Sometimes we just have to do things we don’t want to do. That’s just a fact. It could be doing laundry, or homework for school, or ending a friendship. None of these things are ever fun. (at least I don’t think so.) There are many things that we probably don’t want to do. I have found they they are usually the things I NEED to do. God has a way of nudging me (although it sometimes feels like a smack across the head) when I choose not to do something I know I should do.
For a long time God was telling me to end a friendship with someone who really wasn’t that great for me. My friend made me be fake and if I wasn’t they weren’t my friend. I ignored God for YEARS! Each time he mentioned something I would feel more and more convicted. It’s the same for schoolwork. I know I should do my homework and there were a few times when I would rather sit on the couch and read a book with a hot cup of tea next to me. As a result my grades began to drop along with my GPA. Everything we choose not to do has a consequence. It could be conviction or a lower GPA or being naked the next day because you didn’t do laundry.
It’s not enough to just do it. We need to have a good attitude about it too. This, I have found, is MUCH easier said than done. There are days I go to work and I REALLY REALLY don’t want to, but I do it anyway. On the days when I go into work grouchy or reluctantly, they usually don’t go very well. Its usually stressful or frustrating. On the days when I go in telling myself it will be a good day it usually is.
So my advice to my fans (aka readers) it whatever you do, do it with a good attitude. It makes the day much better. Think of it as rainstorms. If you have a bad attitude it’s like a dark gloomy thunderstorm. BUT if you have a good day it is like those days when its sunny and warm and you can see a rainbow. If given the option you should always choose a good attitude.
every little thing is gonna be okaye,
