#82: When You Don't Feel Like It

Would you still show up?

"If you don't want to go and you're only dragging yourself to church, maybe you just shouldn't go," said my annoyed Grandma because I couldn't decide whether to go to church or not.

I wanted to go, but I honestly didn't feel like it. I was tempted to sleep, binge-watch my comfort Netflix shows, and rest at home all Sunday. Then I remembered how I don't want to be the kind of person whose actions are dictated by emotions alone.

Because if I only show up and make good on my commitment when I feel like it, when it's convenient, when it's easy—how will I ever grow?

So I did end up going, and I'm happy that I did because the message was something I really needed to hear.

Is there any task or project or event you're avoiding because you don't feel like it? What are you going to do about it?
