Sometimes we make things harder than they need to be. We can come up with lots of reasons and excuses for why we can’t seem to get around to what we really need to do. Sure, the reasons can be valid; but often, regardless of the reason, we just need to pony up and do it anyway.
This simple lesson really hit home recently when I was asking one of my kids to do something. An all-too-common response is, “But Mom, I don’t feel like it right now,” or, “Mom, I don’t want to.” And what do we as moms say in response? “Just do it anyway.”
This Messy Monday, may we find help for getting it together by following our own advice. Even when we don’t feel like it, let’s give ourselves a dose of our own medicine: “Just do it anyway.”
