.

— Ralph Marston
