I Don't Feel Like It

Have you used those words?

I don’t feel like…whatever.

That’s how I feel right now as I am writing this post.

I don’t feel like it.

Actually, I take that back.

I didn’t feel like it all day.

I didn’t feel like taking the time to write this, thinking that I could skip just this once.

But I made a commitment to myself that I would post a minimum of once per week.

So, it doesn’t matter if I feel like it or not.

Decisions have no prescription for tramadol nothing to do with feeling.

I didn’t feel like taking a walk today, even though I knew I needed some fresh air and some exercise.

But I did it anyway.

Was it the most effective workout?

Not close.

But I felt better afterwards because I did something that I didn’t feel like doing.

When it comes to doing something that you committed to, even when the feeling is gone, how do you handle this? I would love to get your feedback.

    Hi Annette, I know that feeling well. I joined a blog challenge to write one post per day all thru October and it was really hard. Especially since I’m a photographer and so was concerned that I’m putting out quality work. Now that Oct is over and I can relax, I’ve gone and joined BolgHer’s Nanoblogmo for November…what am I like? Anyway, it’s good for me to push myself and I suspect it might be good for you too. πŸ™‚ Visiting from UBC and hoping you’re having a relaxing and push-free weekend.

    I feel like this more often than I care to admit. I started the UBC for this month and I already know there are going to be days when I don’t want to write. But after completing a few 30/30 poetry challenges, I’ve learned that it’s easier to shake off that “blah” feeling when you have someone to keep you motivated and accountable. Rely on friends and family if you need an extra push. It’s also important not to put too much pressure on yourself; take baby steps if you need to. Good luck!
